you could see if kosher meals are closer to halal standards. most airlines seem to offer them, tho from my experience, they aren't very tasty. i usally just bring a lot of foods i know i can eat, since i can't always find food that fits my needs.
Programs: HHonors - Diamond; Priority Club - Spire; AS - Gold
This reminds me of friends who are devout Hindus who were told that only the beef was left. When they expressed shall we say ... disappointment, the FA's attitude seemed to be that they were being "picky". The trip had been organized at a late hour; they were unable to pre-order special meals.

That is quite an unacceptable attitude to take. Aren't FAs supposed to be sensitive to different cultures and religions?
im kinda confused, seems the OP asked a question yet from the post of the OPs just above he knew the answer, if so why did the OP ask the question??
I don't understand your confusion. He knows of maybe six airlines, all from Muslim countries, that serve Halal meals as a matter of course. I wouldn't call a list of six "the answer"! There have to be more than six - and hopefully there will also be some airlines from non-Muslim countries that actually understand the concept of Halal and don't just think it means "no pork"
I've had Muslim meals on United transcon flights and they've all been vegetarian. Typically rice and potatoes with habshi halwa for dessert. Not bad, and not serving halal meat probably keeps costs down.
Fresh fruits and vegetables, yogurt, nuts, rice, corn, pasta, eggs, herbs and spices, cheese and dairy products, dried beans and peas. If locally available, poultry is slaughtered according to the specified Halal methods.
I've had them too (including chicken out of ORD)... Not bad on UA. (And no, the couple of times I've had them, I didn't get SSSS'd!)
