Maggots In Delta Airlines Overhead Compartment Fall On Passengers

Passengers aboard Delta Airlines recently showered with maggots upon falling from the plane’s overhead compartment.

The bugs contained infested fish that a passenger had stored in their carry-on luggage, according to The Independent.

In a since-deleted post on X, formerly known as Twitter, a user named Kelce wrote, “Really lovely to be 2 hours into an 8 hour @Delta to Amsterdam and find out there is rotten fish and maggots hitching a ride with us.”

Considering the incident, the Delta Airlines flight was forced to reroute to Europe, according to the New York Post.

The X user called Kelce told the Daily Mail that the passenger responsible for inserting infected fish into his suitcase was detained by authorities. The luggage is set to be burned.

The incident garnered the attention of a Reddit page dedicated to Delta Airlines, with commentators claiming they witnessed what happened.

“My family and I were in the row directly in front of the maggots. The lady right behind us told the flight attendants the maggots were falling on her head,” one of the alleged passengers wrote. “Ugh. I turned around and they were wiggling around on the seat.”

“They moved us further in front though. One of our carry-on bags was right nearby the disgusting one so at the end of the flight when I went to get it after checking it over thoroughly, the passenger in question was still sitting there and didn’t exit the plane,” the individual added. “Some kind of consequences but unclear what.”

The Daily Mail noted that Delta’s Air policy allows food as a carry-on, with such an action not considered dangerous by the airline.

The recent incident is not the first time such a matter has occurred aboard a Delta flight.

In January 2024, passengers aboard the airline after a fellow traveler failed to make it to the bathroom on time, leaving human feces on the flight.

On Reddit, a user explained that they were traveling on an early morning Delta flight from Birmingham, Alabama, to Atlanta, Georgia, when their eight-year-old daughter began complaining of a “terrible” smell on board.
