I pretended to be pregnant to smuggle an extra bag onto a £31 flight – my ‘bump’ & I were even allowed to pre-board

 A TikTok video went viral of a woman sneaking an extra bag onto an airplane in this hilarious hack.

TikTok user @miniadvantures aka Ashlin posted a video of herself hiding a drawstring bag under her jumper to fake a pregnant belly in order to avoid paying a fee for too many carry-ons.

Using the popular “Nobody’s Gonna Know” audio, Ashlin wrote on the video, “When you get a $44 (£31) flight but can only bring a backpack.”

She then shows herself boarding the flight, writing, “It worked.”

In a follow-up video, the TikToker informs viewers that her illusion worked so well, she was able to pre-board the flight as a “pregnant” person.

The original video has gathered 13.2 million views and 2.7 million likes.

Some questioned how she got through security, or what would happen if she wanted to take off her top, but most viewers thought Ashlin’s hack was “genius” and let her know in the comments.

One viewer wrote, “Saving this for next time I fly!”

Ashlin’s travel hack could help some women take advantage of cheap flights before prices rise as the pandemic comes to an end, allowing for more travel.

However, we can’t advocate this hack – it is, of course, illegal and we don’t recommend you do it.
