Thanks for visiting the Indigo Run Blog. In our last post, we shared some tips to help you stay healthy during your travels. Today, we’re sharing ways you can kill time while waiting at the airport. If you’re planning to travel soon, then we hope this blog gives you some inspiration for your next airport visit. We’ve turned to Reddit to learn what people online think are the best ways to stay busy the next time you wait for your flight.

If you don’t already know, Reddit is a website where people can post content such as links, text posts, and images, which people can comment and vote on. The more popular the comments in the post, the more points they receive. We found a great Reddit thread about the best ways to kill time at an airport. So, without further adieu, here is a list of ways to stay busy that received up to nearly 4,000 points on Reddit:

  • Return loose carts for the refund.

  • Walk around the whole airport. Use your wait time as an excuse to walk a 5k.

  • Two words: people watching.

  • Take a selfie in front of an easily recognizable location. Set that selfie as your default image on Facebook. Download and sign in on Tinder. Set your match distance to one mile. Write in your profile that you’ll be waiting at the location in your profile. Start matching with people.

  • Pay to enter one of the lounges. These can be costly, but the free food and comfortable chairs (even showers sometimes) are worth it if you’re waiting for a while.

  • Buy a book from one of the vendors and read it.

  • Locate the Airport Therapy Dogs and play with them.
