Airline passenger hides monkey under hat, smuggles it into NYC airport

"A man smuggled a monkey onto an airplane Tuesday, stashing the furry fist-size primate under his hat until passengers spotted it perched on his ponytail, an airline official said.

The monkey escapade began in Lima, Peru, late Monday, when the man boarded a flight to Fort Lauderdale, Fla., said Spirit Airlines spokeswoman Alison Russell. After landing Tuesday morning, the man waited several hours before catching a connecting flight to LaGuardia Airport."

Holly crud. Wonder what charges and why they didn't notice it during the flight.

I think the monkey needed some freedom so why not hitch a ride to the US.

When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.

What, no ANCFlyer jokes?

Maybe the hat did say something like "US Military - retired" on it although I can't really imagine CSM Pepper with a ponytail.

When this gets booted to Non Av maybe we can get the photoshop out.

Another article - the monkey was already given a name: Spirit. Great marketing, eh?  rotfl

Only on NK could this happen.... I would have loved to been on that flight. I would have played with that little monkey. I wonder if NK charged the man for a Y class ticket?

....Correction....Why didn't TSA Notice it??? Seems their more concerned about making sure 3.5 onces of hand creme doesn't get past security and then they let a monkey by.....guess it show that.TSA stands for...THOUSANDS STANDING AROUND.



Did You Ever Think Freedom Could Be this Bad

Well, considering we are are genetically very similar to many monkeys, what should the TSA have noticed?
