Things You Can't Do on a Plane: Vol. 18

You might think that after Volume 1Volume 2Volume 3Volume 4Volume 5Volume 6Volume 7Volume 8, Volume 9Volume 10Volume 11Volume 12Volume 13Volume 14Volume 15Volume 16 and Volume 17 of Things You Can't Do on a Plane, that we'd have exhausted the list of things you can't do on a plane. Nope! The list grows daily.

Here are three more things I've recently learned that you cannot do on a plane:

  • Attempt to smuggle 49 live reptiles in your luggage on an international flight. Passengers may not pack 31 spiny-tailed lizards and 18 geckos into their suitcase. This is true even if the passenger claims the reptiles are his "personal food supply" and offers to bite off the head of one to prove it. CONSEQUENCE: The passenger will face a fine of several thousand euros for transporting protected animals. The reptiles will be taken to a local veterinarian to be cared for.
  • Attempt to sneak 115 "oven-ready iguanas" into the United States from Mexico. Passengers may not attempt to bring a cooler into the U.S. filled with 159 pounds of the beheaded, skinned, and deboned bodies of 115 green iguanas. CONSEQUENCE: Passenger must serve 24 months in prison.
  • Attempt to board a plane while carrying an 18-month old child who is on the "no-fly" list. Passengers may not board a flight with a child who is flagged as being on the "no-fly" list. CONSEQUENCEEntire family will be removed from flight and ordered to speak with TSA, which will blame the whole thing on the airline.
