This is called in-flight entertainment.

After all the snakes were not poisonous.

I certainly hope Samuel L. Jackson was on the plane. He would have taken care of that in a hurry. What a national treasure.

They were, but chewed through it to get some real "PEOPLE FOOD", OR they got into the S-h-i-t tank, could you imagine that , taking a good dump from eating those dreaded peanuts on the flight and one of those baby pythons coming up through the hole a putting the squeeze on some poor guys nutz while taking a dump!!

It was a typo, it was snacks on a plane, they have introduced them on long flights.

the facts come out that they were only 15cm long baby pythons and that the other ones in the box must have eaten them

sounds very unexciting really, but made a good headline

Nope this was not Air force one with Pelosi and Obama both on the trip. Now that would be a truly venomous flight.
