Peak season, an airport full of stressful people and airplanes come and go. For yourself you hope everything is running smoothly without any delays or struggles. And when there is a delay, you hope there is valid reason for that. But this 40-year old women caused complete chaos with a result of 330 flights delayed and/or cancelled.
You always try to save some time to check-in 24 hours before departing, you arrange a lift to the airport, check if there are any trafficjams and take care of all the papers you need in advance. It would save a lot of time and lines if everyone would do this, but unfortunately not everyone is doing this (yet).
Last summer Ryanair cancelled a lot of flights which causes chaos and a lot of headaches for a lot of people on the airports. But this woman in Germanny causes more than 300 delayed flights on her own! She did this on one of the most busiest days on the airport of München.
Her action didn’t only lead to a lot of frustration, but people were also fired because of her.
In the South of Germany all the vacations are starting at the end of July and on the 28th of that month there was a complete chaos because of one woman. This 40-year old traveller went trough the security checks without being checked. The guards asked the woman to return to her lugage, because she didn’t had a sealed plastic bag for her liquids. After this she ran away from the security and didn’t came back for her suitcase. Her action made everything suspicious. The security didn’t trust this situation and had to investigate with precision.
The result: 330 cancelled flights and loads of delays. The woman couldn’t be found anymore because she was already the the air to her destination. She wasn’t prosecuted eventually, because it was the responsibility of the security guards to stop her when she slipped out. Three of these security guards have been fired because of this action.
