Airport ground staff play fun game before take off

We don't know what's worse, waiting for your flight to depart or waiting for it to disembark. 

Either way, we are always happy to hear the captain announce a safe landing over the PA system. 

As you might know, there are many passengers who prefer the window seat. 

Over and above the fact that a window seat guarantees you only having to sit next to one person, it is also a prime spot because you get to look out at the beautiful views. 

One passenger who was travelling on a flight from Cape Town International Airport shared another fun reason to have a window seat. 

In a video shared to TikTok, Ty Delilah showed us how the ground staff spend their time between take off and landing.
