How does a small bird in the cabin not affect flight safety?

 The passenger of Eastern Airlines took a video, there is a "bird" flying around in the cabin. Not to say that you don't buy tickets, nucleic acid may not be done. After the news fermented for a while, China Eastern Airlines came forward to explain. It said it was MU6692 on June 28, and the bird was caught in a few minutes. There are also "flight experts" said that this "does not affect the safety of flight" - not affect the safety, catch it for what?

After takeoff the cabin is "pressurized", that is to say, "sealed", so the bird can not be like James Bond in flight to the aircraft, this point flyers understand. But to say that "small birds do not affect the safety of flight", I think some people want to "serious". Small animals into the cabin are very dangerous; small birds on the floor scurrying words, some equivalent to mice. The mouse is very affected by safety, how small birds do not affect the safety of it?

There are often mosquitoes, flies, and sometimes spiders in the cabin of an airplane, and these small things usually do not pose a major hazard. But wasps and other insects, nesting in key parts of the fuselage, has been enough to cause the plane to crash. Rats are even worse, they bite wires or stuck in the actuation system (such as switches), the consequences will be unpredictable.

The common critters on planes are basically mice, snakes and birds. This is mainly because the ramp is very open and the plane is a rare "shelter". Especially in the hot summer months, snakes, mice and birds like to hide in the shadows of the aircraft. Snakes and rats like to explore and may climb into the cabin. It is easy to understand that there are galleys at the front and rear hatches of the aircraft, which may attract small birds for food.

Snakes and rats sometimes board the plane with the luggage, but the birds mostly fly in through the hatch on their own, as the flight crew may have experienced. In particular, the two doors of the rear cabin are often left wide open and unguarded. Query found MU6692 in Yantai by the bridge, the former sequence in Hefei also by the bridge. However, the flight was delayed for more than an hour because of weather, which probably increased the probability of the bird "boarding".

Civil aviation crews are trained to catch rats and are well aware of the dangers of rats. Historically, there have been many cases where flights have been cancelled due to rats because they could not take off if they could not be found. Exterminating rats can be done with sticky boards, or fumigation, anyway, "live to see rats, dead to see the corpse", otherwise it is categorically not dare to take off - snakes as well.

As for the cabin with small birds can not take off? La total is not a professional, speculation is "also can not". The bird will also be scurrying around, although not necessarily to the cockpit, and will not bite the wire like a mouse, but if you drill into the broadcast equipment, or stuck in the oven at the power supply, make a short circuit or something, it is estimated that it is also very troublesome. But it unknowingly into the cabin - you can not help.

I have flown many times and have never seen a snake or a small bird, only once did I fly with a gecko for a long time. The gecko was so small that it wasn't worth snitching to the flight attendant. If the bird stays in the line of sight of passengers, there is actually no danger. But Eastern Airlines is now a "sensitive airline", so today's discussion of this news is extremely large.

But the truth is, a small bird in the cabin, and the management of China Eastern Airlines, it really does not have much to do with.
