this is brilliant - had tears in my eyes. See if you can work out what they were saying and if you want the sound bites I'll email them to you (512 kB).
Two guys have wasted their time at airports, in this case, London’s Heathrow, by writing down strange names and asking the airport Information Center to locate these people by calling out their names on the airport’s PA system. These guys would then hang out beneath the speakers and record the results.
In order to make it as believable as possible, they dressed up as chauffeurs and asked for help finding these people about 40 minutes after a Thai Airways or Air India flight had landed.
They acted as if they could not pronounce the names themselves, so as not to reveal the joke, but just handed over a note with the names printed on it and asked the employ at the Information Center.
After the fifth recording, they had to leave Heathrow as airport security figured out what was going on. The last recording is from Gatwick.
