Internet Prank Quickly Turns Into International Panic, Now Cops Want Answers [VIDEO]

There is a story going around the internet that claims that some guy packed himself in a suitcase and got flown across Australia without buying an airline ticket. He even has a video that shows him being shoved into luggage by his buddies, and then it cuts to him unzipping it from the inside and popping out on a baggage carousel.

Except that it doesn’t show that at all. The airline that this guy claims let this happen has refuted everything he says, effectively shutting down his fake news, point by point. You have to see the video and then read the airline’s response.

At the end of his video clip, he says “I made it from Melbourne all the way to Sydney, I’m just happy to be alive.”

Of course, as soon as the fine folks at the airline became aware of the video, red flags and giant holes started popping up all over Saleh’s video.

 To start with, Tiger Airlines reviewed the security footage of the flight, and say he is clearly visible boarding the plane with the rest of the passengers. But that evidence alone, as irrefutable as it may be, does not help put down Saleh’s basic premise about the airline’s security protocols. So they went further.

The airline released a statement enumerating all the ways that Saleh’s story is horse hockey, saying:

“Firstly, you wouldn’t have been accepted by our automated bag drop machines at 66kg as a friendly staff member would have stepped in to assist.

Secondly, some aircraft have heated baggage holds but the aircraft you were on does not and it gets pretty cold at 36,000 feet so by the time you arrived in Sydney you would have been a popsicle.

Thirdly, we have footage of you boarding the aircraft using your legs.”

The airline is taking Saleh’s video very seriously, because they do not want other, ill-informed people to attempt passage by this means. In a public statement concerning the video the company said:

“The safety and well-being of our staff and customers is always our number one priority and was not compromised at any time. The airline industry in Australia is highly regulated and has amongst the strictest standards in the world. Tigerair Australia has a zero tolerance for inappropriate behaviour and has investigated this matter as a priority.”
