Who in their right mind would gate check spoiled meat?

Maggots fall from flier's stowed bag, force US Airways flight back to gate in Atlanta

By Ben Mutzabaugh, USA TODAY


A Charlotte-bound US Airways flight was forced to return to its gate in Atlanta after maggots fell from a passenger's bag that was stowed in an overhead storage bin.

"The airline says spoiled meat in a suitcase is to blame for the mess," Atlanta's FOX 5 TV reports. The incident happened Monday, but does not appear to have been picked up by media until Tuesday evening.

"The maggots, they started to drip out of the bin in row 15," passenger Dona Adamo tells FOX 5. As you might expect, a commotion ensued as affected passengers discovered what was going on.

The Associated Press writes "the plane returned to the gate and passengers got off so cleaning crews could clean the overhead bin."

US Airways spokesman Todd Lehmacher tells AP the flight eventually did continue on to Charlotte, but was then taken out of service to be fumigated out of an "abundance of caution."

If you have the stomach for it, FOX 5 News has videos related to the incident.

19. I've seen them on live people
and it's been a good thing to see since the maggots ate all the gangrenous flesh while leaving the healthy stuff behind.

Maggots aint all bad, folks. They're just disgusting.
