A man checked a single can of beer as his only luggage onboard Saturday’s Qantas flight QF777 from Melbourne to Perth. Melbourne – Perth is a cross country flight in Australia, about the distance of New York – Denver.
The beer was “tagged and sent off to be loaded onto the plane with the rest of the baggage,” with ground staff in Melbourne apparently taking some photos before boarding the checked bag.
On the other end of the journey the passenger waited for his luggage at baggage claim — prepared to file a missing luggage claim — “when he saw a group of people standing around the baggage claim area with their phones out” telling him his precious cargo had arrived!
“Sure enough there she was, alone on the carousel proudly making her way around. And there I was in my flanno and RMs to greet her. It was perfection.”

What makes the decision to check the Emu Export lager especially strange is that Australian domestic flights do not have limits for liquids in carry on bags (unless you’re on a domestic flight departing from an international terminal).
