    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.

    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?

    Yes. Make sure their passports are up to date and they have a boarding pass. Simples.

    I'm currently living in a place that has a fairly big mosquito problem (but nowhere nearly as bad as many parts of Asia and Africa) and although there is no malaria, there is Dengue and chikungunya.

    Because of this, we try to keep the insects out of our living areas but even with regular spraying and ensuring that all doors and windows are closed, they still manage to get in.

    Now imagine an aircraft being loaded with both passengers and catering supplies. There will be a few open doors for the mossies to enter and maybe Lucknow (LKO) is currently suffering from a bad time as far as mosquito infestations are concerned.
    It wouldn't be in the best interest of the airline if some of their staff got sick through mosquito borne diseases so I'm sure that if they could reasonably avoid them getting on board the aircraft, they would do so.
