This is a question Airport Stories

Back when I was a moody teenager I took a cheap flight that involved changing planes and having to go through security again. My bags were pre-checked so, when I set off the metal detector, I honestly said to the security guy that I had no idea what had set it off.

Until, that is, he searched me and found the metal knife and fork stamped "KLM" I'd nicked off the previous flight.

Tell us your best airport stories.

We'll need your souls..
A few months ago a friend and I had to travel across the country from Florida to Minnesota. We got our tickets printed with no problems, and went to check our baggage. Everything went fine, except they seemed to be a bit too enthusiastic about making sure that they checked each and every item in my luggage. No problems there. Then the security guard points to a little code that had been highlighted on our tickets, and the following conversation ensued. At least he had a sense of humor.

"Sorry to inform you, but you've been 'selected'."


"Yes. You see, in order to keep the planes from crashing, we need a sacrifice or two every few days. You've both been selected for sacrifice. Once you get upstairs, they're going to take your souls, but it cause you to miss your flight."

What he meant was that we both got to be strip searched, which has happened to me on every subsequent flight. Joy.
