The warning note titled 'A buffet is not a takeaway', was sent on Monday by an assistant general manager (AGM) of the in-flight service department, reports The Times of India.

According to the report, the note read: "We have received an unfortunate email from the management of hotel in London stating that some AI crew members regularly come down for breakfast with empty boxes into which they fill food items from the buffet, presumably to eat later."

According to an India Today report, the note warned that even though the airlines is aware that it is a small minority which is indulging in such behaviour, it would take serious disciplinary action against the offenders.
