“Chicken or vegetarian? We leave that choice to you,” was Vistara’s take in an apparent dig at Air India over its decision to not serve non-vegetarian meals to economy class passengers on domestic routes.
In a post on its Twitter handle, the full-service carrier announced that it will continue to allow passengers to relish the food of their choice.

“Vistara serves two vegetarian and non-vegetarian meal choices each in Business Class and options between vegetarian and non vegetarian in Economy and Premium Economy class. We serve a combination of everyday favourites, regional and international specials, in six meal cycles at a time,” according to the airline.
The Tata-Singapore Airlines joint venture also provides Starbucks coffee on all its flights.
Vistara’s announcement comes after the national carrier Air India said it will not be serving non-vegetarian meals to passengers travelling economy class on domestic routes in order to cut costs and prevent wastage.
Air India Chairman and Managing Director Ashwani Lohani also said that the airline will be taking more such steps in future to reduce its expenses, including in the catering department.
