New York Day One: But The Flight Was Seamless

Posted in mobile phone camera by Knutsvik on February 23, 2011

Tuesday, 22nd February 2011. SK 909.

The good people at SAS are kind enough to upgrade us to business, and the flight is seamless. During passport control at Newark Liberty Airport L is told by Mr. Wong, the immigration officer, to please step out of the line and follow another officer. This officer leads her into an office where they take her passport, and tell her to sit down and wait. She is not allowed to use her phone to call me. After 45 minutes they return the passport, and tell her she’s free to go. The officers are polite at all times, even if they never give her any reason for the extra control,

but the flight was seamless.

    She’s not the first one, Knut. And they’re not always polite, apparently.

      haha – hey, S, yesterday I figured out why she was singled out for further questioning. turns out when they asked when she last was in the US she’d answered “two or three years ago”. “ah, yes august 2009,” the immigration officer said. “yes”, she answered…..

      well – that’s two lies, because she was here last January …. so immigration had to make sure she was just stupid and jetlagged and confused and not an evil terrorist impostor travelling on fake ID 😀

      (but at least they were polite 😀 )
