TravelSpirit passengers spooked by bat on flight to New Jersey
Couple Kicked Off Plane for Ignoring In-Flight Safety Briefing
"You'd think they'd be embarrassed or mortified, but they seemed quite chuffed about the whole thing,” a passenger said.
Travelers on a Spirit Airlines flight from North Carolina to New Jersey were spooked by an unwelcome passenger this week: a bat flying through the cabin.
And, no, it doesn't appear to be an.
Peter Scattini, a 23-year-old passenger on the budget airline's 6 a.m. flight from Charlotte to Newark Wednesday, posted a 13-second video of the incident on Twitter along with the caption: "Me, twice a year: 'll never fly Spirit again.' Me, this morning, after deciding i’d rather save 12 dollars.''
The video, which is going viral, features a couple passengers squealing "Oh my God'' and another asking if the creature is a bat.
These Are the Airlines Most Likely to Lose Your Luggage
One way to increase your chances of seeing your checked bags at your destination airport is to choose the airline you fly with wisely.
Spirit did not respond to requests for comment.
Scattini, an actor, said that someone trapped the bat between a book and a cup and locked it in the bathroom for the rest of the flight.
"I'd assume animal control was called but I don't know what the verdict was,'' he posted in a Twitter reply.
The reaction on Twitter predictably focused on Batman, Halloween and Spirit's reputation as a discount airline, with bargain fares and fees for everything.
One post joked: "Bat storage fee was $15. Easy choice to let it fly around.''
Another: "They're probably charging you $20 for the show.''
Others said the video reminded them of an episode from "The Office,'' where Dwight catches a bat.
"When I saw the FA (flight attendant) peaking out of the lav, all I could think of was Dwight and Meredith,'' one post said.
