Delta offers No Fees mouse poop

Quote:
(CNN) -- Most air travelers have encountered something gross on board planes at one time or another, like old food crumbs or stained seats. But now comes this: rodent droppings in the cabin.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration sent a warning letter to Delta Air Lines last week after inspectors found "the presence of rodent excreta pellets and rodent urine stains" near the food preparation and storage areas of one of the carrier's planes.
The inspection -- conducted from January 26 to February 2 in Atlanta -- revealed droppings "too numerous to count" in the ceiling panels of the plane's middle crossover galley, or directly over places where food and drinks are stored, according to the letter.
There were also rodent droppings above the door panels in the forward galley, where food is prepared by flight personnel, according to the letter.
The plane was pulled from commercial service, and the issue was resolved within a few days, Delta said in a statement.

The government's warning letter, dated April 13, asks Delta to outline the specific steps it has taken to correct the violations, including an explanation of how it plans to prevent them from happening again. The airline has 15 days to respond.
"We believe a recurrence is likely without adequate preventive measures in place," wrote John Gridley, director of the FDA's Atlanta District Office.

I would be more concerned about them chewing on critical wires myself.

Yes, a lot of critical things they could be chewing on, causing a crash.
If i found signs of mice living in my planes, they would be fully inspected immediately.
A little chewing on a hose, wire, or anything else is not good, and at least cause a fire or engine to die...........or worse multiple deaths.
