A PESKY mouse delayed a Qatar Airways flight from Madrid to Doha by more than six hours after sneaking on board last night.
Passengers on the previous flight alerted the airline after the rodent made its way down the aisle as the plane touched down at Madrid’s Barajas airport.
The airline took immediate action to fumigate the aircraft which resulted in a six hour delay as the fumes dissipated and the mouse’s corpse was removed from the scene.
This isn’t the first time a rodent has caused problems for air passengers. In October, a flight from Zurich, Switzerland, to Malaga was delayed by five hours after a mouse showed up.
And last December, a flight from London to New York was cancelled after a mouse was spotted on the plane.
