Check-in queues, delays, taking your shoes off at security - there's a lot of stress and boredom that comes with getting through the airport. But none comes close to the irritation caused by your fellow travellers...

The Unhappy Baby
Holidays are supposed to be fun, but this kid has clearly missed the memo. They cry at customs, they scream through security and you can just bet they’ll be on your plane.
“What do you mean I’m not allowed liquids?!” God knows what rock this guy’s been living under; the first-timer is eternally shocked and outraged by the most basic security rules. You might feel sorry for them if you weren’t stuck behind them in the line…
