Veg-Only For Economy Fliers In India ‘To Cut Wastage’, Says Air India

Veg-Only For Economy Fliers In India ‘To Cut Wastage’, Says Air India

Veg-Only For Economy Fliers In India ‘To Cut Wastage’, Says Air India

NEW DELHI: Air India’s inexpensive domestic passengers are “aboard a strictly vegetarian food offer” because the airline decided to serve only vegetarian meals for travelers in the economy.

The airline, however, continue to offer a choice of vegetarians and non-vegetarians for its business class passengers.

The latest decision seems to be an extension of an earlier decision to serve vegetarian meals only on short flights.

A statement from the airline said: “Air India has made a conscious decision not to have non-vegetarian meals in tourist class on domestic flights to reduce waste, reduce costs and improve catering service.”

By December 2015, the company had introduced “unique vegetarian meals for flights that last less than 90 minutes” to reduce pressure on cabin crew.

“For very short flights like a 45-minute flight, there is little time to serve, then we offer boxes for sale.

But even for a flight of one hour, if you take the time shortly after takeoff or before landing, the cabin crew is only about 30 minutes. When is the time to ask the election? “Said a senior Air India who declined to be identified.

The official explained that the current decision was made mainly to reduce costs and waste.

“We looked at the issue and found that people are very health conscious and many prefer to eat plants in non-vegetarian foods. As a result, many non-vegetarian foods are lost,” the official said.

Although the company has not officially shared the amount it spends providing non-vegetarian dishes to its passengers, the airline’s chief said he spends about 8 million rupees a year to offer the non-vegetarian food option.

Reducing costs has been a priority for airline management, since the Modi government is looking for a potential buyer to sell the troubled airline has a debt of more than Rs. 52 billion rupees.

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley heads an expert committee that handles airline departure terms.
