One more incident like this and Delta is going to get a reputation. Just weeks after a mouse was found on board one of their planes, causing an evacuation and serious delay... it's happened again!
According to the NY Times, last night a Delta flight at JFK, bound for London's Heathrow Airport, was delayed and passengers moved to another aircraft when a mouse was spotted on board. "The 147 passengers had waited for about half an hour for Flight 001 to leave the gate when a crew member announced that the mouse sighting meant the plane would have to be cleared."
The officials told passengers that if a mouse were indeed on board, it could chew through electrical wires and hydraulic lines. Ergo, all that is standing between you and certain death while flying is a tiny, little mouse.
