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.

"Nobody's" Perfect
I was on a business trip to Townsville (North Queensland, Australia) and had a few hours stop over in Brisbane airport. Seeing as though I was greatly important to the airline I was allowed into business lounge.

I am a huuuuuuggggeee rugby fan, and so I was reading the autobiography of a one John Eales (ex-Wallabies Captain).

I was totally imersed in the book when I felt a tap on the shoulder.
"Good book?" the bloke asks.

I look up only to see the great man himself. Composing myself I reply.
"Nah shit - seems to drag on with no purpose."
(But really its a good read).

He laughed heartily. Got me a beer and we talked for an hour before he had to catch his flight to Sydney.

Nice fella. He even signed my copy.
