I guess you get into a bit of a routine after a while - "Flight such and such is delayed and will now leave at whenever."
One day, Air Canada had an indefinite delay and Linda started off without having read through the announcement quite to the end"Air Canada flight 874 is delayed and will leave".........very long pause and then - very quickly..."sometime today"
A couple of guys in the UK went one betterThey‘d go and sit on the balcony at Terminal 3 at Heathrow, directly under one of the speakers. They'd put the tape machine in their bag with the microphone poking out of the top and then look for a flight that had arrived in the last 40 minutes from somewhere where you‘d expect mental names.
They'd then write a letter saying, 'Could you go and pick up etc. etc. from flight, etc.' That way, it looked like it‘d been arranged in advance as the flight arrival details were written on the note. Wore an ID-style badge and carried a mobile so that they looked like taxi drivers and pretend to be unable to pronounce it. Handed them the bit of paper with the name written on it.
