Most Flights Canceled at Bradley Airport

American & Southwest Cancel Flights Due to Winter Weather

American & Southwest Cancel Flights Due to Winter Weather

Beth VerSteeg got an entire plane to herself this week after accidentally scoring a seat on a flight intended exclusively for airline staff, according to Mashable.

"The change fee and any difference in fare will be waived for new United flights departing on or before January 8", United Airlines said in an alert.

The rat was seen jumping from the jetway to inside the aircraft.

Matt Gough was on the plane with his family.

For now, however, that plane is out of service, awaiting a certification from a professional exterminator to say it is undamaged by gnawing teeth and officially rodent-free.


The passengers who were already on the plane returned to the airport, with a lot of them rebooked on another flight to Portland International Airport later Tuesday evening. More than 900 flights were canceled in and out of the main three New York City-area airports.

"The plane is now out of service" the airline said.

The flight delay comes days after a small bird entered a Delta aircraft at the Detroit Metro Airport during plane boarding on December 30, 2017.

A female exterminator offered a glimmer of hope, but alas the flight was canceled shortly after noon, according to the intrepid passenger.

The Port Authority of NY and New Jersey said it had 524 pieces of snow equipment at the area's airports that can melt up to 500 tons of snow an hour but some flights may still be canceled due to high winds and poor visibility. The facility was located near Gate 8 inside Terminal 1, close to Gate 10 where the rat was spotted and made its run into the aircraft.
