Rats! Flight delayed by rodent on board

The late arrival of the incoming aircraft. Staffing issues. A mechanical fault. 

There are myriad reasons why a light might be delayed but an Air India flight bound from Srinigar to Jammu was this week delayed by two hours after a rat was sighted in the cabin. 

India’s Directorate General of Civil Aviation has ordered an investigation, Travel Mole reported.

The flight was able to depart from Srinagar Airport after rat was removed from the plane, airport officials told the news agency Press Trust of India.

Air India, under new management, did not respond to PTI’s request for a statement. Bad form. 

he Tata Group took over the operations of Air India on January 27. The Indian government sold the airline last year after a bidding process. 

It is not known how the rat got on board, or whether it survived.
