On Thursday, a USAirways flight from New York’s LaGuardia Airport to Charlotte was delayed for 25 minutes due to an issue in the cargo hold. It seems that some live crabs had escaped from their container and were wandering around. According to the Charlotte Observer:
The plane, scheduled to leave at 7 p.m., was still on the ground when crew members discovered the crustaceans, according to Josh Freed, a spokesman for US Airways.
“They were small, not Alaskan King crabs,” he said, noting there were “a decent number of them.”
Airline personnel swept out the cargo hold and sent the plane on its way at 7:25 p.m., Freed said.
No word on whether or not the in-flight meal was tastier than usual.
