These cats know how you feel during your flight

Welcome to Cheapflights

The simple way to find cheap flights and hotels from all your favorite travel companies

From check-in to landing, the process of flying can be a roller coaster of emotions. The view from up high is so worth the angst we endure to get there, but why do we get so worked up over airport processes? These cats feel your pain and are here to offer a bit of light relief, of should we say “flight relief.”

…Panic over, it’s in your pocket. You’re checked-in, with loads of spare time (*feeling smug*). To the bar?!

You’re one step closer to your destination. It’s all running smoothly…

…but then they announce your flight is delayed.

All is not lost, the food trolley’s on its way… that smell! You’re suddenly starving, but there are at least another 50 seats to go…

Now you need to go to the bathroom. You get stuck between two food trolleys and cause havoc trying to pass… everyone’s looking…

…and when you make it to the door there’s someone in there. You cross your legs and try to think about something else…

You make it back to your seat just as the trolley arrives… the menu looks tasty — tuna pasta bake, YES! Life’s good again…

…”Cabin crew, please prepare for landing…” You made it. Quick! Grab your carry-on! Better get in the aisle before the people behind push in front… Who will make it the baggage claim first?

Game on.
