Air India sacks 10 overweight air-hostesses

The domestic carrier Air India has sacked ten air-hostesses as they were 'over weight'. The sudden decision has left the hostesses fuming and they plan to drag the Air India to the court.

The Air India has confirmed that the 10 women staffers have been retrenched. Its spokesperson said that the decision was in sync with the terms and conditions of the services.

The national carrier said that adequate time was given to the hostesses to shed their extra kilos but they failed to lose weight and there was no alternative as they refused to join the ground staff either.

The air-hostesses now plan to fight against the Air India. Their lawyer has said that the decision was unjust and the case would be taken to the Supreme Court very soon.
