This is too damn cute. Penguins Pete and Penny, ages 6 and 12, were free to roam the first class aisle on Delta Flight 486 from Atlanta to New York. ”Is anyone here allergic to penguins?” the captain said over the loudspeaker, “No? Alright, we have a surprise for you.”
According to Yahoo!, once the plane reached a cruising altitude of 30,000 feet and the seatbelt signs were turned off, out came Pete and Penny! The captain warned the passengers that although they could take pictures of the penguins, they were not allowed to touch them.
Pete and Penny were on their way to the premiere of Discovery Channel’s Frozen Planet, narrated by Alec Baldwin. After a screening at Lincoln Center tonight (March 9th), the penguins will party down at a “polar-themed” with Baldwin, Dustin Hoffman and Glenn Close.
