A mynah bird appeared in the business class section of a Singapore Airlines flight after 12 hours of take-off last week.
The airlines on Monday gave their confirmation that the bird was eventually captured on the January 7 flight, USA Today reported.
"It was subsequently caught by cabin crew with the assistance of some of the passengers on board," USA Today quoted spokesperson James Bradbury-Boyd as saying.
The mynah was turned over to "animal quarantine" authorities at London's Heathrow Airport, Bradbury-Boyd added.
The bird native to southern Asia has aroused confusion regarding how it ended up on the London-bound flight or where it spent the first 12 hours of the trip.
A Facebook video, it can be seen making itself comfortable on top of a headrest before a flight attendant makes a failed attempted to grab it, BBC reported.
