Partnering with kosher fresh food provider Fresko, meals on the Newark to Tel Aviv flight will feature an entirely new menu. Options will include dishes such as fresh bagels, cheese omelet, blintzes, chicken marsala, a kale quinoa burger, and traditional bakery items like rugelach and black and white cookies.


As part of the introduction of these new dining options, United is also testing a menu offering for kids – a Kosher child’s meal in all cabins between Tel Aviv (TLV), and Newark (EWR) / San Francisco (SFO). If the testing is successful, the airline will roll out the meal selection on additional Tel Aviv routes.

For customers traveling in Polaris and United Premium Plus, additional dining enhancements can be found in the all Kosher snack choices for mid-flight enjoyment. The new offerings include Deep River Potato Chips, Cheez-It® crackers, Drizzilicious Cinnamon Swirl crisps, Madi K’s Almonds and M&M’S®.


New Kosher wines provided by Royal Wine, including Herzog Lineage Cabernet Sauvignon and Herzog Lineage Sauvignon Blanc throughout the Polaris cabin.

Additionally, building on the airline’s partnership with Illy coffee, United is upgrading its Kosher coffee to provide both regular and decaf Illy coffee within all cabins over the next several months.


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