Dean, an Aussie was travelling to Perth on Qantas flight QF777. His beloved beer was tagged and sent off to be loaded onto the plane with the rest of the baggage, which the Melbourne ground staff happily did.
My mate works at the airport and we hatched the plan as a laugh — I half didn’t expect it to come out the other end.
But when it did it was sent out well in front of all the other luggage, so the baggage handlers obviously appreciated it.
A proud moment and a victory lap.
