The thought of going on holiday is always pleasant, but many of us dread a trip to the airport. And with good reason! No one enjoys long queues, waiting around for hours or tedious body scans.

We all hope our journey will run smoothly, but sometimes there is just  no way of escaping some of these typical airport nightmares:

1) Queues that seem to go on for kilometers!
