The long lines. The uncomfortable security checks. The ill manners. The inebriation. Air travel is intrinsically unpleasant. Here, nine types of people you'll most likely encounter (and be annoyed by) at the airport.

The Imbiber
Between the drunk food and cringeworthy comments, this dream seat mate can't pass out soon enough.

The Rookie

Their enthusiasm is the opposite of contagious.

Try to see beyond their squeals and neon clothing and pity their livers.
