Airport Shows Porn at Baggage Claim, No One Complains

Published On 10/21/2015 Published On 10/21/2015

Waiting for your luggage at baggage claim is a decidedly unsexy experience. But for a group at carousel 5 in Lisbon Portela Airport, the experience got way sexier than anyone would have ever expected when the airport accidentally broadcasted porn on the television at baggage claim.

In response to the incident, a spokesperson for the airport told The Daily Mirror, "At 3:00 a.m. on October 19, along one of the luggage mats from Lisbon Airport, a TV was tuned (without sound) to a Portuguese generalist channel (this is not a porn channel), which at the time ran a soft porn movie." He went on to say that airport staff noticed what was being shown and quickly changed the channel, though there were reportedly "no complaints" about the programming mishap. Apparently everyone agreed baggage claim could use a little spice. 

So while US basic channels are showing informercials for the Magic Bullet, Portugal gets porn. Noted.

Luckily, or unluckily depending on what you're into, a traveler recorded it all on his iPhone, so now we can all judge whether this is "soft" porn or not. Be warned, this video contains explicit content. And as the cameraman says, "Welcome to Lisbon."
