外文标题：Air India denies report of lizard found in meal
MUMBAI: National carrier Air India on Saturday strongly denied reports of any passenger finding a lizard in the in-flight meal served on board a Delhi-London flight on Thursday.
"Air India has investigated the "incident" and has found it to be false and baseless. No such complaint by any passenger of the flight has been received on board the flight or at the Air India office in London," said the airline in a statement released on Saturday morning.
Earlier, reports quoting airline sources said the incident took place when the flight attendants were serving lunch on board the said flight on Thursday.
"A flight attendant got the said meal from the galley and soon after it was placed on to the tray, the passenger was heard screaming," said a source.
The lunch which was wrapped in a cling film had a lizard scurrying from under a burger, the source added.
"The passenger was very upset and said that he would lodge a complaint with the airline on landing. He did not file a complaint then and there itself as he said he was not sure about the complaint reaching the airline," said the source.

Now if it is to be proved all the passengers who were on board to be summoned to ascertain the correct fact.

There is no smoke without fire. If the incidence is incorrect as is being reported now. AI should find the originator of this article and file defamation notice against them. The Visuals of lizard have done great damage to the Indian career and people would be really scared of eating food while flying AI.
Its the usual habit of every organisation to deny if any default come from their end , Let go for an enqury

Eating in a Grade A restaurant I found a worm in my meals. When I shouted, a waiter came to our table and asked "What is the problem?". He saw the worm in my plate and eat it. I was silenced. Had to walk out in silence after paying the bills.
