(NEW YORK) — What’s the last thing you left on a plane? Leaving behind something you really care about, like your glass eye or pet parrot, can be a major bummer.
Yes, those are just a couple of the strange items left behind by airplane passengers, according to a new survey of 700 cabin crew members across 83 countries by travel web site Skyscanner.com.
Someone left her wedding dress behind. And along those same lines, one crew member found a written marriage proposal. There was the box of dried fish one passenger left behind. And there was the bag of diamonds. Then there was underwear. Yes, underwear.
And what about those smaller, less bizarre items? Almost a quarter of the crew surveyed have found a lost passport, which is even higher than the number of phones (23 percent) and books (21 percent) left behind.
