There’s packing light — and then there’s packing light beer.
A hop head checked in a single can of beer as his luggage on a flight — and the airport staff happily tagged the tin and put it on the plane, according to a new report.
“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,” the man, who identified himself only as Dean, told Unilad.
“But when it did, it was sent out well in front of the other luggage so the baggage handlers obviously appreciated it.”
The Australian ale fan put his lone can of Emu Export on a Qantas flight from Melbourne to Perth on Saturday, the site reports.
Dean said that he knew his precious cargo had arrived when he saw a group of people snapping pictures at the baggage claim area.
“Sure enough there she was, alone on the carousel, proudly making her way around,” he said of his beloved brew — adding that he had planned to file a lost luggage report had it not turned up.
