Mice On A Plane!

American Airlines ignores threat of catastrophe, flys 767 for 100 hours before addressing problem.

It was on our local news last night. Pretty scary. I wonder if this is an attitude problem? I wonder if it is a problem on other planes and airlines, or is it an isolated issue. Still... pretty worrisome.

FAA was notified and no response....

Not as serious as some may think....

a combination of a local news station and a dusgruntled employee... usually results in a "fantastic" story that is nowhere near the "catastrophic" proportions that it's portrayed as.....

I was thinking the same thing, Gail. I'll rent my dog to them. She killed a rat once (not in my house, I hasten to add.)

Erring on the side of negligence, eh?

Bwoy...ONE mouse on a plane is enough to cause a stampede...several mice on a plane is more than serious. If I'm on that plane it's a crisis!

FAA didn't think it required any investigation, but I have a perfect solution.....

Snakes on a plane!

I guess we have to add mousetraps to our carry-on from now on.

AAFF, did you see the movie?!

AA, there IS a movie with that title!

The snake in my barn is doing a good job with the mice so we are co-existing.

Gee - do you think I derived my thread title from anywhere in the pop cult?

esm,

I hardly ever go to the movies these days, but I do catch up on the ones I want to see when I fly. Either on DVD or on the IFE on the plane.

Somehow I don't see myself buying "Snakes on the plane" DVD, and I doubt very much that the airlines will be loading that particular movie onto their systems.....

I have 3 new DVDs that I will get to watch in couple of weeks during my flights to/from Lima.

Memoirs of Geisha
Munich
Green Street Hooligans

Plus whatever movies LAN Peru is showing on their IFEs in business class...

LOL; AAFF, I don't think I want to see that movie either.

Not related to this post but I saw flight plan and it shows all the nooks and crannies of an airplane which I found interesting. Another movie that won't be shown on an airline!

Actually "Flightplan" was shown during a flight. I just can't remember the airline....

It hardly seems fair that rodents can fly first class free while I have to hoard miles like a madwoman to get an upgrade to Business.

It's possible that the mice moved up to First because they didn't want to have to pay for drinks in Economy.

Next time, they're taking a European carrier.
