For those who have taken long-haul flights, you will appreciate the amenities in Singapore Airlines' business class cabin.

Here's a bird who probably was tired of flying long haul and decided to hitch ride instead.

Mynah found on board Singapore Airlines' flight

The mynah was spotted in the business cabin of a Singapore Airlines' flight.

In a video posted on Facebook, the mynah was seen standing on the seat of one passenger.

The man had his headphones on his ears and appeared oblivious to the bird right behind him.

The mynah appeared to be calm in the video.

It was surveying its surroundings until an air steward came and attempted to catch it which startled the mynah.

At the end of the video, the air steward was seen keeping his composure while walking down the aisle to find the mynah.

Singapore Airlines responds

According to Shin Min Daily News, a spokesperson confirmed that this incident happened on Jan. 7, during a flight from Singapore to London on flight SQ322.

The mynah was found 12 hours into flying and was later captured with the help of the cabin crew and some passengers.

When the plane touched down in London, the crew handed the mynah over to the local animal quarantine authorities.

Speaking to the founder of a nature group Nature Trekkers, the bird was identified as a starling and could be a mynah.

It could have entered the plane and was resting in dark areas like the overhead bin.

The plane took off to a higher altitude with lower air pressure, prompting it to come out to take a breather.
