Here are hilarious tweets that describe the modern horrors of air travel to get you through your day spent traveling.

When We Find a Place In The Airport That Has Somewhat Alright Tasting Food

We Always Forget How Awful It Is To Travel With Kids Until We Have To Travel With Kids Again
Traveling with kids should be an olympic sport. Especially if you have four kids. You need to make sure you have separate DVD players, and separate toys for each of them. How many times do you think you’ll probably have to tell them to stop yelling on the plane? Or to stop kicking the seat in front of them?

With the amount of money were spending on the flight itself and the awful food, the least you can do is allow us the liberty of some free wifi.
If You’re a Mythology Buff, You’ll Get This

Traveling Is A Really Great Way To People Watch
Let’s be honest, traveling is a great way to get some good people watching in. It seems airports are one of the only places where weird things are accepted.

Airports Can Sometimes Bring Out The Worst In People

The Moments Between Landing and Getting Off The Plane Are The Absolute Worst
