National carrier Air India will be saving around Rs 8-10 crore annually through its decision to discontinue non-vegetarian meals in the economy class on domestic flights, Parliament was told on Tuesday. “Non-vegetarian meal has been discontinued only in the economy class of domestic sector flights of Air India. This was started to save costs, reduce wastage, improve service and also to avoid any chances of the mix-up of meals,” Minister of State for Civil Aviation Jayant Sinha told the Rajya Sabha in a written reply. Various measures like the change in menu, meal schedules, rationalisation of dry stores and ancillary items as per current trends have been taken for cost cutting which will save Air India around Rs 20 crore annually, he added.
