23 Airport Photos That Are Beyond Funny

Airports, don’t you just hate them? While they can transport us almost anywhere, they are also staffed by jaded staff, unreliable luggage handlers and overzealous security staff. The worst part? The flights themselves are usually delayed, leaving passengers sleep deprived and grumpy.

However, you can also come across a series of unusual situations and sights that make the waiting around almost worthwhile.

In a brilliant gallery, we chronicle a side of traveling that will be sure to make you laugh.

1. And the most ingenious airport sleeping invention goes to….

Catching some precious rest in an airport departure lounge is never easy. For starters, you have to contend with screaming children and passengers who won’t shut up about their all-inclusive holiday to Miami, but when times are hard, you can always rely on a newspaper for a makeshift blanket.

2. It ain’t easy traveling with kids

Nobody said having kids was going to be easy, but taking them from one part of the world to the other can be a different proposition altogether. But fear not tired parents, this dad may have just found the cure to all your problems: the suitcase. While we don’t suggest you put your child in it, they seem more than capable of latching themselves onto it.

3. When you construct a ‘comfortable’ sleeping position

This man was clearly beyond tired, otherwise, he wouldn’t have bothered to engineer such a god-awful sleeping position. How is it even possible to feel relaxed in that position?”

4. When you’ve had enough

Being a parent isn’t for the fainthearted or suited to those who value their independence. Just look at the state of this poor man! Our prayers are with you, buddy!

5. There are weird sleeping positions…. and there’s this

We’ve already seen waiting passengers adopt a series of strange sleeping positions, but we can only assume that this man let the waiting play with his sanity.

If airports introduced sleeping pods, we think passengers would be much happier. Poor woman!

7. Sleeping under eye-catching blankets; do not disturb

This looks awfully silly, but at least it’s an upgrade on newspapers. If you’re going to master the art of sleeping in airports, then this photo should certainly be in the instruction manual.

8. When desperate times call for desperate measures

Or you can just be like this woman and not give a damn about passing strangers. Sleep is important!

9. 2 for the price of 1

Why are people so thrifty with their money? Surely they’d realize that this plan would never work? And how on earth did the poor guy even breathe? This is all kinds of no!

10. Daddy’s flight school money hasn’t paid off

While it might be foam on the ground rather than ice, it still beggars belief that a trained pilot could crash a plane without it even taking off.
