The flight was scheduled to land at Jaipur at 6:15 pm but landed with a delay of 30 minutes at 6:45 pm. This is not the first time an unexpected bird or animal entered a flight. Just a few months ago a video of a bat flying inside a Spirit Airlines flight has gone viral on social media. The clip shows passengers screaming as the bat bounces inside the cabin of a flight going from Charlotte in North Carolina to Newark in New Jersey. Passengers were scared after it fluttered around for quite a while. Not just that, a woman was also recently stung by a scorpion on a United Airlines flight. The incident happened on the flight from San Franciso to Atlanta. She immediately rushed to the toilet to find a scorpion in her trouser.
