India: Jet Airways bans chicken meals on flights
Due to the bird flu outbreak, Jet Airways in India has
banned on chicken on flights. Most other airlines flying from Kolkata and
Guwahto have decided to serve only vegetarian meals.
â€œWe have not banned chicken as we procure it
from Mumbai,â€ said a senior Kingfisher Airlines official. To carry on serving
non-vegetarian passengers, Air India (AI) has changed the market for obtaining
â€œNow, chicken will be uploaded from Maharashtra, not Kolkata,â€
said an AI spokesperson.
However, Jet Airways has taken chicken off the
menu on flights originating from Kolkata, Guwahati, Bangkok and Dhaka - not
wanting to take any risks.
According to a spokesperson, â€œThese flights
will have vegetarian lunch and dinner. For strict non-vegetarians, there is lamb
and fish.â€For the latest news via email, click
