"We have raised the issue with [Tel Aviv] airport to understand why the reptile was not detected during security," a statement said.

Israel is supposed to be good at security. Maybe they correctly determined the snake was not a security risk.

Well, there go my travel plans.

I don't know; I'm told I do a killer David Hayter impression, and I'd hate to deprive my fellow passengers of that.

There seems to be a discrepancy between what the passengers say happened and what the airline says happened. (What a shock.)

"Some passengers took to social media to say the man had got the snake out during the flight."

"The airline said the reptile had remained in its container at all times but as soon as the crew became aware of it they alerted the authorities at Luton Airport."

I don't know what the rules are about transporting non-venomous reptiles on planes.

Unfortunately, pretty restrictive.  Especially if you're crossing country borders.  They're also not allowed to travel with you - that means in a cargo/pet area.  Most reptiles get stressed easily, and the mortality rate on even short trips is unacceptably high.

Also, again, with cross border travel, you can't just 'get' your pet back either.  They hold it in isolation for 2 weeks plus, and of course, you have to drop it off way in advance, on their schedule.  I think for the exotics, they require you to come in if you want it fed, and they charge you for the stay like it's in a kennel anyway.

Basically, it's so awful to do it legally that it's just easier to shove it in a pocket or in a jacket lining and take the heat if it's found.

I don't whip out my snake. I just masturbate in the main aisle.

What - do you have a service gecko or something?

I was being non-ironical.
I'm too hipster for all of you to try to justify my vastly superior knowledge of obscure movie quotes and all that.

You could have avoided the whole thing...If only you spoke Hovitos...

Was it a specimen of pure alabama black snake?

^ Had a cousin who did the same thing.  Of course, the plane was going down at the time.

My wife and I have had a lot of pets over the years.  Something stupidly harmless like a baby bearded dragon or leaf tail gecko is a pain to transport via aircraft.  Something with mild danger like an immature iguana (some can be bitey) or tokay gecko (they look like they're smiling all the time, but they have razor sharp teeth and they're pissed off more often than not), is still fine; just get a ventilated box, stick it in a jacket, they're warm and happy, life goes on.

I think my sister in law might have also smuggled a hedgehog once.

They're all a lot better than many of those toy poodles with angry little dog syndrome that snarl and spit and yap any time someone walks past the aisle.  I've also never heard of anyone being allergic to reptiles.

The only real problem is when crossing country borders; pets may harbor diseases or parasites that are foreign to the area and can cause problems, or may themselves be a dangerous parasite.  So, that's a real concern that you should consider when flying internationally.  Just expect the answer to be an automatic, "No".  While there's no legitimate reason why exotics are treated differently than cats or dogs, they're given the 5'th degree anyway.
