What does it mean that BA1 is all business? The whole plane is business class? When an IB codeshare for BA1 is also business?

I passed by a store in Midwood with a sign "We have kosher & non kosher paninis & salads". Would anyone give a hechsher on such a place ?

Reminds me of the hotel serving shulchan oreich by the seder on Pesach night. The waiter approaches the guest with the soup tureen and asks: "Gebrokts or non-gebrokts?" If the guest answers gebrokts the waiter gives him soup with a kneidel, and if it's non-gebrokts he leaves out the kneidel...

Reminds me of something i heard this past pesach:

Two yidden were sitting together at a pesach hotel luncheon. The first gets up to get food from the buffet, and asks his friend "Would you like me to get you anything". "No thanks, I'll get it myself.", replies his friend. "I don't mish".
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Shoprite (as well as many other stores here in NY) has a sign that says we sell koher and non-kosher products. Doubt anyone would give a hasgacha on a place that prepares kosher and non-kosher food unless there is a mashgiach temidi and there are separate facilities for the preparation, e.g. Shoprite has a kosher sushi counter and non-kosher sushi as well. There are very clear markings and separate prep areas. Kosher area always has a frum person there or its locked.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

That's what it says on the awning. From the outside it looks like a small store/restaurant

Can someone translate the few Hebrew words for me?

It was a FULL PLANE not one seat empty. My daughter got to her window seat and i to my aisle seat. The middle seat sat a חרדי gentleman. He asked if one of us could switch seats to make it a bit more comfortable. I understood but my daughter wasnít giving up her window n being claustrophobic was not giving up my aisle seat. To my surprise he said ok and sat down. Half way towards our trip the male flight attendant ( who was חילוני) said to the man in the middle, in my 20 years of working on El Al i have never seen a very religious man not complain or make a commotion to get his seat changed because he was sitting between two women. The flight attendant takes the manís hand and says with love and sincerity, this is a קדוש השם he probably said it 3x.
 Time went by and i turned to my neighbor n said i heard what the flight attendant told you. First its the month of elul and wow Iím very impressed but i have a question? When you saw you would be sitting between 2 girls why didnít you asked to be switch? The man in the middle said why would i? You told me your daughter likes the window you need the aisle what would be the point of getting angry? To hurt another personís feelings? To let anger control me? He began talking to me about the שלחן עורך about the essence of Torah n love it.
 One more thing about this חרדי man, he kept on apologizing when he asked me to get up to go use the facilities and when he returned to his seat.
 We need to break down these physical barriers or preconceive notions of people based on their external appearance or Bec of a few rotten apples who smell the loudest.
"LESS IS MORE" It is the cumulative effect that kills deals!!! How many times do I have to say this?  >:(
