Rich Nigerians Are Importing Pizza from London by Plane, Government Official Claims

The TSA might be sticklers about liquids, but they’re pretty lenient when it comes to food.

 Since you’re allowed to take a live lobster on a plane, you might assume most foods are fair game, but presumably because enough people have asked, the agency’s FAQ includes a specific entry for pizza anyway. Pizzas, you should know, are allowed in checked bags and carry-ons, as long as you’re willing to deal with the jealous glances of seat mates eating their sad bags of pretzels.

According to Nigeria’s minister of agriculture, some Nigerians are taking advantage of those flight allowances by seeking out foreign pizza—and delivering it to Nigeria by plane. “Do you know, sir, there are Nigerians who use their cellphones to import pizza from London?” Audu Ogbeh, said last week during a senate committee meeting on agriculture. “Buy in London, they bring it on British Airways in the morning to pick up at the airport.”
