DSC_0335 (1)A bat that somehow managed to board a Spirit Airlines flight from North Carolina to Newark, New Jersey frightened passengers as it flew throughout the cabin.

Spirit Flight 876 left Charlotte Douglas International Airport at 5:57 a.m. Wednesday morning and had already been aloft for 30 minutes when the bat appeared.

One passenger, Peter Scattini, posted a video of the bat on Twitter, with the caption “There is deadass a bat on this Spirit Airline.” The video shows the bat flying down the center of the aircraft while a child screams.

The bat was eventually trapped and left to continue the remainder of the flight in a lavatory. The airline did not comment as to whether the mammal was a passenger’s emotional support bat.

Despite the incident, or perhaps because of it, the aircraft arrived at the gate at 7:34 a.m., 24 minutes earlier than scheduled.
