  1. Passenger at Check-in: “Hi – I’d like to check in for the flight to Toronto, please”

    Check-in Assistant: “Certainly, sir, and do you have any bags to check in?”

    PAC: “Yep, two cases please, and, uh, I’d like this one to go to Karachi, and this one’s for Frankfurt”

    CIA: “Erm… I’m sorry, sir, but if you’re fliying to Toronto I don’t think we can do that”
