(Scroll down for video) Air India announced that it decided to remove more than 100 flight attendants from its fleet of planes after they ignored warnings to lose weight.

130 flight attendants, mostly women, were removed this week, because their levels of body mass index (BMI) is above the company’s limit.

Last year, the company tested the BMI of 600 crew members, and several hundred were found to be obese or overweight.

They were warned to lose weight or be declared unfit to be a flight attendant. The employees were urged to change their diet and lifestyle.

However, 130 flight attendants ignored the company’s warning and remained overweight.
