1. Double tapping your pockets every 5 minutes for 4 hours to make sure your passport is still there.

2. Thinking why most women who work at the airport have to wear silk scarves around their neck.

3. Watching someone crouch awkwardly to charge their phone.

4. Getting jealous of the man sitting alone drinking champagne and eating oysters.

5. Seeing little children with the same roller carry-ons as their parents and wondering what they’ve got in there.

6. The awkward bachelor party where everyone is still sober and the groom is dressed as Spiderman.

7. The rush that comes after getting through security without any problems.

8. The guy in swimming shorts and a hat who still thinks he's on the beach instead of the airport.

9. Wondering why people think they have to be fancy and use a neck pillow, and then wondering why you didn’t bring one.

10. The feeling that bad things happen in 12’s when you’re at the airport, daring to take a well-deserved holiday!

Never make these Mistakes at the Airport

We all make mistakes, but making these mistakes at the airport can cost you a lot of time and money.
Here are some air-travel mistakes that you should know better than to make…

#1 Leaving your bags behind

Take note of how many bags you have and make sure to do regular bag counts when you’re leaving home, arriving at the airport and waiting at the check-in counter.

#2 Being barefoot

If you have to take your shoes off for a security check, make sure to wear socks because you won’t want to be hobbling across the dirty airport floor.

#3 Forgetting to pack snacks

Airport food will burn a hole in your pocket, so make sure you pack something healthy and nutritious for when you’re waiting in a long line or if your plane doesn’t sell anything appropriate.

#4 Arriving late

On a busy travel day, arrive at the airport a few hours early – it’s better to be early than have to pay extra for a later flight.

#5 Parking in the most expensive lot

You’ll pay a lot more to park in the closest airport parking, so rather choose a cheap parking and take a short shuttle drive to the terminal.

#6 Over-packing

Huge, heavy bags result in you having to pay over the top penalties. Pack less and stress less!

#7 Losing your cool

From rude air-hostesses to creepy airport security, everyone has a complaint about someone at the airport. The fact is there are more doing good than bad, so relax and take a breath before you start to complain.

#8 Crowding around the baggage carousel

Unless you can spot your bag from a mile away and can grab it without bashing into everyone around you, don’t join the scrum around the baggage carousel, rather pick a safe spot where you’re less likely to injure someone.

We’ll let you in on a few secrets that will make your time at the airport a lot better!
