AirAsia Flight to Bangkok after discovery of vibrating SEX TOY

A buzzing sex toy caused a five-minute delay to an AirAsia flight to Bangkok on Wednesday, Sept. 28. It was reported that the airport staff heard a loud humming from a green rucksack that they were loading onto the plane. Fearing that it could be a bomb, the airport staff immediately sought the help of bomb disposal experts.

But after checking the rucksack, they found that the disturbing sound just came from a sex toy’s speed dial which was accidentally turned on. The baggage handler, who doesn’t want to be named, took pictures of the sex toy and the silver bullet-shaped vibrator.

“We noticed that the bag was shaking and there was a buzzing noise coming from inside,” said the baggage handler.

“Obviously we were pretty scared because this could have been a bomb or some other explosive device,” he added. “But when the experts arrived, they opened up the package and it was just a sex toy.”

After confirming that the buzzing sound did not come from an explosive device, the airport staff immediately returned the item in the bag.

“We checked it and found it was safe to take on the plane so we put back in the bag.”

Flight FD3438 which was bound to Bangkok’s Don Mueang International Airport was supposed to leave Chiang Mai International Airport in Thailand at 8:25 a.m. — but only took off at 8:30 a.m.

“The flight was delayed by five minutes,” AirAsia spokesman said.

The spokesman added that the sex toy was not confiscated because it was not labeled as an aviation security threat. No further “terror” incidents were recorded.

Even after the flight took off, the passenger who owns the sex toy is uninformed that their item had caused fright and delay in the said flight.

“The passenger is unaware that their bag caused a security alert. I think they would be deeply embarrassed if they found out,” the baggage handler said.

The pictures taken by the baggage handler have been shared to educate passengers.

“I have shared the pictures to make people aware of the dangers of carrying batteries and other items in their checked in luggage.”

“The staff were very observant and went through the proper protocol. Safety issues like this are not something to be taken lightly.”

After the incident, airline officials hope that their passengers would remember to follow general protocol concerning their baggage in order to avoid unnecessary alarm and delays in the future.
