Air India begins nonstop service from Dullest to New Delhi

Air India begins nonstop service from Dullest to New Delhi”

"Air India has taken a conscious decision not to have non-veg in economy class on its domestic flights to reduce wastage, cost and improve the catering service", an Air India spokesperson said. However, the state-owned airline will continue to offer non-vegetarian foods for its global passengers in economy class.

The recent decision by the Air India management is unlikely to go down well with the flyers.

The national carrier has stopped serving non-vegetarian food in the economy class for all flights in the domestic sector with immediate effect.

The decision of cost cutting has come at a time when the government is considering stake sale in Air India whose debt burden has piled up to Rs 50,000 crore.

Starting on the July 8, 2017, Air India will fly its new flight Air India 104 connecting Washington with Hyderabad via Delhi with three services per week.

Airline sources said the move will also ensure that vegetarian and non-vegetarian food do not get mixed up. We have stopped serving non-vegetarian food in the economy class.

The official said half the number of passengers did not specify their meal preference at the time of booking.

Talks about privatisation Air India started with an interview where Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said that if private airlines could handle 86 per cent passengers then they could also handle 100 per cent. Air India's market share is just around 14 per cent. Six months ago, the airline had struck off non-vegetarian meals on domestic flights with only economy class flyers which have a flight duration of below 90 minutes. But it allowed the passengers to opt for either vegetarian or non-vegetarian meals on all domestic flights exceeding 90 minutes.
