Why do you choose to line up for 30 minutes when there is a perfectly good seat just minutes away?
This is always one of the most baffling things to me in an airport. A gate announcement is made and everyone jumps to attention. Whether it be an international flight from China to UK or a domestic flight from Sydney to Melbourne, people love to queue! I’ve sat in a gate to the point where my name has been called! I’d rather spend less time waiting and more time being productive.
Do you arrive early to the airport as recommended or do you arrive with 10 minutes to spare?
For me, it depends on where the flight is going and how new I am to that place. In Melbourne, I sometimes arrive with 1 minute to spare, but in China I allowed myself 2.5 hours –with no idea how Airport security was.
I do understand with Ryanair that people want to get a good seat and hence the line up in the photo below – but to my dear fellow travelers, really…. You are all going to the same destination – there is one plane with sufficient seats – you’re gonna make it!
I shall continue with my more relaxed travel style and sit and watch my fellow travelers as I type my stories and share them all with you.
What type of traveler are you? Early bird or a persistent procrastinator?
