“Detection of a snake in the cargo hold”
There was literally a Snake On A Plane and this isn’t even a movie. The Emirates plane on it’s way to Muscat was cancelled before takeoff as the serpentine was discovered in the cargo hold. Passengers had not yet boarded the flight. It’s not known how the snake got on the plane.
“Emirates can confirm that flight EK0863 from Muscat to Dubai on 8 January 2017, was cancelled due to a detection of a snake in the cargo hold prior to passengers boarding, engineering and cleaning teams are working to clear the aircraft to re-enter service. We apologise for the inconvenience caused.”
