    Care with Star K and Pas Yisroel

    Care needs to be taken with Star-K Pas Yisroel. They often rely on the light bulb heter for Pas Yisroel.

    You should ask your Rov as to whether Star-K Pas Yisroel is acceptable.

    Col customer service

    I think col needs to open a customer service line. Every time they post a news story people comment with questions directed at the company or org that the story is about. Attn people: col is a news website they are not the customer service nor the the hashgocho for this particular business. If you keep kosher than you do your research to see if you like star k or not and google the business for business questions

    Kashrut

    This is absolutely wonderful news for the Global Jewish Community, it allows people an option to be able to eat a hearty kosher meal in the airport or on the plane. Readers should be happy about kosher going mainstream, and not impose their own restrictions (some of which have no basis at all) to the rest of the population. Star-K being not reliable? seriously? and lets look at the greater good that this brings, not concerning about Pas Yisroel or not. We Lubavitchers need to see what this does for the Jews overall, and find out the answers to your… Read more »

    All airport food is expensive, but the kosher items are not more expensive than the equivalent treife ones.

    so totally agree with knocking the naysayers to mini mice.

    so agree with 15 & 16 and above those – some of you really really need to come out from mommys basement and smell the fresh air.

    Lubavitcher shechita is a myth

    There is no chabad source for lubavitcher shechita. Chassidim can eat from any shochet who is a yerei shamayim.

    as we’re already discussing kosher meals at airports which is a great plus for all of us who have been waiting for this to happen,

    Think of all the Jews who might buy this kosher food, just b/c it’s packaged nicely and looks “interesting,” and thereby get kosher food into them!! YEAH!!! This is all such great news! I pray the food stays fresh and that this venture is a great success.

    Each person will do as s/he chooses. People who use only Lubavitch hashgocho still have pareve and dairy choices.

    VERY pricey!

    I think this is for the very rich and very starving only.
    My husband recently needed to buy a pareve sandwich and it was around $14!!!!!

    For all the kvetchers: Apples are kosher even on Pesach!

    Awesome! Thanks to Fresko ...

    To all who complain about every issue available… Say thank u to the company for putting in the food into airport terminals… When I had a flight cancelation (was in airport for a total of 16hours)… I would pay every dollar to have a kosher meal… And yes… I paid for one apple 1.79
    Its not about the kosher companies that charge a lot.. It’s about the airport

    Travelers to Israel leave from Terminal B (ElAl) or C(United).

    I have visited the Fresko plant on several occasions formally & I found the Kashrut, quality & freshness impeccable. For those that are machmirin – well, as you well know that can be a lonely place – hatzlacha! For a stam halachic yid it is “ganz fein”!
