Cockroach in Food Served at Air India Lounge, Airline Apologises

A passenger on Wednesday, 20 December, took to Twitter to complain about a cockroach on a food plate at Air India's lounge for premium passengers at the Delhi airport, forcing the airline to apologise.

"Dear @airindiain cockroaches on food plates at your Delhi Lounge for business and first class passengers. Disgusting," Harinder Baweja, a journalist by profession, tweeted along with a picture of a roach on her plate.

The airline apologised for the incident on the micro blogging site and said the catering services provider has been asked to take corrective measures.

Air India spokesperson GP Rao said that the caterer has been informed to take necessary steps, so that the same is not repeated, reported ANI.

An airline source said that Air India subsidiary Hotel Corporation of India, which manages Centaur group of hotels, provides catering services at its lounge.
