Meals on Newark to Tel Aviv flights will feature an entirely new menu including such gastronomical delights as fresh bagels, cheese omelets, blintzes, chicken marsala, a kale quinoa burger, and bakery items like rugelach and black and white cookies. Younger passengers can also testing a new menu for its youngest passengers, introducing a kosher kids’ menu on US to Israel flights. New beverage options will include kosher wines and regular and decaffeinated coffee. United will also be upgrading their kosher snacks selections, with several varieties of potato chips, crackers, and nuts being added.

Part of the kosher expansion includes the airport experience where United is testing the addition of a hot kosher a la carte meal option in the Newark Polaris Lounge to complement the already featured kosher wines. Additionally, at both the Polaris lounge and United Clubs in Newark and LaGuardia Airports the offerings will include kosher packaged snacks upon request.

We will continue to embrace suggestions as well as seek out ways to create the best possible onboard dining experience for everyone we proudly serve.”
