Rat spotted on flight to UK
A FLIGHT heading for the UK from India had to turn back after a rat was seen on board, according to passengers.
Air India Flight AI 131 was heading to Heathrow Airport from Mumbai on December 30 when the rodent was spotted.
Staff were reportedly alerted while the plane was travelling over Iran. The plane turned back and a replacement was arranged for passengers while the plane was fumigated.
Rats have the ability to cause mechanical problems on flights by chewing through wires.
