Fear Of Flying

It's funny (funny in an interesting way, not a humorous one) how things seem to run in cycles. Latest example: yesterday I posted something about strange events related to flying. Today I ran across another such case. Cue the Twilight Zone music...

Airport plays porn film on big TV screen as passengers collect their luggage
Airport customers were left in shock after graphic porn scenes starting playing out over a big TV screen as they collected their luggage.

The incident was caught on camera by one passenger in Lisbon Airport who whipped out his mobile phone to record the bizarre moment.

Of course, it then didn't take long before the clip was posted to YouTube and circulated around the internet. (don't worry - it's SFW)

According to Portuguese media, the incident occurred on October 19 at Terminal 1 of the airport building as baffled passengers waited at the baggage carousel.

It is thought the pornographic video broadcast lasted for several minutes.

A spokesman for Lisbon Airport said: "At 3:00 a.m. on October 19, along one of the luggage mats from Lisbon Airport, a TV was tuned (to a channel) which at the time ran a soft porn movie.

"An airport employee noticed the program that was being issued, so those images flashed momentarily on the TV set.

"The situation was corrected promptly. There were no complaints. We will ensure that these situations are not repeated."
"There were no complaints."

Of course not. It made waiting for your luggage more enjoyable...
