Nepal Airlines may have figured out a solution to those bothersome airport delays--sacrifice a goat:
Following technical problems with one of its aircraft, Nepal's state-run airline has sacrificed two goats in a bid to appease the sky god.

Nepal Airlines sacrificed two goats in front of the troublesome Boeing 757 in an offering to Akash Bhairab, the Hindu sky god.

The carrier, which has two Boeing aircraft, has had to suspend some services in recent weeks because of the problem.

The goats were slaughtered at Nepal's only international airport in Kathmandu in accordance with Hindu traditions, an official said.

"The snag in the plane has now been fixed and the aircraft has resumed its flights," Raju K.C., a senior airline official, told Reuters.

Guess what was then served on the in-flight meal?
