Airport Treats Passengers to Graphic Porn at Baggage Claim

Airport Treats Passengers to Graphic Porn at Baggage Claim
Jeff Edwards

Instead of flight information, the video displays at one airport’s baggage claim left very little to the imagination.

Passengers waiting to pick up their bags in the early morning hours at Lisbon Portela Airport (LIS) were surprised to see graphic pornographic images broadcast on the television monitors over the baggage carousel. A YouTube video (WARNING: NSFW) taken by a bystander captures passengers’ reactions as the explicit sex scenes started playing without warning as flyers waited to claim checked bags. Most of the flyers seem amused by the odd airport programming decision, but other passengers were horrified to find themselves a captive audience to the adult entertainment.

The risqué video was not intentionally broadcast nor was it a publicity stunt sponsored by Virgin Atlantic. In fact, airport officials say there is an innocent explanation for there was a surprise peepshow at baggage claim.

“At 3:00 a.m. on October 19, along one of the luggage mats from Lisbon Airport, a TV was tuned (without sound) to a Portuguese generalist channel (this is not a porn channel), which at the time ran a soft porn movie,” an airport spokesperson told The Daily Mirror, adding,” The situation was corrected promptly. There were no complaints. We will ensure that these situations are not repeated.”

Although the video of the reactions to the inappropriate airport entertainment quickly went viral with thousands of YouTube views, LIS officials say they have yet to receive a single complaint regarding the unfortunate baggage claim pornography.

    I never check bags, but I’d definitely reconsider if this were an option in domestic airports.

    No complaints as there were likely no prudish, puritanical Americans in the baggage area
