Sleeping in airports can be dangerous or illegal, but spending overnight in the airport is a cheap travel choice some people make. That is not to say that it is comfortable by any means. This is not a night at the Ritz. In fact, I can’t really imagine a worse place to sleep.
This cuddly duo, for whatever reason, decided to cozy up and sleep right here on this bench. I wonder how many minutes of shut-eye they actually clocked while using each other as human headrests!
It is hard not to like his outfit, especially when you take a peek at that statement bag. WOW. Is he going to New York Fashion Week? Is he a celebrity going incognito? You probably should not take fashion advice from this pink fanatic, unless you want to show up somewhere looking like a huge piece of bubblegum.
I think it is safe to say that this is the way to go if you want to be absolutely certain that no one talks to you at the airport, or while on the plane. I think this guy is a genius. It is all a ruse so no one talks to him! Be anti-social, but do it in style!
Bears on the Runway
Welcome to Alaska! Onlookers were freaking out when they saw this polar bear on the runway at an airport in Alaska. It’s not uncommon for airports to have issues dealing with bird strikes, but issues like this one in icy Alaska are a bit rarer. Just look at what's going on here...
This polar bear somehow found his way onto a runway at Utqiagvik. Airport personnel are not authorized to haze or chase the protected marine mammals. Security at the airport said they were happy the bears ran toward a snow dump rather than airport buildings or equipment, where they could have been a danger to people outside vehicles.
Airports can be a strange place at times — and if you’re looking for a good laugh, you’ll be sure to find one. Like this guy, for instance. This guy turns an uncomfortable situation into something he can use — an ordinary airport chair into a fancy footrest.
Using his backpack as a pillow seems quite uncomfortable, though. We wonder why he chose that as his main source of comfort for this cat-nap. A rolled-up sweatshirt could have been a slightly better option, no? Either way, mad props to this guy for absolutely not caring what anyone thinks, and here’s hoping he doesn’t have a stiff neck when he wakes up!
Making Chairs Into a Bed
I’m parking right here for the night! When you are tired and you have to catch long-haul connection flights, there is absolutely nothing worse than not having a warm, cozy bed to snuggle up in and sleep off your jet lag while you wait for the next leg of your journey.
But there’s always one solution as a last resort, you can create a makeshift bed out of airport furniture. While sleeping in the airport is actually not legal, this tired traveler found a way to get a little bit of shuteye. Major props to her!
