A PASSENGER filmed the moment when a plane full of people were delighted to see a French bulldog puppy "roaming the aisles" during a flight.
Pilot announcements over the plane's PA system to find the pet's owner were initially unsuccessful, with the pup's human companion fast asleep.
Meanwhile, the dog was seen making its way up and down the aircraft, pestering other passengers for attention.
Eventually, the owner awoke to discover that their furry friend had wriggled free and gone exploring.
Video footage shared to Twitter by Amanda Dukes, reporter for Orlando TV station WESH TV (@AmandaDukesWESH), showed the pooch being escorted back to its owner by a flight attendant, receiving plenty of scratches and pats along the way.
Amanda wrote: "This is hysterical! "On my @SouthwestAir flight a #frenchbulldog was roaming the aisles.

"Despite flight attendant announcements, no one was claiming him. Finally, his owner woke up from a nap and we were directing this pup back to his seat."
Some people were delighted to see the dog on the plane, with Twitter user Abby C writing: " Now that is a sweet distraction, a little unexpected comfort pooch on the flight. We should all be so lucky to have one on our flight."
However, another user called Lil Hobson was less impressed, saying that everyone on the flight was fortunate not to be attacked by the dog.
She wrote: "1) They were lucky it seemed to be mostly dog-lovers. 2) Was the dog supposed to be out of his travel kennel? 3) Luckily it was a nice dog – someone could've been bitten (yes, even by this type of dog)."
