The model asked TSA if she can bring the dish aboard, and now we’re feeling hungry.
While people have been struggling to get their Emotional Support Animals on flights, the model, super-mum and social-media genius was more concerned about getting an ‘Emotional Support Casserole’ airborne.
On Saturday, Tiegen tweeted American Airlines to ask if she could bring a “casserole dish of scalloped potatoes” instead of carry on luggage on a flight she’d be taking later that day.
If I don’t have a carry-on, can I bring a large ceramic casserole dish of scalloped potatoes on the plane? I am not kidding, is this okay? Is it too blunt/heavy an object? I’ll cry if they throw it away— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) February 24, 2018
Tiegen then referred to her meal as an “emotional support casserole” in a back-and-forth exchange with the airline.
Once Tiegen was given the go-ahead by both TSA and airline, she (or her mum, who knows) rolled up her sleeves and made the dish. And because she’s the queen of Twitter, the whole thing was documented for our entertainment.
The story didn’t end with the creation of the delicious-looking casserole. Thanks to Tiegen’s docu-skills, we got to see them ride off into the distance together… well, through the X-ray machine, at least.
Now, we don’t know about you, but we need an Emotional Support Cuppa.
