Passengers Flip Out When Simone Biles Surprises Them At The Airport

by www.huffingtonpost.com

Simone Biles was back on the podium yesterday, but for a very different reason: She was alerting passengers it was time to board a flight at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport.

The smiley gold medalist from the U.S. women’s gymnastics team greeted travelers, made in-flight announcements and even directed air traffic on Monday as part of a promotion with United Airlines.

Unsuspecting fliers ? as well as United crew members ? were more than thrilled when Simone showed up to take charge. And we don’t blame them one flippin’ bit. Take a look: 

She was my coworker for a Lil bit today! #SimoneBiles #BlackGirlMagic #Gymnast #GateAgentLol
