If this sounds strangely familiar, it should. It was less than a month ago that another passenger reported seeing a scorpion on a United flight. “While I was eating, something fell in my hair from the overhead above me," Richard Bell told the CBC. "I picked it up, and it was a scorpion. And I was holding it out by the tail, so it couldn’t really sting me then.”
That flight was also flying out of Houston.
His wife Linda told CNN the airline apologized and offered to compensate them, though she did not offer details about the compensation.
With how things have gone lately, it's hard not to feel sympathy for United employees. Things keep going poorly and it's usually not their fault. Also, why are there so many scorpions on planes in Houston?
