The Chuckle Brothers work as airport security.

Plot

Barry brings Paul into the airport on a trolley and they attract the attention of their boss No Slacking and he sets them to work for Flyaway Air.

They practice their Customer Relations and pretend to sign each other in. Mrs. Snow comes along and they help her with her very heavy cases containing teddy bears. It turns out she has hired a private jet. Barry starts to get suspicious when the teddies weigh a ton. He then put's her on a trolley and scoots her out to the plane while Paul gets the cases on.

They put her through the metal detector and it goes off, she hands her handbag to Barry and goes through it without it going off. Then Barry goes through and it goes off, Paul suspects it is the buttons on Barry's jacket and he takes it off. He picks up the bag and goes through again, it goes off again and Paul suspects it is Barry's cuff links and he has to take his shirt off. It goes off again and Paul suspects it is his zip so he has to remove his trousers. It goes off again and before Paul can suspect anything else, the old woman asks if she can board the plane. They go through the instructions in case of emergency and they move on. Once they have left she sneakily boards the plane herself.

In the communications room, NS drops by to check up on the two to see if they are working, and instructs Barry to get himself smartened up after noticing his untied tie hanging from his uniform. They start to make a communication to the pilot but Paul keep thinks Barry is talking to him and tells him to shut up. Paul keeps pressing the communicator button by accident when Paul is teaching Barry to tie his tie, resulting in the plane doing lots of different flips in the air. The plane lands back where it started, and NS apologises to Mrs. Snow and takes her back while Paul and Barry unload her cases. Barry starts to become suspicious again with the cases.

They report to NS' office where he starts to give them a lecture about their actions until he discovers the gold bar from one of the teddies and identifies her as Granny Grunt the Gold Grabber. She threatens them and takes NS's car keys to make a quick getaway. Paul and Barry chase after her with a trolley and she knocks into a bin and they tie her up.
