American Airlines has confirmed that a flight from California to Phoenix was canceled for an unusual reason — a scorpion was spotted on board the plane. Airline spokeswoman Leslie Scott said the Boeing 737 had been in Phoenix the previous day, and that’s likely where the scorpion boarded. The airline eventually decided to cancel the flight. “The flight was canceled because we want passengers and crews to feel comfortable,” Scott said. “This is one for the books. Or Believe it or not. American Airlines is canceling my flight because they found a ‘SCORPION’ in the plane!” one traveler wrote on Facebook. “I suppose I should be happy it is not a BOMB!” Scott said the plane was taken to a maintenance facility in the Dallas/Fort Worth area to be fumigated after the crew was unable to determine whether the scorpion was still aboard the flight.
