A man from Australia, who boarded a plane traveling from Melbourne to Perth on Saturday, decided to ‘only pack the essentials’ so he checked in a single can of beer as his luggage.
He was travelling on Qantas flight QF777 and he insisted that his can of Emu Export lager comes with him. The beer was labeled and sent off to be loaded onto the plane with the rest of the flight luggage.
Dean, the man who thought of this strange idea, was exhilarated when he saw his beer can reach the conveyor belt at luggage claim and told the Daily Mail he wasn’t sure that his lone can would make it.
“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,” he said.
“But when it did it was sent out well in front of all the other luggage, so the baggage handlers obviously appreciated it.”
Dean said that when he saw a bunch of people standing with their phones out around the baggage claim area, he immediately knew that his special luggage was there.
“Sure enough there she was, alone on the carousel proudly making her way around. And there I was in my flanno and RMs to greet her. It was perfection,” he explained.
He was ready to file a lost luggage report if the can didn’t show up, but obviously, there was no need for that as everything went in perfect order.
According to Peter Ellis of travel site FlightMood, seeing a can of beer on the airport conveyor belt is not as uncommon as you might think.
“Export being checked in as baggage is not an uncommon sight so I wasn’t even surprised,” he told Daily Mail. “I’ve seen Export being flown as far as Greece — now that’s dedication!”
