A flight attendant was unable to hold back her fear when a mischievous cat escaped its carrier and roamed free in the cabin of a Delta Air Lines flight.
The amusing moment was captured by a passenger, who uploaded it onto YouTube yesterday with the caption: “Cat got loose on my Delta flight this morning. Flight attendant did not like cats, haha.”
The clip quickly went viral, attracting more than 30,000 views in less than 24 hours.
During the 83-second video, as the tortoiseshell cat approaches the flight attendant, she is heard telling the animal: “Sit right there, don’t move.”
It is not known where the flight was traveling to and from, but the airlines do allow cats to travel in a number of ways — including as carry-on baggage, as checked baggage and shipped as cargo.
Delta Air Lines permit cats to travel alongside their owners in the cabin for a one-way fee, dependent on the destination.
However, the airline regulations insist the pet must remain inside a kennel with the door secured while in the boarding area, the Delta airport lounge and while on board the aircraft.
The Delta website adds: “We offer several options to get your pet to your destination, and we treat our four-legged friends with the same attention and courtesy our human passengers expect.”
Delta Airlines could not be immediately reached for comment.
