Dubai-based Emirates Airlines has announced its decision to discontinue the ‘Hindu meal’ option.
In an official statement, Emirates Airlines said the decision was taken following a review of the on-board products and services.
The statement read, “As part of our continuous review of the products and services available to customers, Emirates can confirm that it will discontinue the Hindu meal option. We constantly review our offering, taking into consideration customer uptake and feedback. This helps us improve service efficiencies.”
Although, the airline said that Hindu passengers would still have a variety of both vegetarian and non-vegetarian regionally-inspired meals to choose from.
Emirates also provides meal options that cater to a number of health and dietary requirements.
Other meal options for its vegetarian travellers include Vegetarian Jain Meal, Indian Vegetarian Meal and Kosher meal.
