Jackson appeared in the Mideast hotspot of Dubai, it really was only a matter of time before another snake on a plane would turn up. On Monday, Dubai-based Emirates said that one of its flights from Muscat, Oman, to the U.A.E. was cancelled the previous day after a snake was spotted slithering in the cargo hold. No passengers were reportedly aboard the aircraft when the animal was spotted.

Engineering and cleaning teams are working to clear the aircraft to re-enter service. We apologise [sic] for the inconvenience caused. The carrier later confirmed the serpent was eventually captured and the plane is now back in service. Emirates has not confirmed the species of the reptile or whether the snake was venemous.
