Taking a long flight isn’t really anyone’s idea of fun.
Unless you’re willing to pay big bucks for first class or extra space, not having enough legroom and dealing with an unpleasant person sitting next to you is practically guaranteed. However, those little annoyances pale in comparison to what this woman and her little girl went through.
When Heather Szilagyi took a British Airways flight from Vancouver to London with her fiance, Eric Neilson, and her seven-year-old daughter, Molly, she says she saw bed bugs crawling out of an in-flight TV frame and her food tray. But despite informing the cabin crew twice, the family was told they couldn’t be moved.
When they landed, Szilagyi and her daughter walked off the plane with multiple bites…
…which only got worse the next day. Szilagyi says it completely ruined their trip.
“Once we got to the Airbnb that we were staying in, we went to sleep,” Szilagyi said. “My daughter had a few bites on her thighs but when she woke up she was covered, she had them all over. It was just so bad and awful, my daughter was bleeding.”
