Remember the movie Airport? Ada Quonset, little old lady, habitual stowaway just for the thrill? Out of Chicago Ohare for gods sake. Played by Helen Hayes she even looks like this lady. That was supposed to be a far fetched plot device back then in the 70s. Before all this additional security and TSA. SHEESH.
How did she get past TSA? They want a boarding pass before entering the secure area. Geez...
Sheer incompetence. Good thing they busted my onions over a tin of shave soap two weeks ago. The TSA charade would be much more bearable if it wasn’t such an incredible waste of everyone’s time. For now it is Al Qaeda’s 9/11 trophy.
"such an incredible waste of everyone’s time. " And taxpayer money. And travelers' time is, of course, also money.
cant really blame her for trying to get out of Chicago
Although this is not in the kind, warm-hearted spirit of the Flightaware community, it did make me guffaw loudly. Thumbs-up!
more O'Hare airport, than the City of Chicago! Go Bears!
