Man checked in 1 can of beer for flight, wins internet

In what could only be described as the ultimate boozer’s troll on Australian airline Qantas, one passenger had successfully checked in 1 can of beer for flight. Best of all? The passenger in question had documented it all on his social media channels.

The passenger is question was identified as Australian national Dean Stinson. He had reportedly concocted the ambitious plan with another unnamed friend as a practical joke according to BBC’s report.

Astonishingly, Qantas fulfilled beer lover Stinson’s unusual request. The airline’s ground staff did all their due processes, tagging the single can upon receiving it at the counter in Melbourne airport before it went through the loading conveyor and loaded aboard by baggage handlers.

The process repeated itself when Stinson and the flight arrived at its Perth destination without a hitch, with the can making its way through the arrivals baggage carousel in pristine condition as well. In fact, it was the first item to roll out onto the flight’s baggage carousel too.

Dean Stinson reportedly expressed his delight to local press upon receiving his favourite can of lager intact, even adding “it was in perfect condition.” Despite the unusual request, airline Qantas did not incur any additional charges for the act as well.

In response to this, Qantas’ spokesperson said it did not encourage other travellers to follow suit. He added, “This guy’s done it and he’s won the internet for the day, so we’re happy to move on.”

So, anyone want to try this challenge on any of our local airlines?
