Air India boss tells staff to carry their own bags

As Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led BJP government begins crackdown on VIP culture in the country, Air India Chairman and Managing Director Ashwani Lohani has reportedly told his staff to carry their own luggage.
According to a report in Moneycontrol, the senior officers of the national carrier received a WhatsApp message from their boss to carry their own bags.
Air India is doing away with the practice of having porters carry the hand baggage of its staff, the report said.
"In line with the PM's drive towards simplicity in public life let us to begin with shun the use of porters for carrying our hand baggage that our own hands should rightfully carry," read the message from Air India Chairman and Managing Director Ashwani Lohani.
Air India currently employs people who assist VIPs and airline staff. Porters carry luggage of senior airline staff from the entry gate to the boarding point.
