I’m terrified of snakes. TERRIFIED of them. So I think I’ve finally found my personal nightmare. A snake was found inflight on yesterday’s Aeromexico 231, operating from Torreón to Mexico City using an Embraer 190. I’d do more research about the type of snake, etc., but the thought of this story just makes me nearly throw up, so I’ll just leave you guys with the video.
La vibora voladora…ja ja ja. Una experiencia única en el Vuelo Torreón-México, vuelo 231 de Aeroméxico. Eso si…Prioridad en aterrizaje. pic.twitter.com/qwDk6Wtszw

Here’s what the passenger who caught the snake had to say, per Express:
Professor Indalecio Medina, whose video was today going viral, joked: “The flying snake. A unique experience on Aeromexico flight 231 from Torreon to Mexico City.”
He later added on social media: “I had to catch it with a blanket and obviously we gave it some magazines to read for a while.
“The snake arrived alive and kicking, frightened but without having paid its airfare.
“And best of all, priority when it came to landing and animal control experts waiting for the unexpected traveller.”
Please don’t ever let this happen on my flight, please don’t ever let this happen on my flight, please don’t ever let this happen on my flight…
I’m suddenly itching everywhere.
