Air India stopped serving non-vegetarian meals to economy-class passengers on all domestic flights from mid-June this year. Air India Chairman and Managing Director Ashwani Lohani said that non-vegetarian meals would continue to be served in business and executive class on domestic as well as international flights.
The national carrier took the decision to cut wastage and cost and to avoid a mix-up of vegetarian with non-vegetarian meals. “It also eliminates the possibility of a mix-up: a non-veg meal getting served to a vegetarian passenger, as it had happened a few times in the past.”
“A full-service carrier like Air India should not resort to such a measure. Even a low-cost carrier gives the passengers their food options. Air India should have conducted a passenger survey before taking this drastic step, and it should immediately withdraw the decision,” said Mahesh Y Reddy, secretary-general of Air Passengers Association of India.
