A passenger travelling to Chicago on an Air India flight found a dead cockroach in the meal that was served onboard.

Rahul Raghuvanshi who was travelling from Hyderabad via Delhi took to Twitter to express his shock and posted a picture of the meal too. 

In response, Air India tendered apologies for any inconvenience caused. "We have a zero tolerance policy in this respect. Obligatory action is taking place," the airline said in a tweet.


This incident prompted the airline carrier to order a probe into the matter and also send a notice to the caterer concerned.

"Air India took serious note of the incident and issued notice to the caterer concerned immediately. Further investigation is going on," said Dhananjay Kumar, Senior Manager, Corporate Communications, Air India.
