Passenger banned from flight over viral packing trick: ‘Stop listening to the internet’

Don’t be a hack at the airport.

Many airlines have rules and limitations on what items can be carried on the plane and what exactly is considered carry-on baggage.

A traveler at Orlando International Airport tried to get around paying for a checked bag by placing all of his belongings in a pillowcase and claiming it was nothing more than a pillow.

TikTok user @natashaorganic shared a clip of the passenger arguing with security about her “pillow,” a situation that went so far as to involve the police.

“Stop letting these sites, social media, give you advice and suggestions because sometimes they won’t work,” he said in the video.

“This guy was trying to bring in a pillowcase full of clothes and other items, which he said was just a pillowcase,” he said. “And the guy was like, brother, everyone can see that ain’t no damn pillow, what’s up.”

After airport staff gave the boy the option to pay to check his items, he waited “until they closed the doors” to agree to pay.

The man tried to push himself onto the plane, “and they said, brother, stand back, we gave you your chance and you didn’t pay for it.”

He added that they eventually called the police on the boy who was then escorted out.

“So stop listening to the Internet,” he concluded.

People expressed their thoughts in the comments, shocked to see someone take such a big risk at an airport and refuse to back down.

“The airport is the only place where I make sure I am a model citizen. Aren’t people afraid of crime and the no fly list?” asked one user.

“I will fight anyone anywhere anytime, but never at the airport. Getting off the ‘no fly list’ is worse than a bad credit score,” said another.

“I come to the airport BEHAVIOR CORRECTLY. One place you won’t find me is the no fly list,” someone said.

“I’m an airport employee and when I saw that original video I thought lol this will never work. happy to see it come to fruition,” noted one alleged airport worker.
