Airline sacrifices goats to appease sky god
Tue Sep 4, 3:41 PM ET

KATHMANDU (Reuters) - Officials at Nepal's state-run airline have sacrificed two goats to appease Akash Bhairab, the Hindu sky god, following technical problems with one of its Boeing 757 aircraft, the carrier said Tuesday.

Nepal Airlines, which has two Boeing aircraft, has had to suspend some services in recent weeks due the problem.

The goats were sacrificed in front of the troublesome aircraft Sunday at Nepal's only international airport in Kathmandu in accordance with Hindu traditions, an official said.

"The snag in the plane has now been fixed and the aircraft has resumed its flights," said Raju K.C., a senior airline official, without explaining what the problem had been.

Local media last week blamed the company's woes on an electrical fault. The carrier runs international flights to five cities in Asia.

It is common in Nepal to sacrifice animals like goats and buffaloes to appease different Hindu deities.

[And Shannon, given all your excellent work on Animal Cruelty laws, did you include a defense for such matters?]

"Ladies and gentlemen, the captain has asked me to inform you that we've encountered a minor technical problem with the aircraft that, for your safety, has temporarily prevented us from taking off. Would the gentleman in seat 12B please bring the yak in seat 12A to the cockpit?"

Your beverage on this flight will be fresh goat milk, which can be served chilled or at body temperature.

Just remember this post next time you call your out-sourced technical service number for your computer. When you ask the Indian technical service rep to solve your problem, think of Nanny and Billy.
