For the first-time flyers, airports can really be confusing. First-time flyers make silly mistakes. Well, a video has gone viral on the social media in which we can see a flyer trying to board her plane via the luggage conveyor belt at a Turkish airport.
A woman climbed onto a luggage conveyor belt at a check-in counter. She apparently thought it would lead her to the aircraft. The woman made her way to the belt safely, but was unable to maintain her balance as she fell down. The airport staff stopped the belt immediately and rescued the woman.
According to The Sun, the incident took place at the Istanbul Airport in Turkey. The airport cameras captured the moment. The Sun further claimed that the woman had never flown before, and mistakenly thought that the conveyor belt meant solely for luggage would conveniently carry her to the doors of her plane to Turkey.
The woman was lucky that she never made it to the end of the belt, which would have dropped her for sure onto a pile of air-ready luggage.

Just when I think I’ve seen all the various symptoms of ‘Airport Brain’ some passengers seem to suffer from when flying...this was at New Istanbul Airport...pic.twitter.com/dzwDiOj4yf— Alex Macheras (@AlexInAir) July 12, 2019
