anyone have any funny stories relating to unwelcome 'passengers' on their flight, rodent or otherwise?
on a flight from Miami to Los Angeles I once saw a long rat's tail curled around the base of my seat.... it darted off and about a minute later a woman started yelling that something had just brushed against her leg.... the cabin crew came running and eventually cornered it and got it.

a rat nearly did cause an accident on a VN A321 about 6 months ago... one got loose in the cargo hold and chewed thru some essential wiring... on a flight the pilot noticed erratic readings on instruments.... the a/c was grounded, and after 3 days of intense fumigation they never found it.

A US Customs officer told me this one, one morning a Nigerian aircraft came into T4 at JFK the guys on the ramp opened one of the cargo holds and out came the largest rat anyone had seen according to this guy he said it was 3-4 feet in lenth with tail or not I dont know. From what he knows it was never found.
