Alaska Airlines had to delay a flight getting ready to leave Seattle-Tacoma International Airport when a rat was seen scurrying in the cabin. The airline says the flight from Seattle to Denver had just pulled away from the gate Thursday morning when the furry stowaway was spotted. The 737 jet returned to the terminal and passengers and crew boarded another plane about 90 minutes later. An airline spokeswoman said the plane won’t be returned to service until maintenance workers make sure the rat didn’t damage equipment or chew any wires. They’re also bringing in an exterminator to certify the plane rodent-free.
