Nope, not quite, but in a scene reminiscent of 2006’s action thriller movie Snakes on a Plane, an Emirates flight from Muscat to Dubai has been cancelled because a serpentine stowaway was discovered in the cargo hold. Samuel L. Jackson was nowhere to be found though.


“Emirates can confirm that flight EK0863 from Muscat to Dubai on 8 January 2017, was cancelled due to a detection of a snake in the cargo hold prior to passengers boarding,” an airline spokesperson said.

“Engineering and cleaning teams are working to clear the aircraft to re-enter service,” the spokesperson added. “We apologize for the inconvenience caused.”


As soon as the news hit, social media users were quick to make references to the movie Snakes on a Plane.
