Regular at T3, GC have frozen bagels and soup, the sandwich is good to take on board (as no kosher food on short haul BoB). GF have full (frozen) Hermolis meals.
CX lounge have kosher food but only for CX passengers traveling in J and F with pre-request. definitely worth a visit to CX as GC can get very busy at peak times.

Having just completed a trip to the USA traveling through JFK, LAX and MIA i visited each AA Flagship lounge in these locations and each time they told me 'we don't have any kosher meals'.
I sent an email to AA why they don't have kosher meals in their Flagship lounges/first dining in these locations, they responded the following;

Thank you for contacting Admirals Club Member Services. We appreciate the opportunity to respond to your inquiry and apologize for the delay.
I reached out to Admirals Club Management regarding our Kosher food offerings.
Kosher meals should be available in the Chicago (ORD), New York-JFK, and Miami Flagship Lounges starting next week. The LAX location within the next 3 weeks.


So lets hope it turns out this way and they start offering kosher meals in these locations.

Hermolis sandwiches hopefully available (assuming they haven't run out):WH Smith - T5Terminal 5 Departures (After Security)Opp Harrods 05:30-last departing flight+44(0)20 8283 5016
Better Hermolis options in BA lounges in T5A South if you're eligible for entry. It won't be possible to order food for delivery if you're staying airside.

Any of the BA lounges in T5A South. Concorde Room and Galleries First have hot Hermolis meals (full English breakfast / grilled salmon and maybe lamb chops / chicken stir fry) and Galleries (Club) lounge has smoked salmon and cream cheese bagels (and possibly also saltbeef) plus soup.

They also have paninis. You can go to all the BA lounges at LHR and get Kosher food. In Galleries First it is a plated meal whilst in the Galleries lounges it is usually given on a tray and is just a quick snack like a sarnie. I'll be in CCR tomorrow so hope there is good food....

Hi all

What is the situation re. Kosher food availability in BA lounges at JFK?

I have access to J lounge and will be on the 23:00 flight out so wondering if there is any KSML pre-flight dining option at all?

Does the J lounge even exist at the moment with the refurb going on?

Thanks

It's hit and miss at JFK. On rare occasions, they may have a sandwich which is inedible.

That's disappointing and somewhat surprising at JFK given how much kosher-consuming traffic there is and how kosher-friendly NYC is!

Have a look in he wiki. It speaks of calling and pre-booking a meal. Although, I don't seem to be able to find a phone number.

Thanks - I did see that but since it didn't specify Airline or Terminal I had no idea what it was referring to!

There was a sign at the DL JFK Skyclub that kosher meals were available on request. Anybody ever ask what is available?
