Miami - For some people, rats are disgusting animals. But it was not a flight attendant for American Airlines. On a flight to Miami, he alleged hid mice in stockings and underwear.

During the flight from St Martin to Miami, another flight attendant also viewed Giambattista take food by stealth into the glass. Food is thought to rat.

Giambattista was admitted as an animal lover. But he denied having fed rats on the plane.
The food he brought in the glass, is to yourself, because he did not want to seem're eating in front of the passengers.
