Airline travel can be boring and tedious. Sometimes you just want to retreat into your own little world, and sometimes you would like to strike up a conversation to help time pass more quickly. If you travel frequently, you’ve probably heard all the old stand bys (no pun intended!). Who really wants to discuss the weather or your final destination? The key is to ask questions that are not too personal and can lead to conversation. Here’s a list of good airport conversation starters for the next time you’re stuck at an airport: What’s the weirdest thing you ever brought into the country? Have you ever had something in your carry-on that got confiscated? Do you ever order a special meal when you travel? How many times has the buzzer gone off when you went through security? Have you ever given up your seat in exchange for a free ticket? Have you even been on a plane that they had to de-ice before take off? What’s your favorite mode of transportation? Which airport do you hate the most? What city is easiest to clear customs in? What’s the longest delay you’ve ever had?
Good luck meeting new people and passing time with these airport conversation starters!
