    There was a guy in the past three years who, if I remember correctly, mailed himself in a wooden crate and was appropriately stowed in storage.

    He got out upon landing and was arrested, but had no clue how cold it gets up there.

    A sad tale, if that turns out to be the case here too.

    I don't know why anyone would think this would even work. cruising at 37,000 feet, over the north pole.. yeah, that'll work

    Well, this guy won't be arrested. He has that going for him. The story said it gets to minus-50 F in the cargo hold during that flight.

    If he had managed to get in the rear bin of the B-777, it's pressurized and temp controled so they can ship animals and the like.

    UPDATE: Turns out the guy was a fan of Ice Cube and when he realized he could not BE his idol, he did the next best thing.
