In my experience T1 has full meals available also on request - last week had omelette/potatoes/mushrooms etc for breakfast, and for dinner choice of meatballs and spaghetti, chinese chicken and rice or salmon and mashed potato. All very good (apart from omelette which I find inedible).

Also KSML available on request in CX lounge in Hong Kong, QF F lounge in Sydney and SQ Private Room in Singapore. All must be requested in advance.

I was most surprised to find kosher sandwiches and snacks in the lounge at Warsaw. All dairy (which was a shame). Available on their own shelf in the food chiller cabinet!

Amex Centurion lounge in LAS has KSML catered by Haifa Restaurant. I haven't tried them but i'm sure others here have and can be more informative on this.

QF F in MEL was a no-go for me.
Who do you contact for QF F in SYD?

JFK Terminal 4 - Virgin Clubhouse now has kosher meals available. When I was there recently, they had 3 options - meatballs, lasagne, and a fish dish.
They usually carry a small selection in the kitchen, which just need to be heated up.

From my experience there, I wouldn't go so far as to term it excellent...more decent/good. Then again, it may have just been that day - YMMV

To clarify situation regarding Quantas F in SYD (currently sitting here, and just spoke with the F&B manager).

They can provide kosher meals (from Lewis), but these need to be ordered a minimum of 3-4 days in advance, preferably a week though.
To do this, you'll need to call through to the lounge directly (or call general CS and asked to be put through to the F lounge), and then let them know.

Hope this helps!
