A Port Blair-bound Indian flight had to be cancelled on Wednesday, minutes before take-off, leaving its 142 passengers high and dry in Chennai.

Reason: The pilot refused to take off as he noticed a rat sneak on board.

The Airbus A-320 was ready for take off when the rat was spotted, prompting authorities to disembark all the passengers. A massive search for the 'offender' was launched.

However, the tiny traveller proved too crafty and the search yielded no result. Finally, the flight had to be cancelled and the passengers were put in city hotels. They were to be flown to Port Blair later by another aircraft.

The Government is putting pressure on British Airways, the national flag carrier, to buy Airbus aircraft and Rolls-Royce engines to protect jobs in this country.

BA is weeks away from announcing whether it will buy $6 billion (£2.95 billion) of new aircraft from Boeing or Airbus.

It will spend about $1.5 billion more on engines from either Rolls-Royce or America’s General Electric. Government ministers and officials are understood to be urging Willie Walsh, chief executive of BA, to “buy British” by supporting Rolls and Airbus, both of which have large manufacturing operations in the UK.

BA traditionally has been a Boeing customer for long-haul aircraft, but the airline is considering proposals from both manufacturers.
