Airports are bustling, active centers of travel that see thousands of different people a day. Although every airport serves the same purpose, each one has its own interesting culture and environment created by its employees and guests. With so many people coming and going, there are bound to be some interesting, wild, and sometimes annoying stories from the people who work at airports day in and day out. We’ve put together a fun list of airport staff confessions, outrageous passenger behavior, and little-known airport secrets that we think everyone should know – incidents people couldn’t help but share online. Next time you’re getting ready to fly, be sure to keep some of these in mind!
The Carry-On Dilemma
What is with people and not understanding how many carry-ons you can get inside the cabin? They either hog the overhead luggage cabin or spill their belongings on the floor. You know the flight attendants will be swooping in, trying to make this person realize their folly, but what can they do if someone gets creative, as this person did?
We understand that most airplanes have somewhat odd carry-on policies, but thinking that you can sneak in something like a cello? They even bought a seat for the instrument. We’re guessing they think they’re better than other carry-on spillers because they’re giving their instrument the chic treatment it deserves, and it does not work. Also, you know for a fact that someone on that immigration crew got fired that day.
