Even “Laughter Yoga” Won’t Make Disgruntled Travelers Joyful About Major Delays

This Is Frightening
Laughter-Yoga-At-JFK
Dear God, Make The Cackling Stop!

It’s like something straight out of a David Lynch movie. Last week, during a four-hour flight delay at JFK airport, Laughter Yoga “Stylist and Coach” Francine Shore led the group of stressed passengers through a 20-minute “laughter meditation” session. No word on whether it helped soothe the dejected travelers. But an innocent bystander took some video of the “surreal” event, probably just to make sure they weren’t experiencing a psychotic break. One witness called the session “completely the last thing we ever want to see when we’re stuck in a hermetically-sealed nightmare-place with strangers” and plead, “Dear god make the cackling stop.”

Even though I’m a yoga enthusiast, I’m going to have to second that. Scary shit. [Gothamist]

Airport Layover

Over the weekend I found myself enduring a 3-hour layover in what may be the worst airport in the world. I’m not going to name names, but it’s in Chicago and rhymes with “Bidway.” I mean, it might have been bearable if it weren’t for the sweltering concourse, the long lines for every bathroom, the astonishing lack of coffee, and frequent last-minute terminal changes that sparked frantic human stampedes. As it was, I felt like I had been banished to a particularly unpleasant section of hell for a never-ending afternoon. Here are a few ways I passed the time, and a few ways I wish I would have passed the time. Feel free to use this list next time you find yourself stuck in a terrible airport for a terrible layover…  Keep reading »

Astrology 101: How To Spot Each Sign … At The Airport

Wanderlust Week
It's time for a vacay! The Frisky can help you find the perfect destination. Read More »

When it comes to people-watching (and its astrological variation: sign spotting!), you really can’t beat the airport. There are so many intriguing people from all over the world converging at the same terminals, food courts, and painfully long security lines. In keeping with the theme of Wanderlust Week, we though it would be fun to do a roundup of how to spot each sign at the airport. Which sign is trying to charm the desk agent into a first class upgrade? Which sign is making a scene at the TSA checkpoint? Which sign just realized they forgot their passport? Read on to find out… Keep reading »

9 Do’s & Don’ts Of Airport Fashion

Flying used to be considered mega-glamorous and exciting, but these days, most people treat flying like it’s a horrible inconvenience, and dress much the same. To wit: If I see one more girl in a matching Juicy sweatsuit and Uggs in front of me in line during a TSA screening, I’m going to scream. People, you are in public. Dress better — and more practically for flying! To help you do that, I’ve assembled nine airport fashion dos and don’ts. Watch and learn.

Last week, Amelia and I saw Chloe Sevigny perform at a Pussy Riot reading and she looked great wearing a white eyelet dress. I’m generally a fan of her wacky style and purposely ugly outfits, but I’m sorry — this denim and cape-stolen-from-the-hairdresser’s look is ATROCIOUS. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]

As a rule, I try and not wear things that are both shiny and skin-tight. One or the other is passable, but both at the same time is usually a style nightmare. And Kim Kardashian’s airport outfit kind of proves that, doesn’t it? Is the top a swimsuit? Did she borrow it from mom Kris Jenner? There’s really no excuse good enough — it just looks terrible.

Most people would agree that going through airport security is annoying, and thanks to x-ray machines and frequent pat-downs, the process has become more and more invasive. This week, at the Portland airport, 50-year-old John E. Brennan decided he’d had enough, so when it came time to remove his shoes, he removed all of his clothes. Unfortunately no one else joined in the naked protest, and two security screening lanes were closed as TSA agents tried to convince Brennan to cover up. He was eventually arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and indecent exposure. The best part of this whole story might be a quote from Brennan’s father, responding to questions from reporters: “He’s never really under any stress. He works for a computer company in California. He does something with the Internet, which is just kind of mystical to me. This is quite a surprise.” [KATU]

Spray Tan Away Your Layover

Airports are already home to salons that provide 10-minute manicures so you can fix up those ragged cuticles while waiting for your flight, but now travelers will be able to solve their pasty white skin dilemmas before hopping on a plane as well. That’s right, until this Sunday, those flying through London’s Gatwick Airport can enjoy a free spray tan before jetting away to tropical destinations, as part of the Gatwick Glow program. It’s aimed at vacation-goers who’ve been holed away in cubicles all summer long and have yet to see the sun. The promoters of the safe tan plan are hoping that if travelers get a spray tan, they’ll go easy on the sun bathing during the first few days of their vacays, and therefore avoid nasty burns and possible skin cancer in the future. Personally, I think it’s a super-smart marketing plan, especially for people who have a hard time fitting personal beauty appointments into their busy work schedules. How long until other airports realize this genius and then start to charge astronomical amounts for the service? [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
