Chocate is Lindt, Ice cream is movenpick. Both are mostly kosher (not CY). Need to refer to kosher lists for kosher flavours, eg

http://www.icz.org/wcms/ftp//i/icz.o...iste_igfkl.pdf

Movenpick ice cream on page 41

Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse at LHR had kosher meals in the freezer which they heated up for the wife and I.

Does anyone know about British Airways JFK club or first lounges? Wife and I are flying CX out of there soon. We will probably just go out to eat, but useful to know in case of travel delays.

British Airways does have the option available, and I note that you've already seen/replied to the thread that FF put up about it

This is the new kosher list of Zrich - there's no kosher ice cream in the Airport nor in Zrich - only those in the kosher shop

That is the Haredi kosher list, which require Halav Yisroel - hence ice cream only in kosher shop.
The non Haredi list is here

http://www.icz.org.cms.worldsoft-cms...scherliste.pdf

On page 9 Movenpick ice cream (most flavours) are included. You buy them everywhere. However, they only have them in lounge in Summer months (for many years). Start late May through to September I think, someone always posts in the LX board when they have been spotted...

Does anyone know what I would receive for breakfast at LHR T5 in GC and GF? Will they give the same sandwich and soup in GC and same meals in GF for breakfast? (My flight leaves 07:00)

You should get a hot Hermolis breakfast in Galleries First (Omelette / baked beans / grilled tomato / sauted potatoes / mushrooms). If you prefer they can give you one of the lunch / dinner meals (Grilled Salmon / Spaghetti and meatballs / Stir Fried Chicken) if your body clock wants it!

No need for this any more - they keep a stock on hand, and you can't pre-order with them now (personal experience of this over the past few months)

No, I recently (before Peach) also had a choice of mushroom soup and a rather delicious salt beef sandwich.
