Just reading the words airport delays brings up that sinking feeling everyone gets when they look up at the flight information board and see the dreaded word flash on the screen: DELAYED. It can be especially frustrating for business travelers who need to be on time for that important meeting. But don’t fret! Boston Corporate Coach™ has come up with some great ways to spend your time at the airport so you can make the most of a flight delay.
Do some work! Find a power outlet, plug in your laptop or tablet and finish that lingering report or finally answer those emails you’ve been putting off. This will give you a sense of achievement as you can continue to tick tasks off your to-do list in your make-shit airport office.
Have a bite to eat You might have run out of the house or the office in a rush without taking time to eat, so use the flight delay as an opportunity to refuel and set yourself up for the day. Try to avoid the usual junk food that is commonly available in airports if you can – this can often leave you feeling lethargic later in the day. Go for a freshly prepared salad or sandwich and grab a coffee to give your energy levels a boost.
Read A flight delay is a great opportunity to settle down and read without any distraction. Whether it’s a novel, catching up with the news, or reading about the latest research in your industry, time at the airport can give the chance to focus for a change. If you are traveling for a conference or an important meeting, try reading around the topic or familiarizing yourself with presenters or attendees.
Catch up with family and friends When you’re busy at work, your personal life can suffer. Use the time waiting for a flight to reach out to friends or family who you may not have been in touch with recently due to your hectic schedule. Email, message, or even give them a call – and make sure you take advantage of any free airport Wi-Fi to avoid going overboard on your data allowance.
