Hey just a question: why do the strictly kosher meals for the haredim come out before the rest of the El Al plane gets their strictly kosher meals?
Is there a technical reason for this? Something to do with pre-heating? Or is it just plain favoritism, prejudice perhaps?
Why do the ultra-religious get their meals first? The black hats get theirs even before the others with knitted and colored kippas do. The latter get their meals when the rest of the secular plane gets its food.
Why can’t everyone get their meals at the same time? Anyone?
And especially on a flight from New York to Tel Aviv, two days before the High Holy Days, where more than half of the plane is ultra Orthodox? The stewardesses spend almost half an hour shuffling up and down the isles handing out glatt kosher meals while the rest of us salivate, and wait.
Most of the Haredim have finished their meals way before we are even served. Like this guy:
Is that the point? That they don’t eat with the non-glatt kosher folks? That their food doesn’t mix with our food? Can’t be. The meal I’m eventually served comes with a little note which says the meal is very strictly kosher.
There must be some perfectly logical explanation for this inequality. Anyone? I would ask the stewardesses here, but I’m afraid someone will hear. I don’t want to start a situation. The scent of the food is killing me. I’m so hungry.
The food sure smells good, but the situation stinks.
