Terminal stupidity

Biggest belly laugh of the day at MSN Towers came with news that an elderly woman misread instructions while checking in at Sweden’s main Stockholm airport and was whisked down a baggage chute after she placed herself instead of her luggage on the belt.

Fortunately, the old dear sustained no injuries and made it out in time to catch her flight to Germany.

    God, how could you misread instructions that tell you how to board a plane? Bet it was good fun on the slide though, bet she had a right old hoot!

  11. Minna says:

    So what were the check in staff doing at the time?

  12. Dex says:

    I worked in aviation for donkeys years in various jobs. It is not that uncommon for folk to ride down the chute. In the old days the chute would have been monitored by a human being who would have hit the emergency stop button, alas in these days of mechanisation she would have been seen as just another item of baggage. Incidentally there is also usually a seperate chute for items termed as \’out of gauge\’ items too big, bulky, oddly shaped, fragile and/or heavy. Pity her travelling companion didn\’t shove her down there, the landing would have been softer.
    I seem to recall an infant or small child being \’checked in\’ recently and the parents trying to claim a hefty compensation package.
    And yes, it can be fun. In my late teens I worked at LHR and the things we used to get up to on night shifts included \’belt shuting\’.

  13. Laura says:

  20. Kerri says:

    It was an automatic baggage drop off point so it was unmanned – hence no one stopped her.
