Imagine if a pigeon suddenly started flying in front of you while travelling on a plane?
Such a strange phenomenon actually occurred during a flight by a company called Go Air when 2 pigeons started flying in the cabin.
The flight was scheduled to depart from Ahmedabad airport at 5 pm in Jaipur and sat in the passenger seats.
The pigeons appeared minutes before the flight departed, leaving passengers and staff members stunned, whose videos also went viral.
Videos of the incident also went viral.
Wonder why a pigeon would need to board a flight when it can fly for free!— Dhanraj Nathwani (@DhanrajNathwani) February 29, 2020
Absolutely crazy scenes in the @goairlinesindia as 2 pigeons were found inside the plane. #viral #ViralVideos #pigeon #ICYMI @AAI_Official pic.twitter.com/oHI1eujZAm
In the videos, a pigeon can be seen flying back and forth in the cabin during which staff members lean in to protect themselves while the passenger laughs, while a man lifts his hand and attempts unsuccessfully to catch the bird.
The air plane doors were opened tight so the pigeons could get out.
"We can understand that this is not the experience you expect and we apologize," the airline officials responded to people's tweets.
They said the crew immediately evacuated the bird and left for the flight on time, but local media reported the flight had a 30-minute delay.
