This is not the first time the airline has experienced this problem. Back in April 2018, when a doctor from Bengaluru experienced similar discomfort of mosquitoes and even raised a complaint. But when he got into an altercation with the flight staff he was deplaned by them for using 'threatening language.' But later the airlines were made to pay money to settle the dispute of these complaints. From the month of May last year, the airline service had decided to get mosquito swatters on planes to deal with the problem. There have been a number of times when passengers have complained about the mosquito problem.
