Best layover airports

Check out these 10 awesome airports for layovers.

Dallas – Remember that guy who recorded a lip-synced music video for Celine Dion’s ‘All by myself’ while being stranded in a deserted Las Vegas Airport overnight?

Well, it seems like he’s inspired a bit of a trend, as young men recently found themselves in the same position at Dallas airport and decided to make a video of all the ingenious ways they had been entertaining themselves.

Watch the video here.  

Ben Borello and Zach Searcy recently found themselves in a bit of pickle when they missed their flight from Dallas to Atlanta.  

Since it was the last flight of the day, the two faced an overnight wait… which they evidently made the most of.  

From wheel chair races to card games with ‘new friends,’ the two spent the evening entertaining themselves in whichever way they could muster, capturing each activity on video.  

The response to the YouTube video has been rather mixed. While some found it hilarious and genius, others thought it ‘childish’ and even boring.  

This is what some people had to say:

Please Ban Me - This is simply childish and immature. Some of what you were doing could easily be misconstrued as terrorism by security.  

Steve Dodds - Is this the kind of shit that passes for viral videos these days? About as funny and original as a single grain of sand on a beach that is very unfunny and unoriginal.

RPGSPiTFirE - DFW employee from Terminal E here. I gotta say, love this vid. Might have to try the slide thing over in D lol.

LivinForChrist90 - WOW! You guys make me laugh and I highly enjoyed watching this video and it made me smile and laugh:) Love you bros and y'all are awesome:) Keep it up:)
