Only pack the essentials when you fly. Essentials like beer.

A man on a Qantas flight from Melbourne to Perth, Australia, decided to check an unconventional (but totally necessary) item as his luggage: a single can of Emu Export beer.

The passenger, who wishes to remain anonymous, checked the single can to be sent through baggage claim, much to the surprise of airport staff.

According to The Daily Mail, the scheme was concocted by a friend who works at the airport.

“We hatched the plan as a laugh — I half didn’t expect it to come out the other end,” he said.

The tiny can was loaded up with other baggage and miraculously made it to the baggage claim conveyor belt in Perth: “It was sent out well in front of all the other luggage, so the baggage handlers obviously appreciated it,” said the passenger.

Although Qantas were happy to accommodate Mr Wicken’s unusual request, the airline said it did not encourage other travellers to follow suit.
