Delta Airlines Plane Grounded at JFK Due to Mouse Onboard
A Delta Airlines plane was grounded at JFK for three hours this past Sunday after a mouse was found onboard.
300 passengers on the plane were told that the pilot wouldn't fly with the mouse in the cabin just in case a Snakes On A Plane situation occurred and the mouse interruped the electrical wires during the flight. In that movie a cargo of poisonous snakes causes havoc by attacking passengers and crew and the aircraft has electrical trouble.
The mouse could have chewed through wires on the plane so the pilot wanted a replacement aircraft.
Andy Picken, 47, who had been to the US with his wife Jenny to celebrate her 40th birthday, told the Sun he had to wait three hours for a substitute plane to arrive at midnight.
"We thought it was a joke, but the captain said we all had to get off.
"It is amazing that something as small as a mouse disrupted a transatlantic jet."
