So true & of course one does not get caviar, soup, fresh scrambled eggs, vintage champagne etc etc etc in J either. Some people just like to complain, & espouse what "the pack" say/do, rather than enjoying today's pleasures for what they are!

umm- no!
Eg: Tried the J salad?

all of us on here know what cx catering is like- but they still do manage a reasonable bit of differentiation among the cabins!
(Making the ISM smuggled goodies from up front atleast a tad valuable when you’re in the back)

I don't care about any "pack." My comment was based on flying CX F for either two or three roundtrips from BOS/JFK-BKK for seven or eight years starting around 2008. IMO, other than the bed, in which I sleep better than I do in my own bed at home, CX F is no longer an industry leader in F. In fact, I usually prefer to fly QR J on my route. It's cheaper (regardless of whether one is paying with cash or miles), and surpasses CX F in most regards.

Order a special meal. Kosher meals are outsourced from what I understand.

Well according to CX's website:
* All meals on flights to and from Indonesia, Malaysia, Maldives, Middle East and Pakistan are prepared according to the Halal method.
Maybe that needs updating now that TLV has been added?

(Although the major difference between Halal and Kosher seems to be the religion of the person who did the killing; otherwise the rules are pretty similar, and made perfect sense when living in a hot place in the days before refrigeration. These days...)

Thanks very much.
Although there was an article from CPCS (back in 2001) suggesting they have KSML kitchen in HKG, catering for EL AL flights only. CX may use the same kitchen for TLV flights?

Quoting myself here... I was incorrect. CPCS has the main kitchen to prepare normal food, and then has two separate kitchens(!) for halal and kosher food. If they have to have kosher food then they have to order it.
