From 1988 to 2006, Nasseri resided in Terminal 1 of the airport, initially out of the law since he lacked residency documents and then by apparent choice.
He slept on a red plastic bench every year, making friends with airport officials, taking showers in the staff bathrooms, journaling, reading periodicals, and watching the passing travellers.
He was given the nick of Lord Alfred by the staff, and he quickly gained notoriety among travellers.

In 1999, while sitting on a bench and smoking a pipe, he told The Associated Press, “Eventually, I will leave the airport. I appear frail with long thin hair, sunken eyes, and hollow cheeks. However, I have yet to receive a passport or transit visa.
To an Iranian father and a British mother, Nasseri was born in 1945 in Soleiman, a region of Iran that was then governed by the British. In 1974, he left Iran to attend college in England. He claimed that upon his return, he was deported without a passport and imprisoned for engaging in anti-Shah protests.
