Me too. I actually go to high end restaurants and and ask them to cook my meal the way Borenstein does because I love it so much.

I just laughed out loud ^golden

On board AA in J YYZ-MIA this morning, my pre-ordered Kosher menu selection was not loaded. the FA wasn't even apologetic about it. He just looked down at his manifest as he was taking orders and said "It says here "Kosher"...Not going to happen! Would you like the eggs or the oatmeal?"

Talking about KSML,  An interesting point.
When I flew once from TLV,  the ksml from hamasbia had just a plain yogurt/leben. I noticed my neighbor had the regular meal and the yogurt was a flavored, with a heimish hechsher,   later after they finished serving I asked the FA if they have more from it and they gladly gave it to me.
Talk about discrimination against the frum community...
Why can't the kosher providers give something tasty?

That was a punishment for flying Y to HKG. As a DDFER we expect better 😀

Joke aside. I agree with you 100%. We have organizations for everything. Why isn't there an organization that caters an abundance of food for the hungry Jews? Or at least charge airlines cost price.
Rebshayalyinthesky.org

Maybe we should have a kosher airline food expo, invite airlines and those that are on a strict kosher diet, every caterer should have their best/expensive menu and worst cheapest menu, those that can't differentiate between best and worst should have a separate section.

Perri Spiegel, General Manager of Stogel Kosher Catering, based in Antwerp, explains:

“We offer two kinds of menus:  frozen, which is served on Delta, United, Brussels, Jet, out of Europe, just to name a few of our customers.  We receive great letters and reviews about these meals. They are tasty, and very presentable.  As a matter of fact, they are much better than the meals served out of the States.
