If your niece flew on a plane for 6,000 miles and turned up at the airport uninvited and unannounced, do you pick her up? ?

No, you let her find her own way.

You sound suspiciously like the niece who showed up unannounced while you were living in Germany. So today you're posing as the aunt. How refreshing.

I would go and pick her up, but I would expect some pretty good answers as to WHY she did this, and what she expects me to do now that I HAVE picked her up.
I would not be impressed or pleased if she said, 'Oh but auntie, I just assumed I could stay with you for free and you would drive me around and take me places until I felt like going home again'.
By the way, this is not an Etiquette question. Why don't you move it to 'Family'?

I would--unless she is a known drug user who just got out of jail for murdering someone.....

Of course. Least I could do. I'd ask why, of course, but would work with her to see why she took this drastic action and how I could help.

It would be nice to pick her up and offer her a place to stay if you are emotionally close and have the room. I don't "DO" drop in company. I would never drop in on anyone- no matter what.

If one of my nieces did that, yes I would pick them up at the airport.

If she can plan that trip by herself she can plan her taxi ride to her hotel.
