No one noticed the bird flying into the plane at Ahmedabad; it stayed under a seat in the front cabin.

The incident took place on 21 August.

Sources from the airline on which the incident took place said that a bird flew on their plane last month. However, a senior official of the same airline said the incident was never confirmed.
