The national carrier has further lost its credibility after a passenger found a baby lizard in the food he was served. The incident took place on Thursday on Air India flight (AI 111) on Delhi-London sector. The incident happened immediately after the take off when meal was being served to the passengers onboard.

The passenger was shocked when he noticed a baby lizard stuck to bread in the meal tray.  When he spotted the lizard in the tray he started screaming out. The cabin crew offered to replace the meal but the passenger refused to touch anything.

“There was a lot of chaos in the flight after the lizard was spotted. The meal was wrapped in a cling film. Immediately after the meal was served the passenger noticed a lizard. After this incident most of the passengers refused to accept the in-flight meal,” said aviation sources.

After a lot of hue and cry in the flight, the passenger lodged a complaint with the AI office. While this is being treated as a matter of negligence from the national carrier there has been no one to comment on the issue from AI office.

Sources from the ministry reveal that this issue is being taken very seriously by the minister and strong actions will be taken against those responsible.

Aviation sources say that such incidents happen because the national carrier is under huge debt and struggling to make payments to the caterers.

Meanwhile, Air India has rubbished the reports that lizard was found in any of its passengers' meal tray.

“There is no truth in such reports. No complaint is registered with the cabin crew or station manager,” Air India's statement was quoted by a TV channel.
