You are assuming TSA even lets him on the plane. And if they do and he goes for the return trip, someone like this comes to check in a bunch of swords there will be questions. He will get a finger up his ass again. Do airlines not have some sort of policy against exceptionally dirty passengers?Very very shallow investigating of greyhoud bus ticket prices for that distance + return trip vs just flying round trip shows that it'd just be cheaper to fly. Is spuds afraid of flying?
Maybe what he needs to take back is too heavy and there will be charges for that, maybe making it not cheaper?
