Window Seat 15 Nov 17

CNN reporter Jessica Ravitz recently compiled an essay on some of the weirder stories she picked up from airport staff.

Among the tales were a family who tried to avoid paying the cost of shipping a relative’s body home to the Dominican Republic, instead electing to prop him up in a wheelchair and claim he was simply feeling a bit under the weather.

Other stories from baggage staff included saving the odd baby at the last minute from conveyor belts and X-ray machines after absent-minded parents bundled them in with their carry-on baggage.

Exotic animals were another common theme from Ravitz’s inquiries, with one airport employee once opening an esky to find a live penguin chilling inside and another coming face to face with a monkey.
