US Airways says maggots falling from an overhead bin from a container of spoiled meat forced a plane to return to the gate in Atlanta.US Airways spokesman Todd Lehmacher says a passenger brought the container onto the plane and passengers noticed the maggots on Monday on the flight bound for North Carolina.
The plane returned to the gate and passengers got off so crews could clean the overhead bin.
Lehmacher says the flight then continued on to Charlotte, where the plane was taken out of service and fumigated out of an "abundance of caution."
