Australian Traveler Checks a Single Can of Beer as His Luggage
Now that's traveling 'light.'
Packing for a plane ride can be difficult -- especially with all of the laws today that limit the amount of fluid you can take on board.
However, that didn’t stop Australian traveler Dean Stinson from thinking outside the box. The eager Australian passenger who flew on a Qantas flight from Melbourne to Perth on Saturday checked his light luggage before going through security and boarding his plane. Although when we say light, we’re not talking about weight -- instead, Stinson checked a can of Australian light beer, Emu Export.
Turns out, the stunt wasn’t because Stinson wanted a can of his favorite beer available to him right off the plane. As he told Australian media company Unilad, “My mate works at the airport and we hatched the plan as a laugh -- I half didn’t expect it to come out the other end.”
And a laugh it was. It arrived out on the baggage claim carousel before any other items. Stinson immediately knew the plan was a success when he saw a group of travelers crowded around.
"I rocked up to the baggage carousel late. There was no luggage out yet but everyone was milling around and had their phones out so I was pretty sure I knew what was going on. Sure enough there she was, alone on the carousel proudly making her way around."
