Airline itineraries always warn people to get to the airport at least two hours in advance. That's because going through the security check can take over an hour, especially if they randomly select you for an additional screening. Some have missed their flight due to annoying, usually unnecessary searches. Here are some examples of some of the funniest and strangest encounters with airport security.

4 - Weekend With Curt
This silly story occurred inside a Liverpool airport located in the United Kingdom. Two women arrived at the terminal pushing an older gentleman in a wheelchair, who they told many staff members was simply sleeping. Well, as it later turned out, the man in the wheelchair was named Curt Jarant and he had actually died several days prior to arriving inside the crowded airport.
When attempting to push Curt's body through the x-ray machine, his sunglasses fell off and security officers became suspicious of the two women. The women were Curt's widow and his stepdaughter, who were attempting to save a few bucks on costly reparation fees which accompany flying a deceased person. How they thought they could get through check-in, security and then to his seat without anyone being the wiser is anyone's guess.
3 - Rude Awakening
When the plane lands, there’s usually a mad rush of people trying to get off first, everyone lines the aisles and pushes and shoves, but for a few sleeping passengers, this wasn’t the case. In fact, a few travellers over the years have found themselves so tired, they didn’t wake up until well after the entire flight crew was long gone.
In 2010, a man named Kris Lines fell asleep on a flight from Calgary to Vancouver and didn’t wake up until around two hours after the plane had been emptied. He woke up to a ground crew performing routine maintenance on the aircraft. Both parties found themselves severely startled by the surprise meeting.
Later that same year, another passenger named Ginger McGuire fell into a deep sleep while on a one-hour flight from Dulles Virginia to Philadelphia, only to wake up three hours after the plane had landed to find herself locked inside the now abandoned aircraft. Several hours later, the terrified traveller was rescued by a cleaning crew.
But the real silliness of this situation was when the cleaning crew arrived, they asked her, “Don’t you have a cell phone?” When she said she did, the crew said, “Well, lady, why didn’t you bother calling for help? We could have rescued you hours ago.”
2 - Naked Revenge
By now it's been established that getting through airport security can be a real pain, most travelers will bite their tongues and take the abuse, but, over the years, there have been a few disgruntled passengers who have taken a stand and decided to make things more difficult for TSA officers.
One such airport security vigilante was a man passing through Portland International Airport named John Brennan. After getting frustrated at the slow process, John reached his breaking point and decided to strip down to his birthday suite to awaiting security guards.
The TSA officer was not amused, or grateful for the attempt to make his job easier, instead he became infuriated and ordered John to put back on his clothes immediately! When John refused, he was arrested for indecent exposure. And now for the best part, when John showed up to court he protested his conviction and 1,000 dollar fine, and the judge took his side and threw the case out. Seems like this judge had his own problems with TSA and was able to get revenge for himself and for John Brennan.
1 - Dangerous Piercings
In 2008, a woman attempting to board a flight from Lubbock to Dallas in Texas, went through the security gate to encounter a TSA agent with a hand-held detector, which began to beep as it grazed her chest.
The 37-year old woman named Mandi Hamlin tried to explain they she had nipple rings, but apparently, that explanation wasn't good enough for the female Transportation Security Administration agent who immediately called over her male colleagues. The passenger was informed that she would need to remove her body piercings before being allowed to board her flight. In tears and in front of a gaping public, Mandi attempted to remove her piercings.
Mandi has since reported that the male security agents were laughing at her during the entire embarrassing spectacle. The frustrated patron was so upset, she demanded a civil rights investigation into the matter. The last time we checked, nipple piercings weren’t dangerous weapons.
as much as possible. avoid flying federal.... why? FBI may be targeting a certain person and may place a bomb on flight.... federal government funded perverts the tsa .. will fondle you and sexually molest your child. or rape your wife and becouse its all federal it gets covered up. ect.. ect.. dont fly federal.. fly private. END THE FED

Fuck "Mandy" take your bullshit tit piercings out before you fly. Just as easily could've cried when she was smuggling a knife or worse onto the plane. When your self expression becomes a safety hazard to others that's when you need to check yourself.

Try security in China, far, far, worse. Full body scan, every time, everything out of the bag that they do not recognize (Keys and coins always trip them up) and lines that go on forever. Typical wait is 30 minutes at least, oh and baggage claim, 45 minutes from landing time at least.

When I was in Iraq in the Army in 2004, my mother passed away. I returned home on commercial air on emergency leave. Upon returning after the funeral, I checked in at the ticket counter. They asked for my passport, and I presented my military ID, and orders. Then the agent seemed to get flustered. She typed into her computer, seemed to try various things, and finally called a supervisor over. After they both seemed to frustrated over what they were doing on the computer that wasn't working, I finally asked what was going on. They told me that I was a "random selectee" for extra screening, but that they were not allowed to do that to military personnel traveling on orders. They couldn't figure out how to get me out of that status on the computer, though. I said that it was OK, I would submit to the extra screening if that would make it easier, but they said no, that it was against federal law to subject me to extra screening. After an hour, and several phone calls they finally got it fixed. I have flown since then, and have never been a "random" selectee. I am convinced now that these selections are not random at all, and I was selected because the final destination on my ticket was Kuwait City.

Don't get mad at the TSA for keeping us safe, get mad at the muslims that made this necessary. We haven't had another attack using planes since 9/11, TSA must be doing a good job. As far as the nipple rings, I bet that wasn't the first time they were shown.

pesky TSA agents..they are mutants. I carried a loaded 45 with an extra mag onto an aircraft with no issues. Before you jump on me...I am a licensed owner and had a carry permit in all the states I was in. I had NO IDEA that the gun was in my backpack. It went through XRAY no problem. I stuffed it in the overhead when i boarded. Imagine my surprise when I got to FL: and unpacked and found it. I had to ship it home though licensed gun dealers. None of them were surprised when i told them about it. it was right then and there I knew we had NOBODY protecting us...they are all idiots

I remember when I was young, (2001-2005) I would bring my favorite stuffed monkey that I took everywhere with me and they would always want to hold it and squeeze it kinda to make sure it was safe... I HATED IT because it was mine and my favorite... I once remember I didn't give it to them, luckily he was nice.
then just this October 2017 I was with my uncle going to my grandparents place we had to stay the night in Toronto because of missing a flight by like 10 mins or something when in Calgary they said we should be able to make it, and next day we go in go through, we couldn't find the right gate we were at the wrong one for a bit, then we realized it and went looking for it.. then went out a wrong door back out into the main check in area... we asked a security guard where the gate was, and we told us but we could not go back in the way we came out... we had to go back through security and I had bought us water, and had to guzzle it my uncle had to throw his out because he didn't want to drink it then. then he goes through the thing it beeped, (didn't when we first went through) and the guy asked him things he said no, then the guy gave him a rub over, he was also rude about it too we both were pissed off over the whole thing.. so pissed off from the night before and then that ordeal we were glad to get there...

The Portland Oregon one with the guy who stripped down: it's perfectly legal to be naked here unless you are attempting to 'turn people on'. So, the judge wasn't having some sort of revenge on TSA - he was tossing the case out, I assume, because there was no case.
