[Watch] On-Flight Water Leakage From Overhead Bin; Air India Regrets Incident
Mumbai: In a strangely bizarre incident, there was water leakage from the overhead bin of an Air India flight.
A video went viral on Thursday showing water dripping from the ceiling of the plane mid-air as passengers stayed rooted to their seats.
The rare leakage took place on flight AI-169, operating from London Gatwick airport to Amritsar on November 24.
The video was watched thousands of times, forcing Air India to explain what caused it and regret the ‘unexpected incident’.
