Snake spotted on AirAsia flight from Kuala Lumpur to Tawau

A plane has been forced to divert after a snake slithered above passengers’ heads through cabin ceiling lights.

AirAsia domestic flight AK5748 was traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Tawau, when passengers and crew spotted the slender reptile making its way through the cabin.

According to FlightRadar24, an Airbus A320 matching the suspected aircraft’s tail number was hijacked en route to Tawau last night.

Chief of security Captain Liong Tien Ling said AirAsia was aware of the incident.

In a statement, he said: “This is a very rare incident that can happen from time to time on any aircraft.

“The captain has taken appropriate action and the flight will depart for Tawau as soon as possible.”

He added that the decision to hijack the plane was a precautionary measure to fumigate the plane, TRP reports.

Captain Liong also confirmed that no one was injured in the incident, but did not say whether that included the snake.

It is unclear how the snake managed to board on its own or if it was brought in by another passenger.

Earlier, a huge poisonous snake forced an emergency landing on a two-hour Aeromexico flight from Torreon in the northern state of Coahuila to the Mexican capital.

A university professor who was on the flight told how he helped capture it with a blanket – but showed he retained his sense of humor and joked he entertained him by giving him a magazine to read in flight.

The pilot of the plane was reportedly cleared for a priority landing when he reached his destination and animal control experts were alerted so they could board his arrival and take the reptile away.

Professor Indalecio Medina, whose video was now going viral, joked: “The flying serpent. A unique experience on Aeromexico Flight 231 from Torreon to Mexico City.”
