The budget airliner was flying in from Baltimore-Washington International Airport when they encountered the leisurely paced reptile.

However, those on board did not seem to be too upset by the animal.

One Orlando man who recorded a video of the creature crossing simply called the scene normal for his state.

“Only in Florida… a gator held up our plane crossing the runway at MCO on the way home from DC,” he wrote on Facebook.

Several people agreed in the comments, calling the incident “Typical Florida.”
