Malaga flight delayed five hours due to a mouse


A Swiss aircraft travelling from Zurich to Malaga was delayed for a gruelling five hours as one flight attendant spotted a mouse running around the cabin. This caused the plane to be grounded immediately due to the mouse imposing a health and safety risk.


The passengers were required to wait for a replacement aircraft to arrive before they could leave for their destination due to the possibility that the mouse could damage some crucial safety equipment or electrical equipment. Passengers were able to fly to Malaga later that evening and a full check was performed on the grounded plane to ensure the mouse was caught and had not damaged anything.
