Burnt breakfast sparks major evacuation at Auckland Airport's international terminal
6:15 AM Wednesday Apr 12, 2017

Burnt toast sparked a major evacuation of travellers at Auckland Airport international airport this morning.

Passengers were evacuated from the ground floor of Auckland Airport's international terminal around 6am.

Those forced to wait outside were asked for patience while the matter was dealt with.

However, the incident turned out to be a false alarm.

A Fire Service spokesman said it was sparked by someone cooking toast near a smoke alarm.

On a day like this I'd be expecting leaks! Would be crap being evacuated in this weather.

As someone who recently returned from an extended time in NZ, I can't help but shake my head at what type of airline situations are making the news in NZ compared to the USA. Effectively two vastly different realities.

Well, if you blew all of your outrage on the leggings incident, don't you feel stupid now?
