Business class bird stowaway in Singapore Airlines flight
by The Straits Times – Asia News Network
Business-class passengers found themselves greeted by the stowaway about 12 hours into the flight. A typical Singapore-London flight takes about 14 hours.
In a statement yesterday, a Singapore Airlines spokesman confirmed that a bird was found on flight SQ322 last week.
“It was subsequently caught by cabin crew with the assistance of some of the passengers on board,” said the spokesman.
In a video posted on Facebook, the mynah can be seen perched, seemingly unfazed, on top of an unsuspecting passenger’s headrest. An air steward is seen making a grab for the bird but it evades capture.
SIA saythe bird was handed over to animal quarantine authorities once the aircraft touched down in London. The airline did not provide more information on how the bird got into the aircraft.
