You may or may not know that on most international flights you can order a special meal. There are a few options, including but not limited to vegetarian, asian, no-dairy, vegetarian no-dairy, gluten-free etc. One of the options is “Kosher” which I made the habit of ordering because: 1). I can 2). food is of better quality and healthier. Drawback: not sure how exactly does that add to my already terrible carbon footprint record.
I just checked in a Delta flight to NYC. Strangely enough from JFK to Moscow I could order Kosher, but not from Moscow to JFK where Muslim seem the only special meal option.
That raises the following questions:
- Can you safely assume that one can anticipate to convert to Judaism within a week in New York?
- Or is it because you are a product of a mixed marriage. In that case, do you eat kosher style pork? Possibly not, unless you raised progressively and the pork is grass-fed free range.
- What would the Gaza Strip inhabitants think about Delta meal option choices on return flights?
Meanwhile, try the special meals before they take them off the menu as unnecessary logistically-challenging luxury. It’s under “Request special services” and so far I had with Delta, KLM, Air France and Aeroflot, approved, with all due respect, by the appropriate rabbi.
