No matter how many times it happens - something creepy and unexpected on a plane is always nerve-wracking.
Recently passengers on a flight headed from Tel Aviv to Luton Airport got quite a surprise after realizing a snake was traveling with them on the aircraft.
While the circumstances of why the snake was on the flight in the first place aren’t completely clear, some of the other travelers on the plane claimed a man, who kept the snake as a pet, let it out during the journey.
The airline, Easyjet officially confirmed the unidentified man had taken his pet snake on board the flight. However according to authorities at the airline, the snake was kept in its crate at all times and was never freed during the journey.
It was also pointed out that fellow passengers were never in any danger and that the slithery creature was what they referred to as a harmless corn snake. Bedfordshire Police spoke to the snake owner when the plane landed but he walked away without facing any punishment.
Officials with Easyjet noted “We have raised the issue with Tel Aviv airport to understand why the reptile was not detected during security.”
