We constantly review our offering, taking into consideration customer uptake and feedback. This helps us improve service efficiencies,” the statement read.

The airlines further said that Hindu flyers can choose from the vegetarian and non-vegetarian meals and that Emirates will continue to serve its flyers with highest health and dietary requirements.
