(Newser) – A mouse sighting delayed a Delta flight from JFK to London last night, the New York Timesreports. Passengers were switched to another plane after the tiny intruder was spotted in the cabin. "Plain and simple, there’s not supposed to be a mouse on the airplane,” an airline rep said. The flight finally took off more than two hours late.
