Is BYOK dying?

I was rejected in December on AA from MIA-EZE due to "security reasons."
I was rejected again today on DL from AMS-DTW due to "security reasons."

Anyone else having a harder time of late?
Nothing surprises me when it comes to service from US carriers.

Shot down on AA, DL, and UA this year :(

Seems like federal guidance.

Swiss was happy to do it for me but they requested that its in silver foil not shrink film, and the stewardess actually went around looking for another kosher pax to get their silver foil bag to heat up our food.

UA EWR-TLV J no problem (a box of chochs for the crew didn't hurt)

LX JFK-ZRH J last week refused for hygiene reasons! Didn't help that they didn't have KSML, but ZRH-TLV next day no problem.

LX JFK-ZRH J this week, no problem. They just wanted me to open it so that they can see that it contains food & not something that would explode in the oven ;) I did so & rewrapped it.

Denied by purser on UA ewr-zrh

Claimed UA is forbidden to warm up outside food for liability reasons
