We all know that there are numerous places where tickets are distributed (where seats are sold) in aviation, from the 'net and travel agencies to at the airport and in the airline's office. But what's the strangest, by which I mean the least expected, place you've seen airline tickets sold? For me, it's probably in a petrol station (DN tickets in Chennai).

Wow! Buy a ticket to Delhi while you fill up? Awesome!!
What's next....ticket vending machines in the washroom....may be a good idea to place these machines at railway stations in India....to catch the higher end class passengers as they struggle thru' the crowd on the platforms...just the right frame of mind to catch them and make them think of flying back from wherever they're going.....

If Australia Post gets its way, they might be able to sell JQ tickets at the Post ... stupid idea given their whole business case rests on them being able to circumvent any travel agent licensing regulations. I hope it doesn't happen.
