Most people make a point to arrive at the airport at least a couple of hours before their flight is expected to depart. They do this because it’s not 1967 anymore, and in this day and age you have to put in some effort to get to your gate.
Unfortunately, you can take all the precautions in the world and still end up missing your flight.
If this happens, the proper protocol requires you to walk to the nearest desk with your head down, your shoulders hunched and the sad “Peanuts” theme song playing in the background.
The couple in this video arrived too late to board their flight. Instead of trudging through the terminal to find the nearest agent, they decided to employ an unconventional strategy that involved yelling and banging on the glass in the waiting area in the hopes that the captain would see them and let them on.
Shockingly, he didn’t.
