"Questioned then released".   Yeah, try that at LaGuardia, mate.

I wouldn't see the funny side, if I'd been in that airport.

few years ago, I was on an easyjet flight to ibiza... yes it was as bad as it sounds.
there was quite a lot of turbulence, seat belt sign on, very firmly instructed to take our seats.  and one guy just would not stop dicking about and sit down.

flight was met on the tarmac by the cops, and off he was taken.
good, little asshole.  he was so farking annoying.  most annoying aspect of a very annoying flight.

A little funny, I guess. If it was me, I would not delay the passengers. Instead, I would terrify them with tales of suicidal pilots and airplane engineering disasters.

At LaGuardia they'd catch on immediately if you joked that the flight was only six hours delayed.

"We'll take off in a few minutes, folks. Just have to find my glasses. Must be in the bar. Oh, and I'm your pilot."

I love how it's called a tannoy in British.

Because they're tannoying.

Once in the airport I tend to tune out the loudspeaker after about the second "don't leave your bags unattended"

Flying out from Rome to NY I had to share a seat in the smoking section of the plane. This rap artist booked seats for his backup singers who were asthmatic in the same section then demanded new seats for his entourage. Somehow his hat got misplaced and the fun ensued.  He was very annoyed and wanted to know who had stolen his kanga hat.At Kennedy I got into a stretch and as I was leaving the terminal I tipped the kanga at him and watched his eyes 👀 bugging.

The white zone is for immediate loading and unloading of passengers only. There is no stopping in the red zone.

Nobody at the airport has any sense of humor whatsoever.

Should have removed him from the airport and criminal trespassed him.
You want to catch a flight, go do it somewhere else.

On my last flight we nearly had the same situation.  Apparently some lady further back in the plane just would not stay seated for some reason.  The flight attendenant gave her three increasingly stern warnings over the speaker.  The final warning was something to the effect of "we are next in line for takeoff and if you are not in your seat we can't takeoff and will lose our place in line".

At that point we had been waiting on the tarmac for a good 25 minutes, and glancing behind us I counted at least 8 more planes in line after us. I suspect this threat of a much longer delay either got her to settle down or inspired those around her to encourage her to do so.

It's not so much that they don't have a sense of humor, it's that any possible joke or funny thing you could say to them they've already heard 50 times a day every day since they've worked there.

Amateur. You record yourself first and then you play it back incognito. People will see nothing except you just standing there with your arms crossed and your lips not moving.

Waaaaay back in '01, a few days after 9/11, there was a story about some college age kid who was flying out of like Seattle (Actually, probably flying in) . Some airport with a monorail.

Anyway, he notices a panel on the wall of the monorail that has not been secured. Inside there are 3 buttons that control the automated monorail. Forward, reverse, and stop. This kid plays around with his own toy monorail for about 45 minutes or so, and then Five-Oh shows up. They didn't arrest him, but he wasn't allowed to fly that flight. So his mom bought another ticket, he came back a few hours later, and the gate agent noticed his book cover:

Having recognized him as "trouble" from before, she decided that this was a book apparently about how to blow up airplanes, and no amount of synopsis reading could convince them otherwise. Dude was once again denied a flight.

And back then, last I'd heard was that even though they didn't physically take him into custody, he was still facing potential charges.

Be funnier to do the opposite.
"Good news! Flight 234 to Gatwick will be arriving at Gate 7 two hours ahead of schedule. Boarding begins in FIFTEEN minutes!"

His friends were extremely worried about him and they just took him away and didn't know what to do or whether to leave him.

Yes, leave him for sure . Sorry but don't be stupid when traveling.

I hope his prophecy was fulfilled -- for himself.

The accident in the book was caused by the pilot letting his kid fly, right? Been thirty years since I read it.

A year after 9/11 I flew from Heathrow to the US. Waiting to board and browsing the bookstore in departure I saw a pile of a book called "Jihad", with that title in huge letters on the cover. I thought who the hell is going to board a plane and sit there reading a book with Jihad in huge letters on the cover.
