Earlier this month, a Miami to Reagan National Airport American Airlines flight was delayed several hours due to a cockroach infestation.

In an article on Wltx.com, passenger Alissa Kempler recounted that she learned that she later learned that “50 roaches (were discovered) and they found a colony on a curtain between first class and the pilots."

American Airlines' spokesman Tim Smith told 9NEWS NOW that "infestations are very rare but not unprecedented." Smith says all of the planes are treated regularly by pest control companies. The planes have outside panels removed once a month to give maintenance crews better access and if a problem is detected, it will be treated during the next layover.
