Hamster goes on the loose and delays flight

Flight delayed due to hamster! We didn't think we would ever be typing this post, but there you go! A hamster that was somehow roaming free through an aircraft on a flight scheduled to depart from Brunei to Brisbane led to all passengers having to leave the plane and the flight subsequently being delayed.

The hamster was discovered by airline crew while the plane was being prepared for takeoff. All passengers were told they had to leave the aircraft in order for the plane to be thoroughy searched. The plane was then disinfected and was able to depart after another round of security checks.

How exactly the hamster ended up on the airplane and whether the critter was harmed in the making of this unusual story is unkown..
