FOR PRICELINE RESERVATIONS WITH BOOKING FAILURE
Call Priceline 1800-259-2091 dial 3 and then 1 and ask for the contract receipt.
Then fax the contract to Delta with your name, email and phone number to 1801-575-3000
UPDATE: It is no longer necessary to fax in anything to Delta. Just call Delta direct, with the priceline conf number, ask for a supervisor, and they are honoring all tickets! ;D

All kosher meals from the US stink.

I flew icelandair from BOS-RKV in coach and they actually had mealmart meals. They were pretty awful. I spoke to a friend who's dad owns mealmart and he informed me that they stopped producing airline meals 10 years earlier :-\

I've had them too. They were really cheap feeling so maybe they throw them out?

The airline has to buy new flatware and silverware periodically. They send some new ones over to the kosher caterer, and those are sealed into the kosher meals. Once the passenger finishes with the dishes, they are recirculated into regular service.

I flew JFK-LAX last week. Had real flatware on the outbound and plastic on the return. The food was much better on the outbound than the return.

I don't think so. they came in the package engraved delta on it. the caterer most probably uses airline flatware and just kashers them before each use.

Interesting!

So I guess the kashrus doesn't apply to glasses then, only flatware.

Good to know. Contrary to popular belief, glass does have significant kashrus issues.

I meant glass :P
There are poskim who say that glass can become non-kosher when used with hot or cleaned with other non-kosher utensils with hot water.

Meh, my mother bought some Levana's branded dip when we were having her son over for a shabbos meal.
He asked where we got that and we said Ungers.
He's like, don't touch that. We stopped making dips a decade ago!
Which makes perfect sense if you've been inside Ungers.

Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.
