A passenger checked in a can of beer on a Perth-bound flight. This trivial idea was hatched with a friend and bewildered airport staff in Melbourne. Naturally, the guy became a hero!
With such a large number of airlines constantly attempting to nickel and dime travelers by charging for anything and everything, finding peace while flying is a luxury! From paying an insanely hefty amount for more legroom to inflight dinners, if you're presented with the opportunity at a free checked-in bag, you should definitely take it!
And to be completely honest, it doesn't even matter what you check in, as long as it is completely charge-free! It could be an empty bag, overfilled bag, your overly possessive girlfriend or even a beer can for that matter of fact! Along the same lines, one man took the whole idea a little too seriously and did something that can be described as purely heroic!
In what is surely a standout amongst the oddest accounts of recent occasions, an Australian man flying via Qantas Airlines from Melbourne to Perth was not just permitted to check-in a solitary can of beer as his luggage, however, the blend surprisingly landed without any hiccups at its final destination!
Be that as it may, not to pass judgment on the man's most loved style of suds, however, the brew that showed up on the terminal wasn't even some uncommon find or a "good" brew by numerous individuals' standards. It was a straightforward Emu Export, a moderately standard kind of Australian lager.
As indicated by the primary traveler behind the trick – who jokingly decided to just give his name as Dean, in case he is delegated as the new ruler of Australia, – said he evoked the prank with a companion, however, they were suspicious that airport security would actually let them go through with it.
"My mate works at the airport and we hatched the plan as a laugh," he told the DailyMail Australia. "I half didn't expect it to come out the other end," Moreover, a majority of the air terminal representatives were likewise evidently somewhat astounded with the guy's offbeat prank.
Most of them took photographs as the can which was wrapped with a sticky baggage tag twice its size moved along the conveyor belts. Also, truth be told, the brew even appeared to get a touch of special treatment.
Dean said that when it touched base on the carousel in Perth "it was sent out well in front of all the other luggage, so the baggage handlers obviously appreciated it."
Be that as it may, Dean wasn't the only one who was eager to see his can upon landing. He said he knew the can was headed his way on the grounds that he saw a gathering of individuals standing in baggage claim with their phones out, taking photographs and videos of the same. "Sure enough there she was, alone on the carousel proudly making her way around. It was perfection," he concluded.
