Medina, who described the incident as a "unique experience," said he captured the snake in a blanket and "gave it some magazines to read."
The plane was given priority landing clearance in Mexico City and members of the city's animal control department came aboard the aircraft to remove the serpent.
"The procedures carried out for this flight are currently being evaluated to determine how the animal entered the cabin and measures have been taken to avoid such incidents in the future," Aeromexico said in a statement to CNN.
