Ya know how we kvetched the other day about the lack of meals on planes? It's okay. We're good. We take it all back and we'll happily sit with a rumbling stomach if it lessens our chances of being confronted with a mess of maggots while taxiing down the runway.
Passenger Donna Adamo noticed a few flies onboard., but didn't give it any further consideration until taxi time, when she noticed a fellow traveler refusing to take a seat.
Adamo tells ABC News that when she looked down at her clothes, "I thought it was a piece of lint but when I went to flick it off, it was squishy."
She added, ""We were ordered to sit in our seats as maggots were dripping on us. It was only five to seven minutes but it felt like 30 minutes."
The planeload of repulsed passengers was brought back to the terminal for rebooking on other flights.
The container of spoiled meat was packed into an overhead bin by a passenger and unrelated to any in-flight service items. No word on if any maggots made their way onto the beverage cart, but we're hoping not as we can only imagine it was most strenuously utilized immediately thereafter.
