The 15 absolute worst people in the airport

Hell on earth.

AIRPORTS BRING OUT the worst in people. It’s true.

If you’ve ever got on a flight without being consumed by rage at one of these people, we salute you.

1. The people who leave it to the last minute to get their stuff out for security

These rules have been in place for more than a decade now. You know they’re going to want your belt. TAKE OFF YOUR BELT.

2. Then refuse to move down while putting their belongings back in their bags

3. The ones who cause a fuss when told they’re not allowed bring a certain item in hand luggage

You poor lamb.

4. The people who stand RIGHT behind you in the queue

Why do #lifesjourney always seem to start and end like this? #airportqueue #homewardbound #adventure #journeys Instagram / holidayworldtravel Instagram / holidayworldtravel / holidayworldtravel

Lest anyone doubt that they are next.

5. The people who try to cut the passport line

It’s very obvious that you’re hovering there in the hope of squeezing in behind some unaware person. We’re on to you.

6. The people who stop dead in front of you with their wheely suitcases

Pull yourself off to the side, then pull yourself together, for god’s sake.

7. The people who wait at the closed boarding gate

We all have tickets. We all have seats. We’re all getting on the plane. Calm down.

8. The people who stand up to wait for the plane doors to open

FYI...standing up as soon as the plane lands will NOT make you get out any faster. Instagram / flygirlboutik Instagram / flygirlboutik / flygirlboutik

Congratulations! You’re still on the plane, AND you’re uncomfortable!

9. The people who stand still on the moving walkway

Are you unaware of the purpose of the moving walkway? Just wondering.

10. The people taking pictures of their airport pints for Facebook

“Be rude not to…” Rude either way, TBH.

11. The people who put their jackets in the overhead bins


12. The ones who ignore basic airplane rules

You know they’re going to ask you to put up your tray table and open your window blind before takeoff. Why are you pretending this is not so?

13. Stag/hen party groups

Sorry guys. You’re bad.

14. The person whose bag is clearly too big for the overhead bins

But there they are, holding up the boarding queue, trying to ram it in.

15. The people who loom over the baggage carousel, grabbing any bag that looks like theirs

We’re all anxious to get out of this airport. Do you have to be so obnoxious about it?
