Air India decision on non-veg food comes under Par panel lens

Thursday, July 13, 2017

A Parliamentary panel yesterday raised concerns over Air India's decision to stop serving non- vegetarian food to economy class passengers on domestic flights and would seek an explanation from the airline on the measure.

The matter was discussed at the meeting of the department-related Parliamentary Standing Committee on Transport, Tourism and Culture yesterday.

"The issue of Air India deciding not to serve non- vegetarian food for economy class passengers on its domestic flights was raised during the meeting today," panel member and Congress leader K C Venugopal said.

"The panel will seek an explanation from Air India as to on what basis such a decision was taken," he told PTI after the meeting.

Venugopal had also served as minister of state for civil aviation in the previous UPA regime. As part of cost cutting measures, loss-making Air India has stopped serving non-vegetarian food to passengers travelling in the economy class on its domestic flights.

The panel which was also to discuss the Air India disinvestment matter yesterday did not take up the issue as government officials concerned did not turn up. Senior officials from civil aviation and finance ministries as well as from the airline were asked by the panel to explain the decision to sell stake in Air India.
