Mouse on a Plane Delays London-San Francisco Flight


Passengers on a San Francisco bound British Airways flight from London Heathrow on Wednesday suffered a four-hour delay due to the discovery of a mouse on the plane.

The British Airways' Flight 285 operated by a Boeing 777-300, was readying to push back from the boarding gate when the mouse drama began.

"Somebody saw a mouse that scurried under one of the doors," passenger Chris Claeboe said to ABC 7 of San Francisco. "They kept us on the plane for about 15 minutes, told us we had to get off the plane because we couldn't fly with a mouse."

Eventually, passengers on BA Flight 285 were put on a replacement aircraft, causing a delay of 4 hours and 16 minutes, according to British Airways’ website.

The flight made up some time en route but still landed in San Francisco late, arriving 3 hours, 35 minutes past schedule.

British Airways acknowledged the disruption in statement provided to Today in the Sky.

"With service and prices this good, we know almost everyone wants to fly with us to San Francisco," the carrier said. "But on this occasion there was one very small customer who we had to send back to the gate. Everyone holding their own passport is now on their way to California, and we are sorry for the delay."

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

Good location astounding but the staffs are rude and they make me wait so long for the service. They charge me more than what is on the website and did not refund me the manager is not helping with the issue

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
