Air India, India’s national carrier has announced that it will stop serving non-vegetarian meals to economy passengers ONLY ON DOMESTIC FLIGHTS – or only within India. One reason sited is cost savings as Air India is generating huge losses. But others could be that non-vegetarian food while being more expensive within India, need more care, refrigeration to avoid getting spoilt adds to more cost and risk. So the question is would they lose customers who get upset by this move or will it not make any difference?

Now India-Israel relations on all areas, especially in the defence arena continues to grow. India will purchase the latest ong-range surface-to-air missile (LRSAM) defense systems for four Indian navy ships worth hundreds of crores. This has a major “make in India” component with India’s Bharat Electronics Ltd. (BEL) and other companies.
