Air India Flight Turns Back After Rat Spotted On Board

A plane travelling from Mumbai to London was forced to turn
back mid-flight after a rat was spotted on board. Flight AI 131 travelling to
London on Wednesday was flying over Iran when someone on board said they
spotted the rodent, reports said.
Passengers continued their journey on a replacement aircraft
some time later.
Air India has said that the plane will be fumigated and the
presence of a rodent was being investigated. Rats occasionally get on board
aircraft along with catering and other supplies but can pose a serious
technical as well as a health hazard if they chew through wires.

The airline said that “though the presence of the
rodent was not confirmed,” the decision to abort the flight was
precautionary and in the interests of passenger safety.
