Are you always running to the boarding gate to catch the next flight? Do you ever get the time to visit one of the many luxurious lounges at the Airport? This man decided to take the airport experience to another level enjoying the amenities of¬†World’s Best Airport according to Skytrax.

A jobless 32-year-old Malaysian man decided to spend 18 days in the transit area at Changi International Airport after missing his return flight to Kuala Lumpur.

Raejali Buntut spent almost three weeks in the transit area – 18 days from August 18 to September 7 – entering several lounges facilities using 31 forged mobile boarding passes according to The Straits Times

After missing his flight, Raejali checked in one of the lounges using his Priority Pass issued by his bank and presented his boarding pass. Next day, as his boarding pass had already expired, Raejali proceeded to forge it changing date, flight number and other details.

In order to get access to other lounges, Raejali downloaded images of mobile boarding passes from the internet, and forge them using his laptop and an editing software.

Raejali was finally caught by a lounge staff that noticed he was using the facilities too often. More often than usual frequent fliers according to the staff. Authorities were called in and the man was arrested.

Raejali seems to have enjoyed his lounge experiences to the fullest. More than a jobless man, Raejali has become a Changi Airport lounge Guru. We hope to read his TripAdvisor reviews very soon.
