Bailout grieved Air India buys crockery worth 12 Crore
As per the notice issued by the airline's Deputy General Manager (in-flight services) on May 29, the new features were introduced in flights plying on the Mumbai-Delhi route from June 1 and are to be extended on other flights also.
The existing crockery would be sold off as scrap.
The airline had last purchased crockery in 2007 for Rs 15 crore for the newly acquired Boeing 747 and 777 long range fleet, which was never used as it did not fit in the oven. V Tulsidas was the chairman then.
"The microwave too lay useless because the crockery had gold plating," said a senior cabin crew member with the airline.
The airline had also bought expensive mugs to serve tea which too lie useless as very few fliers like to have tea in mugs.
Despite projected losses of Rs 5,000 crore, Air India also introduced new uniforms for its staff from this month.
An official Air India spokesperson said that the airline would revert with an explanation, but failed to specify the time.
