Sounds a lot like standby flights. Does this sort of thing still happen?

Standby is still common but I think it's slightly different (usually airplane staff family members etc who get cheap tickets but only on standby). I have also heard of the other kind... you just show up at an airport and if you aren't picky, take the next cheap flight to anywhere... makes it hard to pack but would be fun for an adventure :)

Never done this before though ...
