    Around 1,000 ticketless passengers attempted to board an American Airlines flight in Texas, causing commotion in the cabin and delaying the jetliner for more than an hour, NBC News reported.

    A queen bee had flown into the airliner's wing while it was waiting to depart Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport on Wednesday and swarm of bees followed, according to Karin McCay, a reporter at NBC station KCBD.

    Experts in protective suits had to be called in to remove them.
