This is one of the largest airline carriers in United States of America.

 

 

There are more than 100 passengers were told of the scorpion as they lined up at the gate for the 10:40 a.m. flight, said Jim Zuber, a passenger on the flight.

 

 

The flight crew was trying to decide what to do, said Jim Zuber.

 

 

The Boeing 737 had been in Phoenix the night before, said American Airlines spokeswoman Leslie Scott.

 

 

That flight was cancelled because the airline authority wants the passengers and crews to feel comfortable.

 

 

The scorpion stings hurt but are rarely life-threatening. Most stings do not require treatment among adults, but children are at risk for complications. It is unknown if the scorpion is still on board so the plane will go to a preservation facility in the Dallas Fort Worth area to be fumigated.
