Bed Bugs Have Just Been Found On A Business Class Flight & You Should Be Afraid

Would you like a rash with your Chardonnay?

Here’s some scary news that should make your next trip a very uncomfortable one.

Bed bugs were recently found on the business class seats of an Air India flight from Newark Liberty International Airport in the U.S to India.

Reports from Fox5NY joined outraged business class passengers who took to Twitter to express their anger and disgust at the airline. The passengers revealed that their seats were infested with bed bugs, causing them to have “bites all over their body” once they landed.

Whilst some may argue that it’s an isolated case since they’d probably never travel to India, there’s still the concern of how the bed bugs got there in the first place and whether or not they’re in the airport (likely).

Another major question raised is how often these plane seats get cleaned.

Here are some disturbing images from passengers on board.

And the aftermath…

One passenger even raised a good point after his children were fed to the blood sucking critters.

Kashmira Tonsekar who was a passenger on the flight told The Hindustan Times that they had alerted the crew of the situation who then sprayed a repellant.

“After a while, more bugs started coming out from that and other seats.”

Air India have since come out to address the issue via a statement saying that it is “deeply concerned with a few reports of ‘bugs’ causing inconvenience to its esteemed passengers”.

“The issue has been viewed seriously and every possible step is being taken to closely inspect and further strengthen our system at every level to ensure that such isolated incidents of passenger discomfiture do not affect our consistent performance.”

Does this bode well with your faith in business class? Let us know.
