And when you're waiting at your gate in your terminal, nothing matters except getting on your plane and heading to your destination– anything to get you out of this grey, timeless dump.

'[He] came back to get his carry on and realized it was missing': Man gets petty revenge on entitled passenger who tries to claim the overhead bin for himself

If you've been around the airport block a few times, you know we've all had our fair share of airport drama. It could be your bag playing a game of "almost too heavy," a little extra TLC from TSA during security checks, or navigating those airports that need a freakin' tram to get from one end to the other. And let's not even start on the nightmare of flight delays – we've all been there. But the real wildcard at the airport is the mix of folks you'll encounter on any given day. I'm talking abo…

'Well, lady, you're trash. I hope you missed your flight': Dude calls out Karen for cutting the long security line at the airport

'Well, lady, you're trash. I hope you missed your flight': Dude calls out Karen for cutting the long security line at the airport

The full range of human decency (and lack thereof) is on display at the airport security line. When you are stuck in a seemingly endless and motionless security line, it's increasingly hard to remember that patience is a virtue. It's far easier to roll your eyes and complain that you have the worst luck of anyone you know, which of course is not true considering that hundreds of other people are stuck in the same exact line. In short, it's easy to forget that other people are dealing with the s…

Air travel creates opportunities for some interesting social interactions that you wouldn't find elsewhere in life. Part of that is people tend to be pretty stressed out, even long before they actually manage to get seated on the flight. What with waking up early to get to the airport with ample time with ample anxiety owing to the uncertainty of queue times that can range from mere minutes to hours depending on the day… Following, you have to get undressed for security, parting your belongings…

Coworker Gloats About His Luxurious Airport Lounge Access, So His Colleagues Humble Him by Sharing the Wrong Gate Number; He Misses the Flight

Even the most experienced traveler gets stressed out about a lot of things at the airport: boarding times, your luggage's weight, TSA scanners, and the classic worry of going to the wrong gate for your flight. These are all things that most people check (and re-check) diligently, that is, of course, unless you're a little too loosey-goosey at the luxury airport lounge.

Here's one travel tip that won't save you any time or money. How do we know? U/garaks_tailor tested it out, so you can learn from their mistakes. The OP's story takes place while they were traveling for work . Many places will offer their workers a per diem while traveling.

Who deserves the aisle seat while flying? The answer is the person who paid for it… usually. However, this anxious flyer got asked to give up their seat for a different one, and they weren't happy about how the interaction played out. If you get anxious while flying, you're not alone. It's like an endurance test, with one stressful situation after another. First you have to book your trip, which is usually simple enough.

'Either you pay 50€ or you somehow make the luggage 50g lighter': Passenger has to make bag lighter to check luggage, maliciously complies by eating chocolate

Airport security is full of arbitrary rules. Having to pay ridiculous fees in order to make your luggage ever so slightly lighter is just one of many. Let's not forget that there is also all the TSA nonsense, and sometimes, the rules are wildly different depending on the airport. Sometimes you have to put all your bags in one cart, sometimes you have to separate everything, and sometimes they're so backed up that no one has to take their shoes off (which makes you question the effectiveness of…

'The golden rule of flying': Airline passenger gets surprise upgrade for being kind and patient, while fellow passengers who Karen-ed him get secretly downgraded

You might have heard from a wise person once that the golden rule of life is: “Don't be a jerk." Well, we agree with that person and is applies to many other life experiences. For example, flying.

So, it's best to approach it with kindness and patience, or else everybody, including yourself, is going to have a bad time. A perfect…

‘Surgeon smiled and told me not to worry’: Surgeon grants patient 18 months' worth of business-class flights, amounting to $20,000 in company expenses

If you comply with company rules, then you're all set and good to go, right? Well, not always. Sometimes your circumstances change, and what I mean by that is there can be a metamorphosis, a transformation, from old, to new, to ugly. In even simpler terms, new authority sucks. One person got a set of instructions, hot off the press, that didn't resemble the instructions they were used to in the past, and those instructions led to a whole lot of cash being extracted from company expenses. u/Impo…
