Upside: He skipped the annoying AA credit card hard sell flight attendants have to do. Every flight.

Agreed. Especially since outside air temperature can easily be -70* F. at typical jetliner altitudes.

Trump on the Wednesday following the election should say: “I want EVERY young black man to report to the nearest VA hospital/clinic lab THIS Sunday to take a drug test. Bring $20 with you and an ID. Don’t bother if you are not clean but if you ARE I will promise you a JOB before the end of the year. Give up your Sunday football game. Don’t worry about the lab technicians being off. They are government employees. I assure you that the place will be staffed. Those that don’t test or test positive will get another chance after all the others are employed. Just be patient and wait in line.

On his flight back, he was stowed in an overhead compartment.

He damn sure would have, if his coworkers had a say.

At least he didn't try to hitch a ride in the landing gear housing.You do that and your quick frozen body falls on the roof of some building near the destination airport.

Something similar happened up here at SeaTac on an Alaska Airlines flight last year, I believe. The guy was not drunk, but he was very tired. He also was soon unemployed.

Man-turned-luggage makes it to Chicago.

And on American Airlines, too!

He's lucky they didn't lose him.

Probably more comfortable in there versus being in coach.
