Are there any NY/Brooklyn or other US based outfits that still prepare KSML equivalent BYOK meals for long haul flights? And will airlines give a hard time storing/heating them etc.?

just a FYI it seems none of the drinks on QR are kosher (except water and seltzer which are always kosher)  all the sodes are copy brands that are made in Kuwait i think
