Maggots Drop Onto Unsuspecting Airline Passenger

Maggot infestation grounds US plane.  NineMSN.Au.  With video.

Maggots falling from an overhead luggage bin has stopped a US plane from taking off.

Passengers were horrified to see the larvae dropping onto an unsuspecting passenger as others began to panic and cause a commotion

911 fumigation call!  And indeed that is what eventually happened when the U.S. Airways flight from Atlanta to New York started dropping those creepy crawlies from a suitcase with rotten meat from the overhead bin. 

Next time you are on a plane, and the pleasant overhead announcement is made to “sit back, relax, and enjoy the flight,” don’t forget to take a peak overhead, just to make sure no critters jump down for a visit en route.

  1. What in the world was in that suitcase that caused it to be infested with maggots? Ugh! They didn’t notice it when they packed? I hate flying as it is…this is just gross.

  2. or…. that suitcase sat in the overhead- unnoticed- for long enough that the meat rotted. talk about unattended bags!
    Security! Clean up on aisle 3!

  3. The mere idea of a maggot dropping on your head during an airplane ride is really sick. Unattended bags versus squirreling away a hunk of rotting meat into the carry-on….. ICK!
