Earlier in the year, a flight from Dublin to Spain was forced to make a u-turn over fears that an animal was stuck in the jet.
The Aer Lingus flight was forced to head back to the capital over fears that a hare had been sucked into one of jet's engines during take-off.
Crew onboard at the time informed air traffic controllers that they had hit two "rabbits or hares" on departure.
