Interestingly, many people have also argued that the passenger can have different abilities. Burke, however, ruled out the possibility, saying he was carrying his own bag. “The photographer confirms that she saw him getting on and off the plane, carrying his own bag. He just likes to watch TV barefoot, ”Burke tweeted.
