Last week, at the Manchester Airport, a cleaning crew found a suspicious package is a US Airways jet’s bathroom. One of the cleaners took it into the airport and gave it to police. (Apparently airline cleaners have considerably more guts than brains.) They immediately determined that it wasn’t explosive in the conventional sense, but still dangerous: the slightly-smaller-than-brick-sized package contained cocaine.
While this does make me a little concerned (whenever I travel, I fly out of Manchester), at least it wasn’t on a Southwest plane.
And apparently this is the third time a suspicous package has been found on a US Airways plane. I wonder if the smugglers are engaging in profiling?
But then again, what self-respecting drug smuggler would fly Southwest? And how would they find a place to hide drugs? Those planes make phone booths look luxurious.
