Air India on Tuesday said the incidents of bed bug bites in its flights from the US were isolated ones but it had taken a "serious" view of the complaints and carried out an extensive service of the aircraft, including fumigation, as the airline continued to face flack from passengers.
Several business class passengers last week took to social media to vent out their anger over being bitten by bed bugs on the Newark-Mumbai flights. The incidents were reported on different days.
Disturbing images were posted on Twitter about the bedbugs crawling on the seats and bite marks all over a woman's hand.
