Dubai-based airline, Emirates, on Monday said one of its flights from Muscat, Oman, to the United Arab Emirate, UAE, was cancelled the previous day after a snake was spotted slithering in the cargo hold.

It, however, added that no passengers were aboard the aircraft when the reptile was spotted.

The airline said in a statement, “Emirates can confirm that flight EK0863 from Muscat to Dubai on 8 January 2017 was cancelled due to a detection of a snake in the cargo hold prior to passengers boarding.

“Engineering and cleaning teams are working to clear the aircraft to re-enter service. We apologise for the inconvenience caused.”

The carrier later confirmed the serpent was eventually captured and the plane has been returned to service.
