Bat goes for a fly on Spirit Airlines

August 05, 2019

Passengers on a Spirit Airlines flight got a little more than they bargained for when a bat starting flying around the cabin just 30 minutes after take-off.

Peter Scattini tweeted that he sworn he would never fly Spirit again after this last flight but decided to save $12 and was aboard the flight.

A spokesman for Spirit Airlines told Newsweek: “Spirit Airlines can confirm a stowaway bat was located on one of our recent flights from Charlotte to Newark.

“The bat was eventually corralled into a lavatory and removed once on the ground by animal control officers.

“The aircraft was disinfected and searched as a precaution. It is believed the bat started its journey in Charlotte, flying into an overhead bin while our crews were doing overnight maintenance. No one was hurt in this incident, including the bat.”
