NEWARK -

Passengers on Air India flights flying out of Newark Liberty International Airport say they were bit by bed bugs this week.

A man on a 17-hour flight to Mumbai posted photos of what looked like the bugs on Twitter, claiming the business class seats he and his family purchased were "infested."

Another passenger said he could see bugs crawling on the seats.

The airline responded to the man's tweets and said they reported the incident to their maintenance team.
