As intriguing as it was to see a huge group of small people tugging an airplane, we had to do some digging to see what in the world was actually going on here. Google actually proves that a Plane Pull is actually a thing.
This picture is from August 2017 and features a team of athletes from the University of Southern California competing in the Special Olympics. This group of determined youngsters is doing its best to pull a full-on plane through a distance of 12 ft. Also, different airlines and airports hold their own plane pulls as fundraisers. Who would have thought?
Hey man, this isn't the 1800s. If you enjoy the company of your own sex it is nothing to be ashamed of. And if you don't enjoy the company of your own sex then you don't have to make a big deal out of it. And by making a big deal out of it we mean wearing this t-shirt to the airport.
Just show up on time, make sure that your carry-on doesn't contain any liquids, and do whatever TSA asks you to do. Trust us, patting down strangers for hours on end is no treat either. Just like any other job, it's just another task that needs to be completed.
Roulette Baggage Claim
If you think the normal logistics of retrieving your bag from the baggage claim madness is not too much of a challenge, take your chances with a little game of baggage claim roulette.
Take this unique advertising technique for example. Too often, it can all feel like roulette when you go wait for your luggage after a long flight. This advertising campaign is sure to bring a smile to weary travelers, but what happens when more than one bag falls on the same slot on the carousel? Who gets the luggage? Will there be an airport brawl? We think they just may have something here.
No Make-Out Sessions
Sometimes, when we drop off a loved one at the airport, we know we won’t be seeing them again for quite a while. Those are the hardest goodbyes to say because we know that we’ll be missing out on some important moments.
You hug your loved one and try to draw out that moment just a bit longer – but you’re limited to precisely three minutes at one airport in particular – the Aalborg Airport in Denmark. The Aalborg Airport has a designated Kiss & Goodbye zone, where loved ones can park for a short time, to say goodbye to the person traveling. But only for three minutes.
Cool Ad Placement
We just HAD to learn more about this cool way to roll up to the airport! And we did... It turns out, Adidas, as part of their big build-up to the FIFA 2006 World Cup, decided to literally launch players into the public with their +10 Impossible Team campaign.
TBWA had launched a huge outdoor campaign on the road to and from the Munich airport, boldly featuring German goalkeeper Oliver Kahn diving in to make a save. The imagery is mounted on a bridge across the motorway, which also happens to be breaking Germany’s laws, which ban such advertising on the autobahn.
