Rats in First Class

Stressed now?We really hope this is PhotoShop. There’s certainly a lot to worry about when flying these days.

If you’ve read You Are Not So Smart by David McRaney, you’re worried about having another plane slam into yours upon landing, burning you alive. If not, CNN has you fretting over Ebola, cabin strikes, restless leg syndrome, and Russian Separatists. Plus, while Samuel L. Jackson has long preached about the perils of drugged up snakes popping out of the overhead compartment, Air India has now added rats to the worry list.

Air India Flight AI021, from Calcutta to New Delhi had to be grounded when rats (think Splinter only less radioactive) were spotted running up and down the aisles.

Side note: Anyone else getting a weird Witches flashback?Congress.

It’s not just the ick factor that grounded the flight, but rather the fact that similar to Snakes on a Plane (“Any one of those slimy little pieces of shit can trip a circuit or a relay or a hydraulic and this bird goes down faster than a Thai hooker.”), any of those furry flea carriers could chew through electrical wires also downing the plane faster than Michael Moore downs a BLT.

Stressed yet? Well, take a second and let Air India allay your fears with their response to the incident where they said that rats were a “common phenomenon” in aviation.

So, when is you’re next flight and how much Valium will you need to get through it?

    Let's not forget about the insects and bacteria that are in the pouch on the back of the chair.

    Well traveling itself is a hectic thing but its necessary to survive in the world and manage your tasks. I have been managing college paper writing service reviews for international students since few years and I have to travel to different places frequently to visit my clients. If I will think about the issues and make them reason to stop traveling it will not work for me.
