Simone Biles may be small but she made a huge impression on passengers and crew members at O’Hare International Airport.

The Olympic gold medalist stopped by Chicago’s airport to work a promotion or United Airlines, one of her sponsors.

When she wasn’t taking selfies with all of her adoring fans, the down-to-earth gal was trying her hand at a few airport jobs.

Simone informed passengers of Wi-Fi on board, scanned boarding passes, pretended to be a flight attendant and even scared some folks when she said their flight was going to Rio, the site of the summer Olympics.

She was even allowed on the Tarmac to marshall in a plane!


Even my old co-worker got a photo with her. Yes, I’m jealous:
