Bed Bugs Attack: L.A. Woman Says She Was Swarmed, Bitten Bloody by Bed Bugs on British Airways Flights (Photos)
British Airways often markets itself as a classier alternative for transatlantic flight. There's a hint of royalty as British accents in its television adverts proclaim excellence. One commercial even beckons travelers with the slogan, "Experience a softer world." Footage depicts a woman's head resting comfortably on a crisp, white pillow.
Zane Selkirk bit back.
That certainly wasn't 28-year-old Zane Selkirk's experience, at least according to the Angeleno's claims regarding her recent flights on the airline, which she has posted on a website she calls BA Bites!
During two BA flights in recent months, including one from LAX to London Heathrow, Selkirk says she was ...
... bitten ~100 times by chubby, crunchy, blood-sucking insects ...
Nasty, but there's more. On that LAX-Heathrow journey, Selkirk says this was her experience:
"I turned on my light to find bugs crawling on my blanket and a bedbug-blood-spattered shirt. On the return journey, I left my 10-hour flight to find my body covered with 90 bug bites. The worst part was the nonexistent customer service throughout the 10-day ordeal."
