KSML in Airlines throughout Asia Pacific

Hi all,

I was surprised today when a PEK-NRT ANA flight served BAC (Bangkok Air Catering) KSML.

Anyone knows who elses serves BAC KSMLs?

The BAC is frozen KSML which is much better than the very bad Stogel and Lanxner long lasting (preserved) meals.

I'm trying to map KSML food in Asia Pac, and when I expect a very bad meal I 'd usually order an FPML instead. This is what I've got so far:

CX - Hermolis on all HK origniated flights and most other flights.
SQ - Hermolis
NH - Hermolis and now BAC
TG - Used to be Stogel/Lanxner - any change?
VN - Lanxner ?

Anyone knows more? I'm about to take a long PR flight from NRT to MNL, and wonder should I try KSML or FPML.

Thanks in advance,
Shaul.

CX J served Hermolis on ex-BKK, HKG, and in the HKG lounge.
QF F served a rubbish BKK (Cantor) meal ex-HKG and ex-MEL they served a meal nearly as bad from Unger Catering I believe.

British Airways served a Bangkok Y class KSML (Kantor) in C Class PEK-LHR. Even that they butchered, as they unwrapped and unsealed the main meal befiore heating without asking me so I couldn't eat it, and even put the roll in the oven with the regular food so I couldn't eat that either.
It was worse than the ones you pictured from HKG - that was a C class one...

In the recent past I have had an excellent meal from Lewis's in QF C Class from Sydney, and a Y class Kantor meal QF C class BKK to SYD and BKK to LHR.

In the more distant past (1-4 years) I have had;

Stogel frozen SIN-FRA on LH F class
Stogel longlife BKK-FRA on LH C Class
Stogel longlife KUL-BKK-KUL on LH C Class
Stogel longlife BKK-KUL-BKK on TG C Class
Lewis frozen KUL-SYD on OS C Class
Bernholz (Vienna) fresh (!) MLE-VIE on OS C Class
Hermolis frozen (Y Class) BKK-LHR on TG F Class

Flying next week to SYD via HKG, fingers crossed for Hermolis

I don't know if it still relevant but I just flew TG MNL-BKK, BKK-HAN, HAN-BKK, BKK-CCU. All the flights had the same meal from Rabbi Kantor in BKK.

On the bright side AC switched back to Hermolis for HKG-YVR.
