What Can Make a Jet Turn Around And Return To The Gate?

A Terrorist? A Knife wielding crazed lunatic? How 'bout a small turtle....

A caged, 2-inch turtle traveling with a 10-year-old girl caused a crew to turn around a taxiing plane, take the girl and her sisters off the flight and tell them they couldn't bring their pet along.


AirTran company policy bars animals other than cats, dogs and household birds in the cabin, said spokesman Christopher White. White cited a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that says the reptiles have been known to carry salmonella bacteria.


In the end, the child and turtle were re-united even after the pet was dumped in the trash.

    So none of the airline personnel noticed the turtles in the cage prior to boarding the flight?
