Skyscanner conducted a survey of 700 international cabin crew members from 83 countries to find out the strangest items left on-board. Here are just a few of the most random items that cabin crew listed:

  • Live parrot
  • Glass eye
  • Prosthetic leg
  • A bag of sand
  • One shoe
  • Wedding dress
  • Bag of diamonds
  • Toupee
  • Handcuffs
  • Underwear
  • Written marriage proposal

Check out the full list at Skyscanner here.

More interestingly, the survey noted that important items are left on board too. Almost a quarter (24%) of crew have found a lost passport on board, which is even higher than the number of phones (23%) and books (21%) left behind.
