United has long been a holdout on serving kosher wine in business class between North America and Tel Aviv.
They tried serving Covenant Mensch in 2017, but United tells me that the wine did not have many takers and it was discontinued.
United did continue to serve kosher wines in select Polaris lounges.
Effective February 1st though, United will try again. I’m told that kosher wines will be available in both directions between San Francisco or Newark and Tel Aviv. Alas, it apparently won’t be available between Washington DC and Tel Aviv.
Kosher wine is available in the business class cabin only.
So if you’re flying United Polaris as of 2/1, be sure to have a L’Chaim on some kosher wine and tell United that you appreciate the gesture 🙂
