    Nice roundup of travel related news in 2011 by the Globe and Mail.

    The "travelers" listed in some of the incidents would be strong contenders for the Darwin Awards.

    I remember the Russian Junior Hockey team incident. Was in Buffalo those days. Those guys really had some fun drinking :)

    Love this one:

    The What's the Buzz Award
    … goes to a tipsy business-class passenger who sneaked two cardboard boxes filled with bees aboard a Yakutia Airlines flight within Russia. He claimed later that the airport deputy director in Blagoveshchensk asked him to deliver them to someone in Moscow. When the plane reached cruising altitude, the bees crawled out, causing passengers to panic. Flight attendants manoeuvred the boxes into a closet and taped the door shut. On arrival in Moscow, the bees were supposedly exterminated with insecticide. But at the plane's next destination, Barcelona, five bees were still alive.
