ATLANTA (AP) - US Airways says maggots falling from an overhead
bin from a container of spoiled meat forced a plane to return to
the gate in Atlanta.
US Airways spokesman Todd Lehmacher says a passenger brought the
container onto the plane and passengers noticed the maggots on
Monday on the flight bound for North Carolina.
The plane returned to the gate and passengers got off so crews
could clean the overhead bin.
Lehmacher says the flight then continued on to Charlotte, where
the plane was taken out of service and fumigated out of an
"abundance of caution."
