There’s nothing better than bagging yourself a bargain when it comes to cheap flights to the nearest beach.
But anyone who has ever picked up a plane ticket for less than £50 will know that there’s guaranteed to be hidden costs, and it almost always comes in the form of of baggage.
So, when one crafty traveller managed to bag flights for £31 ($44), which only allowed her to bring a single back-pack, she knew she had to be creative.
TikTok user Ashlin, who goes by the name @miniadvantures, decided to hide her second bag – a drawstring gym bag, under her shirt, creating the illusion she was sporting a little baby bump.
“When you get a $44 (£31) flight but can only bring a backpack,” she wrote, with the iconic “Nobody’s gonna’ know,” playing in the background.
And, lo and behold, it worked! But, not only did Ashlin get away with sneaking an extra carry on bag onto the plane, she even managed to bag early boarding too, thanks to that precious little bump. So sneaky and we love it.
In a follow up clip, Ashlin filmed herself walking onto a completely empty plane, quite clearly being the first one to board, before exposing her gym bag bump in the toilet mirror.
While many people rushed to the comments section to question how she got through security, we can assume that she probably put the bag under her jumper after going through security but before reaching the departure lounge – otherwise she could’ve gotten into a lot of trouble.
Nevertheless, many TikTok users have branded Ashlin a ‘genius’ for her sneaky but clever approach to airport baggage and we’re here for it.
FYI, we’re not advocating you breaking airport rules, so you probably shouldn’t try this one at home.
