How to Not Be the Worst Person at the Airport

How to Not Be the Worst Person at the Airport

Airports are magical portals from the land of sanity to crazy town. Where else in the world do you see people dragging their belongings behind them while sprinting to a Sbarro’s and wearing an inflatable neck pillow?

The land of crazy town is home to the infamous Terrible Traveler. These are rude, loud, and probably smelly people who make you reconsider taking an 11-hour flight with two connections just to avoid being seated next to them. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, it’s probably you.

Here are some tips on how to not be terrible:

Tip 1: Don’t play dumb in the security line.

What’s that? You’ve been waiting in the security line for 45 minutes and decide as you’re walking up to the x-ray machine NOW is the time to remove all your metal jewelry and laptop from your bag? That’s fine to hold up the rest of the people behind you (said no one).

Tip 2: Keep your smells in check

That curry dish smells great, but continuously smelling it for five hours on a flight is no bueno. Traveling can also be stressful with airport overnights and no access to showers, so make sure you always have deodorant and a travel-sized bottle of your favorite perfume or cologne for a light spritz. Your seatmates will thank you.

Tip 3: Don’t be an outlet hog

In airports, outlets are more valuable than gold nuggets in the Wild West. If you’re not charging, don’t take a seat next to a wall outlet.

Tip 4: Follow road rules

Slow walkers on the right, fast walkers on the left. If you don’t follow this rule, there’s a pretty strong chance you’ll get run over on the moving walkway.
