Snake on Plane Cancels Flight, But It Looks Worse Than It Is

A snake on a plane (cue references here) resulted in a canceled Emirates flight today.

But a lot of news sources I’ve seen have been attaching the video and photo from a snake incident that occurred back in November on a flight to Mexico City.

At a quick glance, this made it look as if the snake was on board with the passengers.  But I did a double take when looking at my feed because I recognized that snake.

Yes, the snake got a flight canceled, but it was in the cargo hold and was nowhere near passengers.

From Fox News:

On Monday, Dubai-based Emirates said that one of its flights from Muscat, Oman, to the U.A.E. was canceled the previous day after a snake was spotted slithering in the cargo hold. No passengers were reportedly aboard the aircraft when the animal was spotted.

So don’t worry.  There isn’t a snake-on-a-plane epidemic that leads to Samuel L. Jackson levels of terror.  A snake just got loose in a cargo hold.

Here is the original footage of the wiggly snake from November’s flight.
