We've all suffered a #TravelFail in the airport... some of us are just more vocal about it than others.
Let some of Twitter's chattier folk show you, in their own words, 13 things you shouldn't do before takeoff.13. Show up on the wrong day.
12. Show up in the wrong place.
That awkward moment when you show up for your flight too early. As in a day too early. At least I'm all packed for TOMORROW. #travelfail

10. Forget your plane battery.
It's really awesome when u make it all the way through security and realize you don't have your wallet. #airportfail

9. Cross paths with "a gaggle of birds."
Aaand... My flight is delayed because they need a battery. From Atlanta. Because it would be ridiculous to have batteries here. #airportfail

8. Overserve yourself.
Unless you fly JetBlue, JFK is a seriously ghetto airport. A gaggle of birds just flew down to eat my delicious sandwich.

So embarrassing when you offer a pregnant woman your bus seat and find you're not on a bus and she's the flight attendant and you're drunk.

6. Reek of snack chip.
One of the more embarrassing moments of my life- threw up in the aisle of the plane and then was given soap and towels to clean it up. Yep.

5. Wear a ponytail.
Dude next to me on this plane smells like pure Fritos. Not bad, actually.

2. Unwrap those pesky skincare products you bought in Iceland.
So the guy sitting next to me on the plane had the worst breathe evr. So bad I had fight back. So I farted like 3 times.

1. Spill your crate of fish.
Bought skincare products in Iceland. Just realised that all of the instructions are in Icelandic >_<;; #travelfail

Three hour flight delay, six hour flight, and a man spilled his crate of fish at the baggage claim. #TravelFail
