Has anyone funny airport stories
A friend of mine arrived nice and early for the flight to be told you should have been yesterday
Yeah, we had a friend who did that
I've lost my pants running through the airport once.
Lol... sorry I shouldn't laugh.... how awful really.
Oh do tell, you can't just leave it at that.
Ours is funny.. (forgive me for not remembering EXACT details, I'm getting old) We paid for one of those club rooms at Manchester airport, it said on the booking form no shorts allowed. Well we assumed it meant no loud Bermuda shorts or football shiny shorts.... anyway DH wore expensive chino cotton beige shorts that came to his knees... ya know... smart shorts. We were all dressed smartly... for chavs? lol.... The Dragon on the desk wasn't letting him in, no way no how... it wasn't happening.
So Me and DD went in at his insistence because we refused and he said to wait for him. We had our drinks and were chilling and saw that the carpet was very threadbare and that various chewing gum was really holding it together, Hubbys shorts were in better condition than the carpet Grrrrr snobs....
Anyways.. I looked up and saw DH walking towards me grinning, erk, how? As he got closer I saw him wearing LADIES capri trousers that came up his calves tied with a bow on each leg and they were flowery. He'd only gone to Dorothy Perkins and bought trousers hadn't he..... Even the Dragon lady cracked her face into a smile, but she couldn't refuse him could she? He WAS wearing trousers.....
Before we boarded the plane he changed back into his shorts lol. We still crack up remembering it.
that is so funny, I'd love to have been there to see her face
Don't know if this is funny or sad!
Oh what a shame, I guess they just didn't realise.
I once heard an apparently true story concerning a guy aged around 80 or so who arrived at Manchester airport in his car that he had recently had serviced, and asked an official where he should take the car.
Upon hearing that the car park was the best place, the guy inquired about getting it on the plane as he had booked a fly-drive holiday!!!!
Oh bless him.
Esme, that is a priceless story!
Ages and ages and AGES ago, when I was very young, and somewhat dumber than I am now… I was in customs on Bermuda and the customs agent asked me in a very serious tone of voice (you know, how they do) "Do you have any drugs in your cases?" I answered quite solemnly and with a clear voice, "OH YES. YES, I DO have drugs with me."
His face was priceless! He did ask what sort of drugs and I told him, "aspirin, Pepto Bismol tablets, and Benadryl for allergies." He struggled mightily, I'll give him that much, and replied, "You won't need Pepto Bismol here."
Well mine isn't nowhere near as good as the flowery pants story but...
First time I took my mother to Florida. This was in the days before seatback TVs and stuff like that so you had to stock up on reading materials at the airport. Mother spent ages choosing her selection. A couple of shops later she rushes up to me in a panic "I've lost my magazines!!!" I look at her and say "mother, they're in your hand".
Oh and when we went with my brother and family we all got in the lift at Gatwick to go up to the shops and breakfast level. About 10 minutes later we suddenly realised we'd all been so busy being excited that no one had pressed the button and we were still on the ground floor with a large queue forming outside the lift.
Hahahahahaha! Those are pretty funny, too Dawn! The lift in particular.
I did spend the entire flight back from Ireland worrying that "they'd" swipe my Corleggy back from me. I thought I knew I was ok to bring it, but then started to doubt myself. When I got to customs to turn in the little card, he never even GLANCED at what I'd written (and yes, I'd declared the Corleggy). All that worry for not a glance! But I got to keep the Corleggy so not all was lost.
My wife and I flew to belfast and was met by my wife cousin and my wife was in a wheel chair helped by an airport assistant when her cousin gave the assistant a big hug thinking it was me a very embarrassed man
Hahahahahahahaha! Robert! That is wicked funny!
I have a few stories from my travels and working within the airline industry.
A few years ago when terminal 5 was brand spanking new, my wife and I were going to Athens and at that time she was a few months pregnant. Travelling on my staff travel perks we weren't allowed to check in until the last 15 minutes of gate closing. So we finally checked in and ran to security only to find a long queue and a sign at the back indicating it would take 15 minutes from a certain point within the queue. We're got through 15 minutes later and made a dash for our gate. We got to the end of the terminal and seen the escalators going down to our gate. We were excited that we had made it. During our sprint my shoe lace had become loose and got caught in the escalator and I could not free them. After a brief struggle they had ripped apart from the eyelets. But the situation wasn't over. We then discovered the gate was not in sight. But instead a monorail to another satellite building. So we get to the second satellite and start sprinting to our gate and noticed my wife struggling to keep up, and told her to slow down and I'll make a run for the gate. At the end of the building running down the walkway to the aircraft door sweating like a madman and a ripped shoe with barely any lace on. I'm still unsure if they crew felt sorry for us for running all that way with a pregnant wife or whether they seen my ripped shoe with no lace, or both as they upgraded us to club from economy.
I've got a great one but I need more time to type it up than allowed at work. Stayed tuned.........
