NEWS Air India to ground ‘fat’ cabin crew

India’s national carrier Air India is set to ground 125 “overweight” cabin crew members. An Air India official told the BBC that the order had been made on the basis of a document issued by the civil aviation authority last year. The airline had warned 600 of its crew to “shape up” last year, but 125 had not managed to maintain the required weight, the official said. The airline says however that the issue is not one of weight, but “fitness”.
