Cockroaches in Coach
Passengers on flights to Kunming, China ended up sharing space with over 100 German cockroaches. Although officials haven’t said where these flights originated, one plane is believed to belong to a Chinese airline. After finding these bugs, pest control technicians were brought on board to get rid of them, which involved fumigating the bathrooms, cabin, cargo hold and catering area.
The cockroaches will be checked for pathogens to make sure that they’re not at risk of bringing diseases back to China. The airlines were ordered to make sure their planes are kept as clean as possible to prevent these bugs from coming on board again.
