Parrots on a plane

An international survey of 700 cabin crew by travel search site Skyscanner found that people leave some pretty weird shit on planes.

The frog chose the Exit Row on Air France quite deliberately as he didn’t trust the other passengers to save him in an emergency

The list includes:

  • Live parrot
  • Glass eye
  • Falcon
  • Prosthetic leg
  • A bag of sand
  • A clog
  • Box of dried fish
  • One shoe
  • Wedding dress
  • Bag of diamonds
  • Wig
  • Bag of onions
  • Toupee
  • Handcuffs
  • Double bass
  • One egg (without packaging)
  • Frog
  • Underwear
  • Written marriage proposal

My favourite thing on this list is the frog. What kind of person travels with a live amphibian?!

Have you ever left anything on a plane? I left my 1950’s style Dior glasses on a flight between Helsinki and Singapore. Cue: heartbreak. I loved those glasses.

  1. Who leaves their prosthetic leg behind?! Like, how did you not notice you were missing it?

  2. On a flight from Amsterdam to Atlanta about ten years ago with my wife, we were the only passengers in First Class and we had a ball. But I started getting a little paranoid because I’d secreted about 200 grams of a variety of hashishes that I had purchased in the hash houses. Though I’d smuggled the same amount over a dozen times before, I decided to abandon this one and shoved the packages down the bathroom’s trash bin.

    In getting off the plane, we were greeted by very happy looking Customs agents who too one look at us, made a joke, and then waved us through. I was almost ready to go back on the plane!!!!

  3. I left a text book recently… Noticed the second I was out the door and thankfully they went and grabbed it for me – but there was no way they’d let me back on!
