?

seems like alot, did you feel it was worth it?
 a big problem with most hotels catering to frum jews
i like your dictionary idea

hashems premier catering service = fresh fruits

the pricing I notate per meal is if you dont stay at the hotel, when you stay at his hotel its all included

I stayed at the metropol 2 weeks ago for shabbes. If you know what to expect you don't get disappointed. It's a heimishe hotel, thats clean, nothing fancy. Same goes for meals....
One thing, that no other hotel can beat is the welcome of mister levin

On friday after skiing, when he saw me walking the lobby for some food a hour before shabbes, he went to the kitchen to get me kugel...

Since the hotel isn't the fancy style nobody goes there all snoby...
I love it, that my kids can run around and nobody cares... people are also much more social then in other places.... I can't tell you what it is, but I really love the place!

@ ua first I flew this route in same class last week. I took the later flight from Zurich, so I only had 45 min connection in Geneva. Plane was 20 min late, but I still made it

I liked the seat and service was good. The service is american (plastic cups...) but the hard product is nice. Crew was very friendly and I would fly them again

Big advantage, it's one of the first flights from europe to land in Newark. No line at passport or customs

My flight back with sq f was a little nicer :-)

Nice job!! Just a few questions
1) you did not have a halb tax?
2) which camera did you use?
3) why didn't you do other areas as well?

Once in the air, I was served a hearty meal from Stogel caterers from Belgium, I was very pleased to finally have some good airplane food. The coconut chicken nuggets were delicious & the simple white rice & cooked string green beans were a perfect compliment. Its a shame that with a country so big as the USA & with so many kosher resources the airlines cant get the ex USA departure meals right.


This is the first time I've ever heard good and Stogel mentioned together
