The bat made its entrance when the flight was airborne, flying up and down the length of the cabin as seen in this video. While passengers were able to trap it in a bathroom, the plane still returned to Madison, where the little guy evaded authorities. There’s a Batman joke in there somewhere, we’re sure.
