Snakes on a Plane became a reality for passengers flying on a recent Aeromexico flight between Torreon and Mexico City.
Passengers were shocked when a poisonous five-foot-long viper dropped out of an overhead baggage compartment and dangled above their heads.
A quick thinking passenger shot some video of the snake where it can be seen slithering around the cabin.
A spokesman for Aeroméxico said, “AeroMexico reports that today, on flight 231 from Torreón to Mexico City, a snake was detected inside the passenger cabin.
“Due to the presence of the animal and following security protocols, the flight was given priority to land at the AICM. Once it had landed, AICM personnel secured the reptile.
“The procedures carried out for this flight are currently being evaluated to determine how the animal entered the cabin and measures have been taken to avoid such incidents in the future.
“For Aeroméxico, the security of its passengers and crew is of the highest priority and it always works to meet the highest quality standards.”
