    Cool A Strange Request

    OK follow this, my niece' s, friend's, cousin's family ........ just returned from Hawaii and because I am the only person "they know" in the airline/airport industry they want me to let TSA know, that the pre-check line at HNL (UA) was horrendously long and that they had to walk past AA's pre-check line which btw were also long (but not as long as UA's) to a third pre-check line to make their flight. UH-HUH!
    Which leads me to ask: What is the strangest airline/airport request (other than the usual buddy pass requests from neighbors and distant relatives *wink*) you've gotten?

    Now to call my niece so she can relay the news about a TSA website.*laughing*

    Thankfully I only allow one particular family to use passes because they are very flexible and have the means to stay overnight when they cannot get a flight out. But the strangest thing they asked me was if they could have my password so they didn't have to bother me in the middle of the night. Of course I said "absolutely not!" I continue to be "up" with them in the middle of the night navigating them back to the States on their many journeys abroad.

    Luckily I have never had any strange requests, just people who want me to "find them the cheapest fare" into a certain city. I have not been able to convince my family and friends that I don't have access to anything they don't just because I work for an airline. They all act like I am a travel agent.

    Donna, not a travel agent - a travel concierge - concierge from the Latin word conserves, meaning doing everything from soup to nuts. *laughing*
