It happens only in India

When mosquitoes delayed an Air India flight!


Passengers of Air India flight AI054 to Kochi refused to fly as the aircraft was filled with an unbearable number of mosquitoes, which delayed the flight by almost two hours. This happened despite the Mumbai International Airport Ltd making efforts to fight the insect attack since two years.

After boarding the flight, which was scheduled to depart at 5.30 am, passengers complained of too many mosquitoes. The airline then asked all 121 of them to deboard the flight and sanitised it, reports Mid-Day.

“The passengers were asked to deboard and were seated in buses. The airline staff sprayed mosquito repellent in the plane,” said an MIAL official. The plane could finally take off at 7.20 am.

“Airport management and the municipality should take care of this. An airline can only spray repellents,” said an airline official.
