Rat takes a ride on Air India



Rat takes a ride on Air India


An Air India plane was forced to return to New Delhi two hours into a flight to Milan yesterday after a “suspected rat sighting'' in the cabin.

The airline said no rodent had been found, but it had no choice but to turn back and fumigate the aircraft after the report.
“[The Dreamliner flight] AI 123... returned to Delhi due to [a] suspected rat sighting,'' an airline official told AFP.
“The presence of the rodent was not confirmed, but keeping passenger safety in mind, the aircraft was brought back.''
Rats pose a serious threat to the safety of flights as they can chew through wires and damage internal controls.
An Air India domestic flight was reportedly grounded in May in the northern town of Leh after crew spotted rats scurrying around the plane. 
Another plane was grounded at Delhi airport last August when staff complained of a rat infestation.
