    A couple tried to check a dead cow onto a transatlantic flight, Virgin Atlantic has revealed in a list of the most bizarre items passengers have attempted to bring onto flights.


    The couple in question arrived at New York’s JFK airport with the carcass wrapped up on a trolley and attempted to board a flight to Heathrow airport in London with the dead cow.

    Unsurprisingly, staff refused to allow the pair to check in their bizarre luggage.

    It’s not just dead cows airport staff have had to deal with, passengers have also tried to bring on items such as car engine, a tarantula and one woman even wanted to bring her own bath onto the plane – again at JFK airport.

    A survey by Virgin Atlantic revealed a giant wheel of cheese and cutlery stolen from a previous flight were also among the items brought in to airports. One couple even tried to check in a bag of sand, sea and water to help themselves remember the holiday in Grenada during which they fell in love.

    Commenting on the findings, director of corporate communications Greg Dawson, said: ‘Virgin Atlantic check in staff see thousands of passengers on a daily basis but every now and then, a passenger will arrive at check in with something you would never expect – it certainly brightens up their day.’
