The short clip shows the woman – dressed in a pink top and shorts – march confidently past the check-in staff and up on to the ramp leading to the conveyor belt.
As she nears the belt, she stops and looks perplexed as a suitcase – not a person – rolls past.
But she steps on to the transporter anyway, to the bafflement of the check-in staff who move in to pull her back.

Yet suddenly her knees buckle and she thuds down on to the conveyor belt and is briefly carried down the track before the airport staff halt it.
The worried staff rush over, to check that the woman is ok, which she appears to be because she throws her arms aloft.
It is unclear whether she does this to make a joke at herself, or if it’s done in despair.
