You Won’t Believe Some Of The Strange Things People Do In Airports

The airport is one of the top places for people watching. There is always someone running towards a gate because they’re late for their flight, or sleeping in an obscure location.

This is the place where your adventure begins at 6 am at a bar eating pizza with a glazed looked all over your face and no one will judge you. Take some time to read about these weird antics people have done at the airport, they’re all gems!

They already delay the lines through security, but leave it to TSA to delay Christmas. Santa probably didn’t get the three-ounce liquid limit memo; hot chocolate thermoses can get big nowadays!

He does look pretty guilty surrounded by all of that security though. So, it might be something a bit more serious than hot cocoa. Hopefully, good old Chris Cringle isn’t smuggling away some poor kid’s gifts! It looks like Santa is on the naughty list this year.

There’s nothing quite like selling out an Etihad Airways flight to a bunch of falcons. Hey, they’re paying customers, so it’s not like the airline is going to say no. Not to mention, the 80 falcons belong to the Saudi Prince, so they’re really not going to deny the transportation request.

They’re so good, too, no one has to be in a cage! Still, not exactly what one expects to see when walking into the cabin of a plane.

Although it’s not a person exactly, a person is definitely responsible for doing this! Turkish airlines might want to think about hiring a new marketing and advertising team. A plane flying into the ground is not exactly something a passenger wants to see before hopping onto their flight.

Talk about bad vibes and mild superstition! The higher-ups for the airline can only hope that people walk by the horrible plane placement on their way to grab some food.

It must be nice to see your grandkids, and nothing says “I’m glad you landed safely” than a beautiful homemade sign. We’re not sure if it was a prank or not, but regardless, we have to hand it to the kids for taking the time to make such a colorful and creative poster! Kudos!

They look so proud of their sign, too. Hopefully, Grandma got as good a laugh out of her grandkids shenanigans as we did!

As weird as it is to whip out a bow and arrow en pointe in the middle of the airport, we have to give credit where it’s due: this girl has some skill!

Most people, aka normal people, have to hold their elevated leg with their opposite arm. But our friend here decided to take TSA’s announcement very seriously and not leave her luggage unattended. Good for her for following the rules. This is still weird, though.

You know that sign was put in place because people were taking longer than three minutes to say goodbye to their loved ones. We can’t really blame them, it’s stressful watching someone you care about leave for a flight.

The being said, it’s also the kind of sign that makes you want to direct a truck to run over. No one should have the power to tell people how long they have to say goodbye!

The good news is that this person’s luggage is never getting stolen. How can someone say that the sushi luggage is theirs if it’s not, their face would never stay straight.

We also appreciate how the bags on the carousel make it look like a giant’s favorite sushi bar. Talk about expensive rolls. Hopefully, the owners remember if they packed their spicy tuna roll or the salmon sashimi luggage this time around.

Excuse me, miss, are you aware that your infant child is about to go through the x-ray machine? We’re not positive, but that could possibly be considered child neglect and would never hold up in a court of law.

Granted, she looks like she’s trying to take her shoes off, and the bins are a somewhat safe place to store a child for a few seconds. Best un-tie those shoes fast, mama, that belt is definitely on the move!

Is it just us, or do these two look oddly like the penguins from Madagascar going on a secret mission? There is probably a rule somewhere that states that all exotic animals need to be accompanied by a certified human at all times.

Therefore, definitely a secret mission to escape the Central Park Zoo and get back to their homeland. Hopefully, someone stops them before they try and fly a plane. That just wouldn’t end well.

Nothing says “dad life” quite like falling asleep while your two young daughters strategically place stickers up and down your arms. At least the little ones are too pre-occupied to run away and get into trouble.

Then again, mom is probably laughing while she takes this picture. She’s probably thinking about how much her husband is going to tear up while pulling those tiny stickers off his arm hair later. Speaking from experience, it won’t be pleasant.

Friends don’t let friends get off a plane dressed as Darth Vader without greeting them as Stormtroopers. Weirdly, no one seems surprised to see the evil sith and his loyal contraband at the airport. Is this a common occurrence? If so, we need to stake out the airport because this seems epic.

Also, this must be the inner circle of friends because we don’t think we’ve ever seen Vader or Stormtroopers look so animated and excited.

No one can blame the guy for wanting to get a bit of shut-eye before getting on a cramped plane, but this is new and he definitely gets an A+ for creativity. It’s so simple and yet so weird. Just turn around on the seat and lie against your luggage.

Looking at the guy sleeping across the chairs behind him, our friend seems to be a bit more comfortable. We would just be scared of our luggage rolling out from underneath us!

Who wouldn’t go squeezing in between all of the armrests, the floor is filthy, after all! The only question is, how in the world is she going to get out?

Getting in is the easy part, but there are bound to be a few cuts and plastic burns by the time she’s able to shimmy her way out of this puzzle. Hopefully, she gets out in time to catch her flight. That would be an awful way to miss a vacation!

Should someone go check to see if this person has a pulse? It looks like a bad crime scene and someone decided to take a picture instead of calling the police. If they are breathing, we can’t really fault them for their bed choice.

The carpeted floor, although disgusting, would definitely be more comfortable than a chair. Especially when you have a bag and jacket to use as a makeshift pillow. Well, hopefully, someone wakes her before her flight!

Someone needs to help this man because he is definitely broken. It almost looks as though the mob hit him with a baseball bat. It would make sense, too. Why else would this guy be wearing purple track pants with high tops and a windbreaker from the late ’90s? He’s clearly up to no good.

At least he looks to be at peace, but we’re still not sure how he doesn’t feel that muscle stretching a ridiculous amount.

Is this pile of luggage giving anyone else anxiety? Not only is the pile a huge mess of a puzzle, but it is also on wheels. That’s a recipe for disaster. We would love to meet the architect of a “missing luggage” person that was able to design this crazy Jenga game.

How on Earth is anyone supposed to claim their luggage? Answer: they’re not. Hopefully, there were no valuable items in the massive crate on the top right!

If the board on the luggage carousel is any indication, it looks like this guy isn’t ready to go home quite yet. He must have had a great time on vacation if he is reliving the moments on a stationary carousel.

Maybe he’s waiting for it to move and that’ll make it feel like an actual wave? We’re not convinced, and it’s not because this guy is trying to surf on a boogie board either.

With the rising popularity of electronic newspapers on tablets and phones, we’ve been curious as to where hard copies of newspapers end up. Looks like we have our answer! They’ve been in airports doubling as blankets and black-out masks.

Not that we can’t blame this man, airports can get very cold and you always want something to cover you up. Maybe this is a lesson for him, always make sure to bring a jacket or blanket to the airport.

This man is not losing his luggage anytime soon. Could you imagine someone trying to steal this suitcase, only to get stopped because they didn’t realize the owner’s entire face is on the side of the bag? Talk about embarrassing.

One recommendation though, maybe smile for the next picture? This photo could literally double a passport picture if you move the random tree out of the way. White background and a straight face, it’s perfect!

When you like an international beer, you have to get it back home. Or, if you want to bypass the can exploding because of cabin pressure, then we recommend not checking a single beer for $30 and maybe think about buying some online.

We’re kind of curious though. This beer must be something special if someone went through the trouble to transport it home. For all the trouble, we wish that they thought to buy an entire six-pack and not one can. Sigh.
