Mice On A Plane: Search For Escaped Pet Mouse Grounds Flight For 4 Hours (Consumerist)

Lauren and I had to chose to drive to California (and back) in 2003, because Northwest Airlines would not let us take our guinea pig Dr. Fleischman on a plane - they said he would chew through the plane wiring if he escaped, creating a potentially dangerous situation. We tried to explain that he was a) in a carrier and b) pretty content just to stay there and eat carrots, but to no avail.

We cursed them while we were cramming everything we could into my Integra for the trip(s), and again after thirty hours in the car (each way), and now it turns out that they were right after all! Rodents + Plane = issues.
