An Alaska Airlines flight heading out of the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport returned to the gate due to a tiny stowaway.
As the Denver-bound plane was heading to the runway passengers saw a rat running around in the cabin area.
The 737 pulled back to the gate where passengers and the crew were given another, rodent-free plane.
Alaska Airlines said they won’t put he plane back into service until their maintenance workers verify that the rat didn’t chew any wires or do other damages. They are also going to attempt to find how the rat got aboard the plane – at least without going through TSA screening and having proper documentation.
