Emirates reverses decision, to continue with 'Hindu meals'

New Delhi: Emirates on Wednesday reversed its decision of discontinuing “Hindu meals+ ” from its flights after receiving flak from social media users in India.
The Dubai-based carrier had earlier this week said it will drop “Hindu meals” from food options while continuing to offer both veg and non-veg meals in conformity with religious beliefs of Indians. But social media users expressed strong opposition to this move, forcing Emirates — the largest foreign airline in India in terms of flying people in and out of the country — to cancel its decision.
“Based on feedback from our customers, Emirates confirms we will continue to provide a Hindu meal option, to make it easier for our Hindu customers to identify and request this option,” the airline said in a statement late Wednesday evening.
