Someone up in ACY got pics of the NEO that ate a Pterodactyl yesterday and RTO’d. I cannot get over how stupid some of the people in the videos were though as they rummaged in the overhead bin and repeatedly asked “do we take bags?”. No, it’s repeated multiple times and in print. pic.twitter.com/CeHVWL19kt
