WINNIPEG - A college student recently went viral for travelling with a pool noodle.
Southwest Airlines lets people check two pieces of luggage for free and Sydney Fowls tested the limits of that policy by checking the noodle with her suitcase.
It was part of a $20 bet with her family.
She documented the whole thing on TikTok.
The video got over 11 million views.
Happy about all the publicity, the airline gifted Sydney a new Southwest-branded noodle when she returned hom to Ohio from Florida.
