The airline said, "Mr Kej, we regret the unpleasant experience you had. We understand that spotting an insect onboard is definitely upsetting, and we take such feedback seriously. While all our aircraft undergo deep cleaning and fumigation before every flight departure, be assured the same was done again immediately after it was brought to our attention. We truly value your patronage and look forward to welcoming you onboard soon for a better experience."

The video shared by Ricky Kej has garnered over 2 thousand views and is getting lots of reactions from netizens. One of the social media users gave a humorous response to the post, saying, "A perfect example of co-existence, isn't it?" To which Ricky replied, "Absolutely.. hahaha. Unless the cockroach and it's friends one day bring down the plane. Haha.." 

However, some of the other users were appalled after watching the video. One of the users commented on the post, saying, "I find it disappointing that an airline will respond to such a reported issue with a matter-of-fact kind of response and a boilerplate mention of protocol instead of taking it as a motivation to make things even better."
