Who Does Gate Gourmet Presently Serve At JFK?

Sun Jul 14, 2013 8:16 pm

Yes, I know I have asked this before, but haven't actually gotten an answer. I know that at JFK, most of the U.S. airlines use LSG Sky Chefs, while most of the international airlines use Flying Food. The reason for Gate Gourmet's small presence at JFK is due to fact that their kitchen is located in Inwood, which is about 15 minutes from the airport without traffic (which is why DL dropped them several years ago).

So, does anyone know which airlines does Gate Gourmet presently cater at JFK?

I've tried emailing them in the past, and never got a response. As for calling them, I am a little concerned that they may ask me some weird questions such as asking what is my affiliation to the airline industry, or if I work for any airline or a rival catering company. I could perhaps try emailing again, however, I won't count on a response.

When your general manager is 900 miles away (in Saint Louis), that's a pretty good indication that it'll be tough to develop any business.

Just curious, what makes you so interested in the answer?

I'm just curious myself, considering JFK is a virtual duopoly between LSG Sky Chefs and Flying Food Group. I know Gate Gourmet had DL in the past, however, the contract was lost due to them failing to meet DL's performance standards since their kitchen is located in Inwood.
