Australian plane passenger checks in can of beer

A man has successfully checked in a can of beer as his only luggage on a domestic flight in Australia.

The man, identified in media as Dean Stinson, said he and a friend had come up with the idea as a joke.

The can arrived, tagged and unopened, as the first item on the baggage carousel at Perth Airport after a four-hour journey from Melbourne.

The airline, Qantas, said it did not encourage other travellers to follow suit.

“This guy’s done it and he’s won the internet for the day, so we’re happy to move on,” a spokesman said in a statement to the BBC.

That would have been a great ad for the beer company. Too good that he had to check it in.
