Hoot have thought?

A stowaway bird made a surprise appearance in business class during a long-haul Singapore Airlines flight.

The myna was filmed by an unnamed passenger and uploaded to Facebook, where it has been seen more than 30,000 times. In the footage, the bird is seen perched on one of the business class seats looking around as no-one pays it any attention.

It is believed to have entered the plane, bound for London Heathrow, in Singapore and remained in a dark place until the high altitudes and lower cabin pressure prompted it to make an appearance, reports the Mirror. However, the myna, was captured after the plane landed and was placed in quarantine by the airport authorities.
