NEW DELHI: Air India said yesterday an investigation was underway after a passenger found worms in his sandwich mid-flight.
The passenger made the discovery during a flight from New York to New Delhi on September 28 on India’s struggling flagship carrier.
The passenger reported the incident to Air India, but said he did not hear anything back for two weeks, according to the Press Trust of India.
“We are investigating the caterer regarding this incident,” airline spokesman Prasad Rao said in New Delhi.
The airline has been hit by a string of issues, including over safety. In May, a flight to Bangalore was diverted to another city after the pilot returned from a toilet break and found the door to the cockpit jammed shut.
Air India also this year suspended a senior pilot caught drunk just before he was to fly a passenger aircraft.AFP
