9 Strange Things to Do in an Airport While Waiting for Your Flight
Are you travelling anytime soon? Boredom at the airport while waiting for a flight can be stressful and even worse when you have a family with you. Plane delays happen, and in worst-case scenarios, cancellations occur. During this time, it is always good to have some fun things to do as you wait. Let’s explore the most favorable ones.
1. Play Casino at the Airport
Most people are not aware that some airports have casinos. Well, you can ask around. Most of the airports with casinos have comprehensive coverage of slots, table games, and roulette. You can play at a casino at the airport while waiting for the flight. Check this guide to find casinos in your airport. You might as well fly rich!
2. Ride on the Baggage
Life doesn’t have to be boring, not even in an airport as you wait for the flight. Some things are illegal to do within this area, and riding on the baggage is not one of them, only that people don’t do that because it’s not normal. If you feel so bored, you can jump on the baggage and enjoy a ride. It would be so relaxing, and you’ll want to sleep.
3. Tease and Flirt with People
The airport is among the places where you can meet all types of people. Tease people, kids, especially to pass the time. Do the tongue out thing to kids, wink at every handsome guy or beautiful lady that makes eye contact with you. Compliment and flirt with them. Just make sure they are not with their better half.
4. Talk to People About a Sad Movie You Watched and Get Emotional
Are you travelling alone? Well, the airport is a great place to meet like-minded people as you wait for your flight. If you love making new friends, you can do it weirdly. Start talking about a movie that you watched, especially a fiction one. While they are listening, start getting emotional and fake your sobs. People will begin gathering around. Then shout, “It was a prank!”.
5. Watch Stand-Up Comedy and Laugh Loud
Did you travel with your laptop? You are lucky. Most airports have charging ports at the waiting bay where you can plug in your laptop’s charger and watch the latest shows on platforms such as Netflix, HBO, and Showtime, among others. Take advantage of the Airport Wi-Fi and catch up with the funniest shows. Only that this time you have to do like the rolling emoji. The airport is one of the neatest places. Laugh and roll and let tears come out of your eyes.
6. Imitate the Announcer
People like to laugh, and you can be their airport celebrity when they need a Kevin Hart. When they announce a flight departure, put your hands around your mouth and imitate the speaker’s voice. Some people will laugh, others will think you are weird, while the security will think you had too much to drink. What’s important is that acting strange made someone laugh.
7. Complain About the Airplane Delay to Strangers
They say that misery loves company. Well, people love to nag when things aren’t working in their favor. Start asking the security if flights delay like that. Also, ask other passengers whether it’s normal and start complaining about how annoying it can be. Swear that you’ll buy your own plane and build an airport in your backyard. Cause a little scene, but don’t anger the security. If you trigger them, you might face the consequences of your actions. If you notice they are beginning to get angry, apologize and go back to your seat.
8. Listen to Music, Stand, and Dance
As long as you don’t create any inconveniences for passengers coming in and out of the airport, you can dance, and the security will not interfere with your fun moment. Bust all the moves you can think of, even those that you have never tried. If you are not a good dancer, I encourage you to dance at the airport because it will be pretty embarrassing and hilarious. Hopefully, your friends or family will not be around, as they can make fun of you big time. Some passengers may record you and post you on social media. You will be a star the next day. Why sit for hours at the airport when you can shake what your mama gave you?
9. Take Your Shoes, Sit on the Floor and Meditate
Take your shoes still down on the floor yoga style and start meditating. People will wonder about which world you came from, but let that not bother you. Think about the good moments and engage your inner being. People don’t usually do yoga in the airport, but it doesn’t hurt to go against the normal.
