An admittedly intoxicated American Airlines baggage handler fell asleep on the job and ended up flying from Kansas City to Chicago in the belly of a Boeing 737.
The employee, who works for American subsidiary Piedmont Airlines at Kansas City International Airport, was working on the ramp for American Flight 363 on Saturday Oct. 27, when he apparently took a nap inside the cargo hold before the flight.
No one noticed him missing, and the plane took off at 5:52 a.m. local time with the worker in the forward cargo hold, airline and law enforcement officials confirmed.
The baggage handler, who has not been identified, wasn't discovered until the plane landed at O'Hare International Airport and parked at the gate just before 7:30 a.m. local time.

Even if we have to leave you behind.

American Airlines is making it tougher for passengers to reach their destinations when the carrier delays or cancels flights for maintenance, weather and other reasons.

American’s new policy, no longer permits airport agents to rebook coach passengers on competitors during what are called irregular operations.

Is Mr. Parker working with us or against us?
