airport adventures


From the hilarious to the horrifying, here is a collection of traveller airport adventures and misadventures from members of the SleepingInAirports community.

That feeling of being on the brink of a meltdown in an airport is hardly a unique one. Whether it comes from multiple flight delays and re-routes or being harshly awoken in the middle of the night by airport staff, the adventures and misadventures we experience are both unique and universal. Read this section for a laugh and some comfort with the realization that your own situation may not be so bad.

Warning: a few of these adventures may contain some colourful language, spawned on by stress and frustration. Proceed on with a grain of salt, a bit of nerve and sense of humour!
