Flight Attendants Sizewize at Air India Effective

Air India has first grounded and now fired 10 FFAs.

Its rules on size/weight that is applied to its Flight Attendants have been upheld by the Indian High Court in Delhi.

So after refusing a ground assignment - the National Airline of India fired the 10.

So clearly they are trying to make sure that their flights are as fuel efficient as possible and not carrying unnecessary surplus weight.

Could there be other airlines who have similar rules but have not enforced them? When oil was $148 pbl that was an issue. At $50 pbl not so much
