On Wednesday, Air India has decided to serve a special low-fat meal for pilots and cabin crew. A letter from the national carrier reads: “Taking into consideration the health factor of the crew, an initiative has been taken by the Director (Operations) to revise the in-flight food menu for the crew members. In view of the above, special low-fat diet meal crew has been worked out on a day-wise basis in order to provide light and healthy meal with a home (Indian) touch.”
It further states that “as per GM catering initially the changed menu will be introduced only on Ex- Delhi/Mumbai flights September 15 midnight on all domestic and international flights.”
Taking note of the health of cabin crew, the letter reads: “The above same low diet food is applicable for all flying crew i.e., cockpit (pilot) and cabin crew.”
The initiative was taken days after PM Modi has introduced the “Fit India” Movement.
