Air India Passenger finds ‘fly’ in meal


New Delhi: A ‘Housefly was reportedly found in an Air India Flight by a passenger in the meal which was served to him during the journey although the airline has claimed that that no sample of the food item was submitted to it for verifying the claim. The incident took place on Saturday on the airline’s flight from Kathmandu to Kolkata.

Air India said that since the sample of the food was not provided for examination, the claim cannot be verified.

The National Carrier in statement said, “AI clarifies that the incident about an ‘insect’ in the meal was brought to our notice by a passenger of KTM-CCU flight. However, upon request to examine, the food sample was not shared or returned to us for us to examine or investigate. We are thus not able to confirm the veracity of the claim being made.”

“AI follows laid down procedures on such complaints and, hence, it was imperative to have the specimen for us to investigate,” it added.
