Veg Airline Employees

Employees of Air India decide to go vegetarian in a bid to keep the airline from folding.

For Air India employees, the price of eating meat is literally too high. The airline, based in Dehli, currently serves its employees chicken and fish at least three times a week, which cost more compared to the all-veggie meals offered on alternate days. In an effort to save money, most of the 1,100 employees that dine on the airline's dime have suggested that an all-vegetarian menu may be the answer. Air India union leaders say management has been very receptive to the employee decision. While agreed on by the majority, some employees have expressed disdain for the cost-saving measure. Currently, at least 200 pounds of chicken is eaten by the airline's staff every week.
