Win­dow Seat

Travel Daily - - News -

OF ALL the in­fu­ri­at­ing reasons given for a de­layed flight, this one seems new.

The Alaska De­part­ment of Trans­porta­tion has con­firmed flights were sus­pended at Bar­row Air­port in the state’s icy north last week when a seal opted for a lit­tle sun­bathing on the main run­way.

An­i­mal con­trol of­fi­cers from the local bor­ough author­ity were called to con­front the stub­born mam­mal, and flights were able to re­sume a short time later.
