    Mosquitoes menace on Indigoís flight 15th Mar 17 at 11:24 AM
    Search the video of the Mosquito menace on Indigoís flight number labeled as LKO-PAT-CCU / 6E-342 / occurred on 19th February 2017.

    I want to tell you all that not only this is true about the inflight menace happened in Indigo aircraft, but I was among the passengers in the flight. As soon we entered the aircraft some strange smell was coming out. In a matter of few minutes to the worst of my nightmare saw mosquitos in the flight hovering above heads of passengers and the intensity grew further as the all Pax entered.

    There were two passengers who were really disturbed with the mosquitos. They objected this with the crew. Instead of getting an appropriate response what they received was a bad response from crew members. Later the two Pax were forcefully offloaded for protesting this at PAT Airport.

    Wasn't posting on TA enough? They're insects, they fly, doors open, in they go. You got a very informative reply from someone that works for an airline. Maybe you just didn't get the sympathetic responses you wanted, so thought you'd try again?

    Better than the alternative -- being sprayed with insecticide!

    I like the way they do it just before, or in my case after, landing. You've suffered the little blighters in a plane for the last 10 hours but we're not letting them into our country.

    I can think of several 'worst nightmare scenarios on a plane. Mosquitos don't feature though.

    When we used to go Turkey many years ago they used to spray insect repelent around the plane after they had closed the doors on the return journey,have never seen them do this recently,and its a bit late when you have been bitten to death by the little !!!!!!s whilst on holiday.

    I find flights very boring. The time would have passed more quickly for me trying to catch mosquitoes.

    I hope the mozzies went through security and weren't carrying any liquids over 150ml.

    I read a few weeks ago about a flight being cancelled because there was a mouse on the plane. One of the passengers commented that it must be the prequel to Snakes on a Plane, which explained why they got there.

    I've just sent my CV off to IndiGo.
    This is me in my work gear:



    Do you think they will let me on board the aircraft just before the passengers board, or even better, when they are all on?

    Being serious for a minute, any very warm & wet country with lots of standing water and vegetation makes the perfect breeding ground for mossies (trust me, I've worked in quite a few) and governments around the world have been trying for decades to eradicate or cut down the numbers with only very limited success.
    When the area is rife with mosquitoes, it would be almost impossible to stop them getting on an aircraft without the airlines or airport authorities spending a fortune, the cost of which that would get passed on to passengers by way of increased ticket prices or airport fees, something that I'm sure wouldn't be a popular move.

    Out of interest, what do you expect them to do about it? Do you have any suggestions how they could prevent the mozzies from getting into the plane?
