Woman faked pregnancy to avoid paying for overweight luggage at airport


Travel journalist Rebecca Andrews took packing tricks to a another level, when she created a fake pregnancy bump out of the clothes and laptop charger that she could not fit in her bag in an attempt to avoid avoid paying excess baggage fees for overweight luggage.

Andrews was going to board her domestic Australian flight with Jetstar, when she slid her laptop down the back of her stretchy jumpsuit. She’d already gone through security and though she had succeeded, adding several layers on over the top.

However, the laptop sold her out when an air steward noticed it sticking out of Andrews jacket. She was fined Ksh.6,500 for the incident.

“I think it is the laziest idea I have ever had. A woman’s body can create human life, so exploiting this unique ability is quite an uncreative hack, really.” she told CNN.

This was not his first trick, as she said she done several before successfully although without a laptop, but a layer of clothes. She also told CNN that she does not feel guilty about it, noting that a woman has the rights over her body.

“I think a woman has the right to do whatever she wants with her body, including faking a pregnancy made out of laptop wires,” she says.
