Panic exodus by happypat

Panic exodus

The checking desk at Auckland Airport as we got on our flights out of New Zealand.
Even though we checked in online & got there a full three & a half hours before the flight it took us two hours to queue up for our boarding passes.

Extra staff on to cope with all those hoping to get on a flight out, you can see a few in this picture. Mostly young people traveling round NZ with their bikes, surf boards & hiking equipment I fear they are still there trapped there as NZ went on phase four today...virtual lock down everywhere.
They wouldn’t let them on the planes as they had no ticket for the onward journey from Dubai.
Last flights out of most countries tomorrow....
You would of been very pleased to finally board.. hope alls well at home and enjoy you time hunkering down..

A story repeated at airports the world over I’m sure. I’m glad you are home.

This is an adventure they will be able to tell their grandchildren about! This pandemic will certainly make the history books and their grandchildren will be awed to know how they survived!

You're lucky to have managed to get on a flight, though the situation here is getting much worse

Its like a science fiction novel! A bit of a nightmare for some. Not for us two who are going to continue living as we have. Hope you will be able to do the same!
