I feel like this has been a week of unreal travel news stories. I’ll let this tweet speak for itself:
“Ladies and gentlemen your flight is delayed b/c a box of live crabs spilled out in the cargo bin during flight” @USAirways how is this real

Yup. That happened.
Was just informed our flight is delayed because a shipment of crabs escaped in the cargo hold #crabsonaplane

The crabs probably saw their last chance for freedom and booked it. But alas, freedom was short-lived as ABC news reports that they were able to collect the crabs in about a half-hour.
This reminds me of something that would happen in the game Pocket Planes. Though, it’s usually the Angry Bees that get loose.
