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: Many of these adventures date back to 90s/2000s , when conditions at many airports were rougher and security less intense. A few of these adventures contain “colourful” language and situations that may be offensive to some people. If you are someone who is easily offended or requires trigger warnings: this is it! You can click here to escape or proceed with a grain of salt, a bit of nerve and sense of humour!
