Alaska Airlines Flight from Oakland to Portland Hijacked


By a rat!

He hopped on, flashed his incisors and told the pilot, "Take me to see Katie!"

At which point the pilot panicked, ran from the plane and told the flight attendants to clear the plane.

I saw where one person named him, "Raider Rat" after owner Mark Davis for moving to Vegas. Then there were tweets that people made jokes and teased the pilot but it wasn't so funny when they were there for hours trying to rebook!

Maybe they need to get an exterminator for the airport! It does have a lot of rat habitat around it - semi-marshland.

I've never liked flying Alaska Airlines - now I understand why. They may need to rethink their vermin-advertising strategy.

I like them, I've always had good service from PDX to CA. Rats are everywhere, couple years ago I was watching one of the local stations on the invasion of the downtown area by sewer rats, I live in the hills, never saw any till right after the show, when driving home in the evening, something very large ran across the street, sewer rat. According to one of the articles the "8 Bar" at the airport had been issued a violation for vermin. They did not respond to phone calls. emoticon

It might not have been so funny either if the pilot had taken off and the rat had chewed through something important

Alaska Airlines has inserted a herd of feral cats into the plane to clean up the situation.

I get it but what was funny when a passenger asked the pilot why, that was not his reply, he didn't want it around his feet. Me either.
