Ohhh this is bad. A good bad hahaha. A prankster used the airport microphone to announce fake flight delays! This is a quick way to get people angry at you AND be detained.

A British man commandeered an unattended airport loudspeaker at a Greece airport according to the Daily Mail He then made a few airport-wide announcements that some UK flights had long delays when they actually didn’t.

Bystander Sam Wilson filmed the prankster’s antics waiting on his flight to Birmingham. Shortly after the stunt, a security guard and then a police officer took the man into custody. They held him for three hours, making him sweat after threatening to hold his passport for three days, then released the man.

Now. I’ve also grabbed the mic on a dare once at the Phoenix airport. I didn’t announce flight delays though. I was paging fake names to the counter. Names like; “Phil Myass” “Rita Book” “Pepe Roni” “Frank Einstein” “Al Getyou” hahaha. So dumb, but my friend was dying laughing. Also, I never got caught hahaha.
