Cockroach Invades Air India's VIP Lounge

Air India took some serious heat on social media this week after a journalist photographed a cockroach on her plate at the airline's business class lounge in Delhi.

Harinder Baweja tweeted the "disgusting" discovery to her 37,000-plus followers, prompting a quick response from India's flag carrier.
The airline apologized for the insect and said "corrective measures" were being taken immediately.
Unsurprisingly, Baweja's post also garnered responses from fellow Twitter users, including one claiming to have found a cockroach on his Air India flight from Dubai to Delhi.
In October, dozens of German cockroaches were found aboard a pair of planes bound for Kunming, China, leading pest control experts at Kunming Changshui International Airport to fumigate both aircraft cabins.

That same month, a mother and daughter found bed bugs on their seats during a British Airways flight from Vancouver to London.
