Australian man checks in a single can of beer on 2700km flight

Australia

Sydney, Australia: A beer-loving Australian man has managed to check-in a can of lager as his only luggage on a domestic flight, with the brew arriving safely thanks to courteous baggage handlers.
To the amusement of ground staff at Melbourne airport, the can of Emu Export Lager was tagged and made its way along the conveyor belt to the plane as the only check-in item for passenger Dean Stinson on Saturday.

The high-flyer said he concocted the plan with a friend who worked at the airport “just for a laugh”, adding he was pleasantly surprised that his precious cargo survived the four-hour journey to Perth.

“I thought it was bloody great!” he told AFP about the safe arrival of the beer. “And it was in perfect condition.”
