Just typical about the tickets :( As long as you got where you wanted to be and had the assistance required.

"We are both of them", this is not the best answer to avoid being rumbled. When trapped in a corner, answer a different question even if it does not remotely relate to the one being asked. Alternatively, have a general fall back position; just say "we are from Denmark" in a funny accent and "Yes" to all questions especially if yes is inappropriate. "When did you get on the train?" - "Yes". See Youtube Trigger Happy for examples of Dom Joly being a tourist. "How far are we from here?"

At that point it did not matter - the poor guy could not have given a fig about the regulations :lol: I was tempted to play dumb but he was clearly trying to do the work of 2 people so I thought it kinder to let him know that he didn't have to watch out for our doppelgänger ;) The Assistance is a service that you book separately so it probably would not have triggered any warnings.
