Stranded at the Airport? Here's How to Survive

Genevieve Fish

I recently found myself at Gatwick Airport awaiting a flight that was supposed to take me to Los Angeles on a Wednesday afternoon, and ended up not departing until mid-afternoon the following day. Mind you, this flight was never officially cancelled. Rather, it was pushed back in half-hour increments for a total of twenty-two hours. Luckily I’d had a wonderful trip and used my positive energy and bag full of airport necessities to make it through a night at the airport without losing my patience. But there were a few things I really wish I had known before enduring the worst delay of my life. In light of that, I’ve put together a survival guide for extended airport layovers that should help you avoid some of the low points of my experience.
