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 Dean Stinson. The high-flyer said he concocted the plan “just for a laugh“, adding he was pleasantly surprised that his precious cargo survived the four-hour journey to Perth.
