Passengers of Air India’s Delhi–Bhopal flight created ruckus at Raja Bhoj Airport in Bhopal on Friday after they were allegedly served stale food on the flight.

As soon as the Air India’s AI-435 flight landed in Bhopal at 7.30am, the passengers gathered at Air India’s office at the airport and complained about the stale food served to them.

The passengers alleged that when they complained to the flight attendants about the food, they were asked to eat it or leave it.

Rajya Sabha MP Chaudhary Munawwar Saleem was also among the passengers who complained about ‘stale food’ served to them, sources said.

Air India officials denied any such incident and said they didn’t receive any complaint from the passengers.

“The management would have ordered a probe had they received a single complaint,” said an Air India official on the condition of anonymity.

Such allegations about the national carrier’s meals are not new. In June 2015, a tweet showed the picture of a lizard found on a Delhi-London flight. It created a flutter on social media, forcing civil aviation minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju to come up with a statement.

However, in that case too, the Air India authority denied the charge as “false and baseless”.
