Rats On Planes

Rat boards flight at California airport, forces cancellation

Associated Press •       OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Alaska Airlines is calling in an exterminator after the company says a rat boarded one of its planes at Oakland International Airport in California and forced it to cancel the flight.  The airline says passengers were boarding the Portland, Oregon-bound flight Tuesday when the rat jumped from the jet way onto the plane.

Passengers already on board came off, and the plane was taken out of service. Most of the 110 passengers scheduled to take the flight were rebooked on a later flight to Portland.  Alaska Airlines says it will resume using the plane when a professional exterminator certifies it is rodent-free. The aircraft will also be inspected for any damage.

Gavin:  This boarding process has become a real “rat race”.

Wyatt:  It seems that “rodent class” has been added to first and business class.

Gavin:  I suppose they get “cheese” instead of pretzels.

Wyatt:  The passenger seats are truly getting smaller.

Gavin:  Let’s hope the airline doesn’t start allowing “squirrels” on planes.
