This Twitter user went viral in her thread describing a bizarre situation where her flight was delayed due to a flock of bees sitting on the wing. They talk us through the entire story, where they even called a beekeeper to remove the insects, only for him to be told to go home! Check out this unbelievable story to see how it ends.
An Anxious Wait
In a Twitter thread that took the internet by storm, a flight delay caused by a swarm of bees on the wing took passengers by surprise.
Passengers anxiously awaited the bees’ departure to get their flight going.
One passenger, Anjali Enjeti, provided all the sweet details in the Twitter thread that went viral.
As the flight from Houston sat on the tarmac, passengers were left stunned by the unexpected arrival of a swarm of bees on the wing.
Anjali explained, “We’re all just waiting for the bees to peace out so we can board!”
“Shouldn’t we bring in a bee expert to find the queen and make the rest follow her?”
A Buzzworthy Solution?
Time passed, and pest control was called in, sparking concerns among the passengers that harm might come to the bees. Anjali suggested, “Why don’t we just take off and hope the bees leave on their own?”
A glimmer of hope emerged when news spread that a beekeeper was on the way to safely collect the bees.
Anjali then switched to a window seat to view the exciting event, “I’m not moving from this window. I want front-row seats for this!”
Beekeeper to the Rescue?
The captain himself made an appearance to provide updates, adding to the frenzy.
Anjali shared, “The captain just told us about the beekeeper!” It seemed like the bees had chosen the plane as their hangout spot as soon as it reached the gate. The situation was becoming quite the spectacle.”
Cone markers were strategically placed, reserving a spot for the beekeeper, which Anjali found unbelievable!
Fuelling the Tension
More time passed, and more personnel arrived. Hilariously, Anjali craved a bag of Cool Ranch Doritos to curb her hunger.
In an incredible turn of events, the beekeeper wasn’t allowed to touch the place, and so never arrived. “The captain just said the beekeeper isn’t allowed to touch the plane! So they won’t be coming!”
So, How Could They Possibly Get Rid of These Bees?
“The new plan is to taxi the plane and hope the bees leave on their own! The captain isn’t too optimistic, though. But if they do leave, we can finally board!”
The passengers were left unsure if this approach would succeed.
Anjali tweeted, “Will I be sleeping at this airport tonight?”
Triumphant Departure: How They Did It Is Ridiculous!
The answer eventually was revealed, and you won’t believe how they did it!
Anjali shared the exhilarating news, exclaiming, “Omg y’all. As soon as our plane’s engine turned on, THE BEES LEFT!!! All Delta had to do was TURN ON THE PLANE.”
The passengers couldn’t believe their eyes. It seemed the bees were only looking for an excuse to buzz off!
Frustration To Fun
In a surprising twist, frustration turned to humour among the passengers. Anjali proudly declared, “We, the mighty Bee Passengers, are going to be flying out of Houston after all.”
They had turned a frustrating situation into a shared experience they would never forget.
Finally, the long-awaited “Bee Plane” arrived, and the passengers couldn’t board fast enough.
Boarded the Bee Plane! No Bees on This Wing!
As the plane touched down in Atlanta, Anjali expressed her gratitude to be back home.
She praised the pilot for keeping them informed and applauded the crew who handled the situation professionally.
Twitter absolutely adored this thread and were quick to respond, “I love the story telling, I was so invested and felt like I was there. Thank you for one of the best threads I have seen” One user exclaimed.
Another jokingly said, “Omg the way I wanted to know the full story lol that’s crazy! Thank you for telling us. Glad the bees got off and you got to finally leave.”
And one even boldly stated, “One of the best threads of all time.”
