Passengers aboard a flight in the United States screamed in horror as a bat flapped around in the cabin, before it was trapped "between a book and a cup" and locked up in a bathroom till landing.

A Spirit Airlines statement quoted by Fox News said the stowaway mammal was discovered about 30 minutes into a flight from Charlotte, North Carolina, to Newark, New Jersey.

“It is believed the bat started its journey in Charlotte, flying into an overhead bin while our crews were doing overnight maintenance,” the statement said.

Several passengers captured and shared videos of the bat, initially thought to be a bird, flying in the plane.

One passenger is heard asking, “It’s not a bat, is it?” amid screams of “Oh, my God!”

Peter Scattini, a passenger, said the bat did not make an appearance until about 30 minutes into the flight, unnerving passengers and flight attendants alike.

A Spirit Airlines representative told CNN that animal control officials took the bat off the plane once it landed safely.

"The aircraft was disinfected and searched as a precaution," the representative was quoted as saying. "No one was hurt in this incident, including the bat."
