BBY is same for sefardim and ashkenazim
When I was in Yeshiva there (about 3 months ago) almost none of the ashkenazim ate it (dunno about the sephardim). Machpud on the other hand was a Sephardic Hashgocho that was more widely accepted.

Plus there's like a million more. :) I also know people who will eat Rabbanut Yerushalayim (not Mehadrin) and won't always eat Eida Charedis bc they know of "stuff" that goes on there. Which is why this conversation will never be simple.
your post just serves to confuse. people do strange things all the time

and I know people who make bar mitzvahs for pets. Doesn't make it normal in the slightest

Just a data point, I was at the Wing F lounge recently and got a KSML. It's basically airplane food (Hermoles) but it's nice to have it you're hungry. Also, the Pier orders these meals to the Wing so you can't get one at each lounge.

I believe I've been to two Wing lounges.

One was right after immigration on the left, which seemed to be exclusively for first class passengers.
The other was near the gates and had two sides - the left for business class and the right for first class.

Maybe it's all the same lounge with different entrances? Could be, but it didn't look that way.

I'm 100% sure I entered a Wing lounge near the gates.

As you can see, there are indeed two wing lounges. One on level 6 (which is exclusively for first class) and the other on level 7 (which is divided between business and first).

Seems like it's the same lounge, just upstairs and downstairs.
Unless we should call the 3 floor UA lounge in IAH terminal E 3 different lounges.
