In November 2015, the complaints regarding the food quality did not account for even three percent of the total 252 complaints received by the Government-run airline during that period, according to the data given by Minister of State for Civil Aviation Mahesh Sharma.

As per record, a total of 252 complaints were received in November last year on the domestic network of Air India and out of these complaints only six were related to quality of meals, Sharma said in a written reply.

The minister, in his reply, also said that punitive action is taken, based on the gravity of complaints after they are received.

Air India uplifts in-flight meals from reputed caterers, who also cater to other international and domestic airlines, Sharma said adding, surprised meat checks are carried out at the airline's premises to monitor uplift of meals with regard to quality, quantity, taste and presentation.
