If You Travel By Air A Lot, Beware Of Over Friendly Chatty Seat Neighbours. by Buzzapper: 9:23pm On Sep 15, 2022
NEVER DO THIS IN A FLIGHT!!!

If you travel by air a lot, beware of over friendly chatty seat Neighbour's.

This older lady comes and sits next to me inside the plane. She asked me to help her put her bag in the overhead luggage compartment. But a gentleman sitting across quickly came through. (I am not very tall, and the overhead luggage compartment is something I try to avoid at all costs.
Immediately she sits down she strikes up a conversation. She was very pleasant and well spoken. So, we chatted all through the flight to Dubai.

Suddenly, when the pilot announced that we were now proceeding to begin our descent into DXB, my good friend 'developed' stomach pains. Me with my good heart, I pressed the steward's button, and the stewardess came to find out what the problem was. I told her my seat mate was not feeling well.

And this lady, she suddenly began to address me as 'my daughter'. The stewardess told me that there was nothing they could do except give her some painkillers and wait until we landed.

The pilot announced that we had a medical emergency on board and advised us all to stay calm. My new friend was crying and sweating like crazy. And she refused to let go of my hand... everyone assumed we knew each other.

So, we landed at DXB and the same gentleman who helped put up her luggage in the overhead compartment removed her luggage.

But as he removed the luggage, he advised me to distance myself from this lady and make it clear to the cabin crew that we were NOT travelling together. He was a godsend!

So indeed, the cabin crew came and asked me if we were related, I categorically told them we had met on the plane. I didn't know her at all.
So, we began to disembark and as I said goodbye, she kept begging me to carry her handbag. I was so torn... but the gentleman looked me in the eye and emphatically shook his head. He passed me a note telling me to let the cabin crew handle her.

So, I exit the aircraft and leave my 'new friend' to wait for the wheelchair and be handled by the cabin crew feeling very guilty.

As we waited for our luggage to come through, I hear this commotion. My 'new friend' was running, trying to escape the cabin crew, having gotten out of the wheelchair! She left the stewardess with her handbag and just ran towards the exit with the rest of her hand luggage!

Luckily the airport police were faster than her. They got hold of her and brought her back in handcuffs.

This lady starts calling out to me. my daughter... my daughter! how could you do this to me..... that's when I caught on. She was carrying drugs and she was trying to implicate me!

Luckily for me, the gentleman who had helped her with her luggage came forward and told the airport police that me and her had just met on the plane.

The police took my passport and asked her to reveal my full names if it was true we were travelling together. By God's grace, I had not even told her my first name! I was still asked to follow the police to a little room where I was questioned extensively.

Where did I meet her?... where did I board... where did she board. Etc... And my luggage was extensively searched and dusted for fingerprints.
They dusted all her luggage, and my fingerprints were not found anywhere on her luggage or on her handbag!

I was let go with advice never ever to touch anyone's luggage either in flight or at the airport. So, from that day, I don't care how much luggage you have, you will deal with it yourself. I will not even offer you a trolley to put your luggage on! Your luggage... your problem.... is my policy.

And if you can't reach the overhead compartment, and I am the nearest person, please call the cabin crew because all I will do is give you a blank stare and then look away!

But sorry to ask, Why was she running all of a sudden?

I mean no one was chasing her or found out she had drugs on her?

yeye BS story....
A) if she was carrying anything illegal, they would quietly take her to a different area to start ask her questions and search her bags
B) where was she running to?! any person who's been on a plane knows that before going anywhere, you have to go through immigration/pass control, then get her luggages thus there is nowhere for you to run to.
C) so person started running just like that, when police dont even know she is carrying anything?! what kind of yeye story is this?

sadly, it is well know today that you shouldnt accept ANYTHING from ANYONE when travelling, and certainly dont be buddy buddy with strangers you just met on the plane.

Recycled and garnished super story



A below par remix of a story that never happened.





The story changed from a he to a she this time with many embellishments especially the taking off like Usain Bolt part.



Op, you try !

Why? This was the question I kept asking myself as I read this story. Why would she do that? What's in it for her? Perhaps the plan was to claim the bag wasn't hers in case she got caught? I'm sure she didn't just wake up and decided to look for someone to send to jail. Implicating someone must have been an escape plan if something went wrong. So I wonder what the who plan was.

Anyway, OP, you're indeed lucky. Drug cases are taken very seriously. Hope you had the chance to thank that man that asked you to stay away from the lady. He must have noticed some things you missed. I feel touched by this story cause I'd have probably fallen for it, especially when she was pleading with you to help her carry her bag.

A girl I met on a flight from lagos to Ghana did this to me . I swear down we were chatty and spoke all through the flight . If you see us it was like we knew ourselves back in lagos cos we were laughing hard and doing light smooches here and there . In my mind I was like I dn knack this one once we enter Accra cos she was fine and had a nice shape . My people Na so as we land she come Dey do like say the load too many for her to handle and she pleaded with me to carry one for her and insisted I be in front of her . My people when it was my turn for them to stamp my passport and for me to pass immigration I turned and I can swear with my life I didn’t see her again . Innocent me passed with her bag and cleared immigration and was waiting for this witch to come out . It was during that wait period it occurred to me that she could be smuggling something . The idiot came after like 20mins and appologised , before I could talk about hot to hookup in Ghana she just hurriedly took her bags , rushed into a car and told me bye . I never saw her again . Some useless risks we take for the kitten
