Another scorpion invaded another United Airlines flight from Houston on Thursday, prompting an evacuation of the plane, Houston’s KHOU reported.
A passenger told the station that the scorpion crawled out of the sleeve of a sleeping man in the back of the Quito, Ecuador-bound jet. Eek!
That’s when takeoff was delayed.
The captain of my flight just told us it’s a scorpion on the plane???!!!!! Good job United! 😡🤔

“Houston to Quito flight 1035 returned to the gate after a scorpion reportedly emerged from a customer’s clothing,” United said in a statement.
Another passenger reportedly saw the scorpion then crawl under the man’s seat.
United said paramedics at the gate “immediately examined the customer and determined that he had not been stung.”
Unlike the poor guy who did get stung by a scorpion on a United flight from Houston to Calgary last month.
As for the most recent encounter, United told outlets it provided meal vouchers to all passengers for the hours-long delay, and the flight eventually departed to its destination with the guy who reportedly had the scorpion up his sleeve aboard.
On a different plane, thankfully.
