In a bizarre incident, take off of a London-bound Air India flight was aborted after ants were found inside the plane.
According to news agency ANI, the ants were found inside the business class of AI-111.
Prince of Bhutan was on board.
The aircraft was changed later.
A few months ago, an Air India flight to Newark in the US had to return to the Delhi airport after cabin crew spotted a bat's carcass inside the business class area of the plane merely half an hour after take off. No one had noticed the carcass before the take off.
The cabin crew members saw the carcass in the eighth row, which is in the business class area of the plane, and informed the pilots. The pilot then informed the air traffic controller (ATC) about the carcass and the plane was turned back.
