Strangest Luggage Ever?

Recently I ventured off to Colombia for work. On my way back through customs, in Miami, I happened upon this little princess. I’m guessing she has no status since her bag tag doesn’t have a priority label.


This takes Colombian Plastic Surgery to a whole new level.

It made me think, what is the weirdest baggage you have ever seen on a flight?

  1. At PDX, I saw 4 new tires come out of the baggage claim. We flew Southwest, and a man and his wife had purchased new tires for their son’s car, and checked them as baggage – 2 free tires/bags each!

    That was my first thought actually!
    Then I just assumed that it was Shakira without makeup.

    That’s a good one. I guess depending on the size, they would be less than 50 lbs.

  4. This story bears surprising resemblance to my own “strange luggage in Columbia” story. On my bachelor party (in Cartagena Columbia), one of my buddies bought a life-sized stuff goat at a street stall. Needless to say, when he tried to bring the goat back to the states (as a “carry-on goat”???), they wouldn’t let him. So he abandoned the goat at the security line in CTG. Within 15 seconds, 4 or 5 security guards were circling the goat…not because they were concerned about the security, but because they were arguing about who got to take the goat home.

    Pics or it doesn’t count? Here you go:

  5. Kurt,

    That is a made for the movies moment. The story is so over the top that I would have believed it without the pic. Thanks for sharing.
