View from a Rhino House: mousing

The airline Norwegian Air Shuttle, suffering from a host of problems with its decision to become the first European budget airline to fly the profitable long-haul routes, was forced to delay a flight from Oslo to New York by over five hours on Tuesday because of a mouse in the cockpit.

“The pilots discovered a mouse on flight deck,” spokeswoman Charlotte Holmbergh said yesterday evening. “We had to make sure that no cables or wires had been chewed..”

Norwegian has recently had a string of technical troubles with its new Boeing 787 Dreamliners delaying many of its flights & leaving passengers stranded at airports as from Bangkok to Florida.

The airline has in recent weeks managed to improved its reliability, but it runs its Dreamliners 18 hours a day, significantly longer than traditional carriers, so even small delays can cause significant schedule disruptions.

“At least the mouse was caught,” Ms Holmbergh added.

"I don't know why they gave us this job anyway, I just wanted to serve the nuts....."
