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

20 Ways To Pass The Time During A Layover In A Horrible Airport

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…

That’s A Lot Of Look: Kim Kardashian Fouls Out

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 hi…

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.
