TWO PIGEONS prompted an unexpected delay to a GoAir flight over the weekend after sneaking onboard as the plane was about to take off.
Footage shared on Twitter by journalist Nirnay Kapoor captured the moment the two birds began causing chaos on a 5pm flight taking off from Ahmedabad International Airport in Jaipur, India last Friday, February 28.
It was a matter of pure coincidence that Kapoor was on the flight to begin with.
However, he footage did go some way to demonstrating the chaos and commotion generations by the flying fowls.
Much of the clip focuses on the efforts of her fellow passengers as well as the planes crews in attempting to round up to two rebel birds.
The clip proved popular on Twitter with the hilarity of the situation not lost on Kapoor.

“Wonder why a pigeon would need to board a flight when it can fly for free!" one follower joked.
GoAir didn’t quite see the funny side though.
Taking to Twitter in the wake of the video exploding on social media, they issued an apology online over the incident, insisting they “immediately got the birds removed from the aircraft”.
“We understand this was not the travel experience you were hoping for and we’re sorry,” the company said.
