Air India said on Tuesday it has revised its alcohol policy following the row over the urinating incident on its New York-New Delhi flight last November.
The CEO of Tata Group-owned Air India, Campbell Wilson, had stated earlier this month that the company is reviewing its policy on serving alcohol on flights. The airline is reviewing its “in-flight serving alcohol policy,” he had said without elaborating.
In a statement from an Air India spokesperson, it stated: “We have reviewed our existing in-flight alcohol service policy based on the practice of other airlines and input from the US National Restaurants Association guidelines.”
“These were largely in line with Air India’s existing practice, although some adjustments were made for greater clarity, and the NRA’s traffic light system was added to help the crew recognize and manage potential instances of intoxication.
The new policy has now been announced to the crew and incorporated into the training curriculum, the statement said
“Air India remains committed to the safety and well-being of our passengers and cabin crew, including but not limited to the responsible serving of alcohol,” it added.
