Hotels have been in the news in recent years for having bed bugs, but airplanes might not be much safer. Passengers on different flights from Newark recently encountered these pests while they were seated in planes.
Bed Bugs on Board
Bed bugs made their way onto separate Air India flights that left from Newark. Passengers reported finding these bugs crawling out of seats and being bitten. In fact, a baby on one of these flights ended up with several bites. Bed bugs haven’t been reported on other flights in the NJ area so far, but it’s good to be aware of those incidents that have occurred. The airline issued a formal apology and used a repellent on the seats, but passengers have said it wasn’t enough to stop these pests.
