http://www.comparecarrentals.com/news/alaska-airlines-flight-delayed-due-to-rat-53862341.html Planes get delayed for a lot of different reasons. Sometimes it is because of weather, and sometimes it can even be due to security scares. However, it is very rare that planes get delayed due to animals. It is even more rare when the animal that delays the plane turns out to be a rat. Well this is just what happened to an Alaska Airlines flight. The flight was suppose to be flying from Seattle Tacoma International Airport and going to Denver International Airport. However, before the plane could take off on Thursday, February 10, there was a slight problem. Needless to say, the plane did not get off the ground at 7:40am as it had planned.
