kosher in T5 for BA 1st

I am traveling in BA first, was wondering do the BA lounges have kosher food available, or just the regular snacks and look for hechsher?

mhron - I have no idea, but you may want to ask a moderator to move your question to the BA Forum, which may well bring an answer.

Concensus seems to be that something is available -see

Kosher in T5

and

Kosher in BA Concorde/First lounge

The only place I have definitely see it available is in the LH first class terminal in Frankfurt (and Munich equivalent) - ate at both of these last week.

mhron,

My first question is, are you flying F or B, as BA has separate lounges. I don't remember seeing kosher food on B lounge. Can't comment on F lounge as I don't fly F. Though as I understand you can buy pre-packaged kosher sandwiches from a kosher caterer called Adafina at Cafe Nero.

You didnt "luck out". Kosher is now available on request at all South lounges and the Arrivals lounge at T5. They normally need approx 20 mins to heat up and prepare.

Otherwise you can still eat:
Some of the biscuits are labeled OU(D)
The Kettle chips are kosher if labeled with KLBD at back (only salted and black pepper are kosher)
The cereals served are mostly Kellogs (approved by Manchester Beth Din)
