I didn't know that anyone cared that much  :) I'm flying with them next week, I'm pretty sure i'll find someone who doesn't mind if I take a few pics ::)

787 not on SeatGuru yet. How long does it usually take a plane to be posted there?

Most likely because the people who would post pictures didn't for the outdated product

Yes.
Ask for it and report back :)

FAs may not know about it, but have them look or ask the ISM.

Reason is LY owns bornstein and it's in their own interest that they should have better food than the competitors.
Interesting. Doesn't LY give Regal for the SKML ex-NYC?

I'll second the part that experience in LY premium is generally top notch. The reason people are so confused is because unfortunately service in Y is extremely poor.

@Dan, regarding the food, LY SKML is definitely better than KSML on UA. Heck UA KSML comes from the same kitchen as LY KSML and over there it's for sure no comparison. Reason is LY owns bornstein and it's in their own interest that they should have better food than the competitors. Sorry no pics. Maybe I can dig up.
LY can not take food directly to the plane, it most go thru LSG etc. Now if LSG servers me a meal a month after expiration then who is at fault?
