Maggots in Overhead Bin Force Plane Back to Gate

"They should ban that guy from flying for stupidity," he said, adding that US Airways did the right thing taking the plane out of service for cleaning.

"This is just a story about how stupid some passengers are and what flight attendants have to deal with," he said.

Bill Miller of travel site, CheapOair said this is a rare instance.

"It's interesting to see the eccentric items people try to transport," he said.

George Hobica, president of airfarewatchdog.com, simply said: "Eeeew."

"I've heard of snakes on a plane, but this is the first maggots on a plane incident," Hobica said. "It looks like US Airways did everything it could to rectify the situation as quickly as possible. Maybe the TSA should start screening for creepy crawlies in passenger carry-ons."

Adamo also questions why the TSA didn't see the maggots when the passenger's bag was being screened.

"How did they not catch that through security?" she asked. "I don't know what type of meat there is in Atlanta that you can't buy in Charlotte."

Today, Adamo is home in the Syracuse, N.Y., area and said she is doing fine.

"I'm glad it's over," she said, "but I'm going to take another shower because every time I talk about it, it skeeves me out."
