Bed Bugs Infest Air India’s Mumbai-bound Flights From US


After a rodent, bedbugs allegedly infested Air India’s overseas flights as passengers in business class of Mumbai-bound aircraft from the US this week complained of the crawling insects which also bit an infant.

Yesterday, sources said a baby was allegedly bitten by the bed bugs on the Newark-Mumbai flight, leaving the other passengers agitated and delaying the flight’s onward journey to Delhi. Passengers of a flight on Tuesday from the US to Mumbai also allegedly had this unpleasant experience, and one of them tweeted about his ordeal.

“…Just arrived from New York on Air India 144 business class with family. All our seats infested with bed bugs.
