These Air India Flights Won't Serve Non-Veg!

Loss-making government-run Air India will not serve non-vegetarian food to its economy class passengers on flights upto 90 minutes duration January 1st onward. The national carrier has also decided to strike off both tea and coffee from its lunch and dinner menu.
As of now, Air India serves sandwich (both vegetarian and non-vegetarian) and cake on its flights, which are up to 90 minutes of duration. The same will modified from January 1, 2016 and replaced with "all vegetarian" hot meal, an airline circular said.
"It has been decided to provide all Indian vegetarian hot meals in economy class on all domestic sector flights between 61 and 90 minutes duration from January 1, 2016." the circular issued late last week said. Flights to most of the non-metro routes fall in this category. While Air India has defended the move saying it has upgraded the meals, a travel industry expert said the decision is unilateral.
However, according to travel industry expert Rajji Rai, the state-owned airline should have first carried out a passenger survey, which is an industry practice, before affecting any change in the menu.
