Rat Grounds Alaska Airlines Flight At Oakland International

Rat Grounds Alaska Airlines Flight At Oakland International”

Passengers were forced to deplane Tuesday morning at the Oakland International Airport due to a rat on an Alaska Airlines aircraft. "The flight's 110 passengers are being accommodated as appropriate by Alaska Airlines flights from San Francisco and San Jose airports".

The flight - Alaska 915 - was at Gate 10 at 8:30 a.m. for a flight to Portland, Ore., when the rat was spotted entering the plane.

"That's when a rat was spotted jumping from the jet way to inside the aircraft", the airline said in an email. The flight had 110 passengers and Alaska Airlines said a lot of them were booked on an evening flight to Portland while some will fly north Wednesday. Some passengers are scheduled to fly out on Wednesday.

American Airlines said the incident stemmed from an unspecified mechanical issue, and that the plane would be taken out of service.

Officials say the plane returned to the gate and three crew members and a passenger were taken to hospitals.
