"special kosher" out of tlv

I know that there is always a fiasco when flying out of tlv in regard to kosher meals. Many of the airlines offer kosher and also glatt or special kosher, the problem is that most of the customer service reps out of israel are unaware of this, so it leads to a fiasco on board. Anyway, i will be flying on delta out of tlv, does anyone know if they went the way of CO. by offering only "Special Kosher" or do they offer both. If they offer both anyone have the customer service rep # in Israel so i can call them and ensure I get a glatt meal.
Thanks

that was my my understanding as well. As I thought they closed up the airport kitchen.

then I thought LY as well was using that awful caterer with the Eida from Netanya as well.

Not correct. I know that BA use the other supplier (airport kitchen) for KSML in business and first - economy is SKML, and SKML can be provided for C and F on request. LH use the airport kitchen for KSML in F.

I am not sure about others.
