The mouse:
“Due to safety concerns SAS has decided to ground the aircraft until the mouse has been caught.”
"As the Airbus 330 is among the largest aircraft in the SAS fleet, finding a replacement has been difficult."

Really feel bad for those passengers. Hopefully they will find the mouse before tomorrow morning, or another long haul rotation will be cancelled. SAS doesnt have any spare long haul airplanes to cover for this.

With all the crumbs on a cabin carpet (even after the aircraft has been cleaned) the mouse has no desire to leave that airplane until it has stocked up its belly for winter. So far, the mouse wins.

Whatever happened to keeping a cat on hand for this problem? I thought that was the usual remedy for this problem.

I recommend baiting a trap with peanut butter. Always works for me. Do you have peanut butter in Scandinavia, or is that a US thing? Maybe Nutella would work.

I wonder if they caught the mouse as both ARN-US flights departed this morning.

Surely in these situations they seal off the aircraft and fumigate it, killing the mouse and any other animal that may be dwelling in the fuselage?

I remember watching "Airline" years ago when a Britannia 767 had a lizard running around so they just fumigated it and removed the dead critter afterwards.

Although, maybe they can recruit the mouse as crew? Will probably be friendly and nicer to behold than current SAS cabin crew!



Next Flights: LHR-OSL (319-BA), OSL-LHR (319-BA), LHR-CPH (320-BA), VXO-BMA (S20-TF), ARN-CPH (738-SK), CPH-LHR (320-BA)

Then they have to find the carcass before it starts rotting and stinking up the cabin.

Hang on...what about animal welfare issues? A mouse is a valid life too and needs respect like any other living organism.

This might be a good time for SAS to look at their hygiene. Crumbs on cabin floors, the health aspects of their catering suppliers, cleanliness of airport terminals.

It's not the mouse's fault it found an ideal place to live.

Reminds me of a flight I took in 1982 from YMC-YUL on an AC DC-9. I had 2 boxes of live lobsters which I didn't want to check, because there'd be nothing in them by the time the YUL baggage handlers had dealt with them. They wouldn't fit in the overhead, so we stowed them in a lav. We encountered a nasty 30 seconds of CAT, lav door flew open, boxes flew out - live lobsters scuttling around the back of the plane, and pax with their feet up on the seat.


Empty vessels make the most noise.

The mouse is unlike some a.netters. She did not go for the 4 engines 4 long haul thing, yet she had the choice given the nature of SAS fleet.


When I doubt... go running!

Have you ever seen the barrels of food scrapped out of aircraft at maintenance checks? Hundreds of pounds (I'm not kidding or exagerating) with some examples.   

That mouse, its kids, grandkids, and great-grandkids are set for life!

"The small rodents - about 80 in total, according to a local newspaper - escaped from the bag of a man travelling on the domestic flight. "

I was gonna say that this would make a pretty crappy movie, but compared to the snake version, I don't see how it could be any worse...

Maybe it was food for his other live cargo, a snake. In which case....all sorts of jokes come to mind.
