“On my @airindia flight AI582, I was served a veg meal with chicken pieces in it! I boarded the flight from Calicut airport.

She further added, “When I informed the cabin supervisor (Sona), she apologized and informed me that there was more than one complaint about the same issue other than me and my friend. However, after I informed the crew, there was no action taken to inform other passengers having vegetarian meals.”

Air India also took to the comments section of the post and reacted to it. They wrote, “Dear Ms Jain, we request you delete the asked details from the open tweet ( to avoid misuse ) and share the same with us via DM ( ) along with your PNR.”

Here’s how others reacted to it:

An individual wrote, “Serving non-vegetarian food labelled as vegetarian goes against our cultural values and is highly unacceptable. Urgent action is requested to address and rectify this issue.”

A second added, “It is a highly condemnable act! The catering service provider should be held accountable. Next time no vegetarian person would dare to eat! Thank you for raising the issue.”

“This is disappointing, to say the least @airindia, she should be compensated and apologized by your team,” posted a third.
