Air­line pas­sen­gers help­ing them­selves

Toronto Sun - - TRAVEL -

What do pas­sen­gers steal from planes? Any­thing not bolted down.

Among the items snatched from com­mer­cial flights: Cof­fee mugs, cut­lery, blan­kets and life jack­ets. Life jack­ets? Yes, life jack­ets. Other stolen items:

Air­sick­ness bags: Trav­ellers like Cle­mens Sehi col­lect them. “It’s kind of a tra­di­tion for me to take the bags with me as a sou­venir,” he says.

Table set­tings: Ob­vi­ously, plas­tic dish­ware is fine to take, but reg­u­lar table set­tings are nor­mally a no-no. When it doubt, ask.

Pil­lows and blan­kets: As a gen­eral rule, you can keep the blan­kets un­less a flight at­ten­dant tells you that you can’t, ei­ther with a spo­ken no­tice or a writ­ten one.
