New Delhi, March 21: A UN diplomat has complained about broken seats, no call buttons/reading lights, and cockroaches in an US-Delhi Air India flight.

“As a UN diplomat, I’ve flown worldwide but Air India 102 JFK to Delhi was my worst flight experience: Broken seats, no entertainment/call buttons/reading lights, and cockroaches. Poison spray. Disregard for customer care,” the diplomat had Tweeted about a week ago.
