It’s the rare occasion any of us will ever be jealous of a bird. About 12 hours into a Singapore Airlines flight SQ322 from Singapore (SIN) to London (LHR), a bird was found perched on a seat in the carrier’s famous business class.

The bird was found with about two hours remaining in the flight. Aboard an Airbus 380 (a flight we gave a pretty stellar review back in March 2018), the myna bird can be seen playing hard to get in the cabin, flying away from a Singapore staff member as they attempted to seize the stowaway.

Eventually, the fun came to an end when the bird was subsequently caught by the airline crew with the help of some of the passengers on board, according to Airlive. The airline also told Airlive that the myna was handed over to animal quarantine authorities once the aircraft arrived in LHR. We hope all is well with him — and that he at least got to enjoy the lie-flat seats, onboard Wi-Fi and a complimentary glass of champagne before he was found out.
