An Emirates flight from Muscat to Dubai on Sunday was delayed after baggage handlers found a snake in the plane’s cargo. It’s just like that movie. (Can’t remember the name, though. Help me out?)

“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,” an airline spokesperson told the Gulf News.


Sadly, this isn’t the first time life has imitated art so aptly. Eleven years after Samuel L. Jackson issued his dire warning, it seems the snake on plane threat persists.
