A Qantas Boeing 747 airliner got disrupted  due to a  snake being found in the Qantas flight in Sydney.

Staff in Sydney,Australia luckily discovered a 20-centimetre (8-inch) Mandarin Rat Snake in the passenger cabin just before passengers were due to board the flight bound for Tokyo, Japan-  Qantas said in a statement.

The tiny exotic snake was said to have arrived aboard the jet in a flight a day earlier from Singapore. Qantas had to give passengers hotel rooms overnight and passengers left Sydney on a replacement plane Monday morning.

Snakes on a Aeroplane in Sydney

Australian authorities seemed to be concerned about the reptile harbouring  pests and diseases not present in Australia

In a previous snake incident involving Qantas , a 3-meter (10-foot) python in January clung to the wing of a Qantas flight from the northeast coast city of Cairns to Papua New Guinea. The python died during the flight but was suprisingly  still attached to the aeroplane wing when the two-hour flight ended in the national capital Port Moresby.
