Does anyone know which kashrus the Delta JFK direct to Tel Aviv flight uses? Also, the return flight back to JFK?

None. They serve treif, in both directions.

He probably wants to know what hashgacha is the “kosher meal” underDecember 21, 2018 1:31 pm at 1:31 pm #1649132The FrumguyParticipant
Yes, Mr. Addict. Exactly.December 21, 2018 1:41 pm at 1:41 pm #1649142
Is it only me, or has airline food gone from fairly tolerable to almost dog food ?
Just by looking through the cellophane covering, it seems that the non-kosher trays might be just as bad, since the servings look similar to me. There’s a particular deli/Kiddush making/ takeout / company who’s pretty much a household name in the NY/NJ/CT. area who should be ashamed of themselves, but they’re not the only one.December 21, 2018 1:58 pm at 1:58 pm #1649151
Sorry, typo…. ” similar to mine”December 22, 2018 5:56 pm at 5:56 pm #1649179BaltimoreMavenParticipant
Frumguy please request this information on Dan’s deals. United has Glatt kosher both ways from reputable Hashgochas.December 22, 2018 5:57 pm at 5:57 pm #1649180GadolhadorahParticipant
Delta, like all the other major commercial carriers that offer “kosher” meals, does not publicly disclose the source of its “kosher” meals for particular flights. The sourcing for such meals is decided by the catering contractor for each airline and uses different criteria, primarily economic (although business/first class passengers get a much higher level meal) Flights from airline hubs may have a wider range of options and almost always, fresher (frozen) meals. The meals themselves will typically have a label clearly providing the hashgacha but good luck calling either the airline and/or the local flight services ops center and asking for the name of the rav hamachshir.December 22, 2018 6:01 pm at 6:01 pm #1649201Mariana SantosParticipant
It’s not just you. Airline food has gone the same way as hospitals trying to make budget have gone, food that does nothing for your well being, food for the sake of saying compliance to regulation, food that has one heck of a nerve to even call itself food. I put an end to the farcical bait and switch notion of an acceptable airline meal the day I was on a flight to Portugal and the meal was curried chicken on a bed of the sickest, white rice you have ever seen. This for a plane load of people, many of whom were elderly, that wouldn’t have recognized a curried anything even if it walked up to them and introduced itself. Now I just pack a picnic lunch worthy of the title “food” with enough to share with the people around me whenever I have to fly.December 22, 2018 8:17 pm at 8:17 pm #1649311
Flying used to be fun , exciting. No more… Get there early, security, lousy food, tighter seats, extra fee for carrying a toothpick, smaller overhead bins. My relative, who’s afraid of flying, now has 5 more excuses not to fly.December 22, 2018 9:12 pm at 9:12 pm #1649254avreimiParticipant
I flew from Tel Aviv to JFK on Delta [in Econonmy] a few weeks ago and the food was Hamasbia with a hechsher of the Eida Charedis. Throughout the night [this flight is a red eye] kosher snacks were available. The Tuna rolls were also Eida [Parev] whilst the packaged snacks had an OU-D hechsher. I do not know if that is what they usually have but I imagine so.December 22, 2018 9:12 pm at 9:12 pm #1649317GadolhadorahParticipant
Ziongate: You cite the treife “curried chicken” as one reason not to fly. What are the other four? ”
P.S. How does your “relative” get from Lakewood to Lisbon if he/she doesn’t fly? I checked the Monsey Trail website and they have no scheduled bus service to Portugal.December 22, 2018 10:32 pm at 10:32 pm #1649333

Why are people implying the kosher food isn’t kosher by putting kosher in quotation marks?December 24, 2018 3:37 pm at 3:37 pm #1650656👑RebYidd23Participant
Airlines have been deliberately trying to make the experience of flying as unpleasant as possible so that passengers want to upgrade.
