Air India does not operate domestically within India. They operate a fleet consisting of 15 747s, 3 A300s and 8 A310s on the international longhaul routes.

AI wins numerous awards for its inflight catering, especially in premium classes. I have a few trip reports here that go into AI's menu in detail. Email me if you are interested.
