Woman fakes pregnancy to escape extra luggage fees


A woman traveling through a Sydney airport was caught pretending to be pregnant to avoid paying extra luggage fees.

According to Metro UK, Rebecca Andrews stuffed clothes to make it look like she had a baby bump, even strapping a laptop to her back.

Her plan was foiled when an actual pregnant mother asked her how far along she was. She drew attention from airport staff when she hurriedly responded and made a loud noise as she was the last person boarding the plane. She then confessed when confronted by the staff.

Andrews is now providing guidelines on how to recreate her stunt and dupe airport staff in a post on the popular travel site Escape.

“I walked very erectly. to the gate and found I was the LAST person to board my flight which was my ONLY mistake,” she writes.
