To get into the international departures area of YYZ, you need to show your BP to a dragon, who will then let you in. I was connecting from YOW, onward to AMS on KL. I left my AMS BP in the seat-back of the YOW flight! The only KL agents in the airport were at checkin and in the international departures area, and I had 20 minutes until doors closed... no way was I able to get to checkin! Freaking out, begging and pleading with the security agent, I finally realized I had printed off OCLI BPs and put them in my carry on! Oh boy, did I ever feel like an idiot.

There's a nice ending to this story though. Y was incredibly oversold, and they were processing op-ups for any elite of any status. At that time, I had FO with DL, and KL regarded that as important enough to op-up myself and my non-elite companion!
