Complete with heels hitting the luggage. Perfect.
Ugh, I hate that feeling so much.
They need to make some of those wheelie suitcases for people with long legs lol
Or have the extendable arms have a kink in them so you pull it behind but the suitcase sits to the side of you
edit: I'm just a big picture guy. I don't like to get bogged down with 'physics'.
This sounds like it would look hilarious and trip a lot of other people in the airport lol
The worst is when it hits the handle out of your hand and it smacks the ground in 140db.
So you’re saying they should make suitcases with wheelie long handles?
That’s why you push them instead. You won’t hit your legs again.
Then it jams on something and you ram the handle into your stomach at jogging speed (have had it happen to me)
They make them! They have handles that you hold to the side of you, the luggage fully upright
We just need a robot helper to follow us around everywhere and carry our luggage
There’s ones with 4 wheels that you can push in front of or alongside you - it alleviates that problem if you’re not in a hurry
Happens for us short people too! You can’t escape it!
I love how he checks his watch
“Still got an hour til my flight, gotta keep running”
I have an hour to my delayed flight
Tbh, I would run more often when late if it was socially acceptable. Notice that walking fast hurts a lot and makes you really tired, but it's acceptable. In the other hand running (not sprinting to death) is more efficient and less tiring, though people will judge you (not in an airport though).
If I see a runner in plain clothes, I ALWAYS think one of two things.
He just broke the law in some way.
FUCKING ZOMBIES! GOTTA GET THE FUCK OUT OF HERE!
Akshually, skipping has been proven to be more efficient than running. It's just not socially acceptable so we don't do it. Same with the granny shot and free throws. Stupid social norms, who decides them?
Thats why children like to skip and will natural throw a ball underhanded.
I see people running in suits (presumably late to work) on my morning commute nearly every day. I always juggle back and forth that someone important enough to need a suit couldn't plan their day well enough to be on time or that they're so important they literally can't be late (which also doesn't make sense).
I'm all about that electric scooter life. You don't look in a hurry, people assume you're a little goofy but running to work and showing up a bit disheveled is a worse image by far.
Just because people are successful or important doesn't mean they are good at planning their day
& people can’t always plan for traffic / literally anything out of the ordinary that might cause them to become late
I remember in college I was trying to explain to a professor (not an exam day thank goodness) that I was late to class because of my cat. my cat bolted out of my front door when I was leaving and she ran UNDER the house, where I couldn’t crawl to get her. She was having the time of her life rolling around on dirt and watching me call for her from the side of the building. I wasn’t just going to leave her there as the property wasn’t fenced and she didn’t have her collar on. I had to wait until she finally made her way back out, and was v disheveled by the time I finally got to class
I remember taking the subway to an interview. I got out at the right station but took wrong exit. I had only 5 mins left since, in my head, I was 5 mins early to the correct building/exit.
The tunnel system connected both buildings. I had to run outside downtown, much faster than tunnel, at 7:55am with a nice navy wool suit.
This wasn’t jogging. This was pure sprint. When they welcomed me inside. They said “welcome” and I replied “I uhhhhhhg a....uughhham .... p...breathe pleased deep chaotic breath tobehereitsa- breathe -nhonour.”
Gotta run to the new terminal to get the seat next to the outlet. Pace yourself. Your phone deserves it.
Found the dad.
If the flight was delayed wouldn’t that mean you had more time ?
Late arrival for your connection and delayed are two different things.
Yep... Late arrival connecting flight.
This guy is probably not even checked in though since one of those bags has to be checked.
Nah, you forget that the convenient rolling one is his, the heavy, unwieldy, brown one is his wife's or MIL's. Carrying theirs not only reduces their burden, but incentivizes them to keep up.
Traveling is stressful for a lot of people. Things usually go fine, but when they don't (say you encounter a 30 minute-long line to check your bags, followed by a 45 minute-long line through security), budgeting "enough" time can quickly turn out to have been insufficient. This produces anxiety, as the consequences of missing a flight are high. It's worth budgeting more than enough time not only to avoid those consequences, but to make traveling a happier experience for everyone.
I once showed up for a 5:30 AM flight the night before and was gonna sleep at the airport so I didn't have to wake up and drive an hour to get there in time. Turned out I was too nervous to sleep at the airport because I thought I'd oversleep and miss my flight.
Why be on time when you can be early?
even reading this conversation made me anxious. if i'm flying intl i will be at the gate at least 2h before boarding.
If you have extra time in DFW, just ride the trains around. It's fun!
Whats a MIL? Is it something I should know about? Do I have one? Should I have one?
Malfunction Indication Light, same as a CEL
I SWEAR IT'LL FIT
Ah, the old late arrival connecting flight...
I was flying home from a business trip, my first flight was delayed by an hour... my second flight was supposed to depart half an hour after the original arrival time. I figured I was going to be super late getting home in the end because I would miss my connection.
Getting off the first flight, the pilot is standing at the door, says, “have a nice day,” I say, “yeah, it’s not likely at this point,” out of pure frustration.
I sprint across LaGuardia to my next gate, turns out the second flight is delayed waiting for crew.
I finally board, and the pilot says, “welcome back!”
It was the same crew from the first flight.
Not true. You don't have to check one of the bags as long as you meet the requirements for it and pay for an overhead.
Depends what airline you’re on.
What fancy pants airline are you travelling on that allows 2 full sized cabin bags in the cabin for 1 person? 1 cabin bag and a small backpack sure(and nowadays you are lucky to be allowed the backpack too) - but not 2 full size cabin bags.
Almost all of the main airlines I fly with let me pack my pretty average-to-big backpack with a laptop and other crap in it plus a roller that goes overhead. Never had an issue except when I board last and all the overhead is taken. That hand bag looks like it could fit under a seat.
This was me last month. Shanghai to Hong Kong. Arrived in Shanghai late, and they informed us we had 5 minutes. Even better, we realized we left one wheel of our travel stroller on the plane but no time to go back for it! So I was holding a baby, her backpack, my backpack, her diaper bag, the 3/4 wheeled stroller, and a suitcase. I had to run for my life. It was fucking awful, I honestly almost fainted because I couldn't breathe.
I have pstd from the Madrid airport because of a late arrival and a huge airport.
Not entirely true: When you connect through the US from South America to Canada they actually delay your landing, then make you collect your luggage, clear customs then re-clear security then try to get to your connection.
In 45 minutes instead of 2 hours. They also offer zer0 support to get you through the queues.
Love LaGuardia... 3/10 will regrettably have to do it again.
Ehh depends on your ticket. If you buy a regular coach on delta/united (not economy coach) you can bring both of those. 1 personal item (the hand bag) and 1 carry on (roller suit case).
If the overhead gets full, they'll check the roller bag for free.
Now you're right if you're flying budget airlines or use budget tickets.
No he could stow the red one in the overhead and the other can go under the seat in front.
The one he's carrying might fit under the seat in front of him. Or of it's an American Airlines flight, he'll put both above row 5 even though he's sitting in row 20.
Pretty sure OP means the scenario where the first flight was delayed, resulting in a very tight window of time to make the connection flight. Anyone who has traveled DFW knows the sight of out-of-shape people attempting to run down the halls with their luggage
Christ or even worse Charlotte. The amount of explanation in this thread is cracking me up.
He is the pilot, the plane's delayed because of him.
He has extra time, so he’s running away from the airport.
Right, training for the flights that have been delayed for me recently would involve drinking at an airport bar on the company card.
He could be a late arrival for his delayed flight.
Perhaps it was a mental delay?
The title doesn't specify late arrival. It could've been a late takeoff. If your first flight is delayed due to maintenance or weather, you will be rushing for your connecting flight at your first stop.
Did this guy really bring his luggage to his public gym for a joke?
I support the commitment +1
It's probably the hotel gym.
I work at a hotel, our gym is used frequently and by many haha
I have a FB friend that finishes every (and I literally mean EVERY) sentence he types with "haha". No period, just "haha".
Is he an anime character?
Looks like a hotel gym to me
He also needs to somehow be juggling his passport and boarding pass for authenticity
boarding pass stuffed in passport clenched between your teeth.
I've actually done this. Don't recommend.
I've never not done this
Shirt pocket is how the pros do it
I always wear leggings when I travel but then that means no pockets, so I've definitely put it in my bra before :/
They now have leggings with pockets, they literally changed my life! Perfect size for a cell phone and passport.
Please don’t give people your sweaty boob boarding passes... and money for that matter. I’ve been handed money drenched in it
Pshh speak for yourself, some people pay extra for boob sweat
My boobs aren't big enough for that to be an issue, thankfully. I also usually keep it in my bag and it's only after they hand it back to me when I get flustered and just shove it there temporarily so as not to hold up the security line.
Still counts! It's all about adapting
I've stopped buying anything else from them because I was disappointed with the quality, but Athleta has leggings with pockets and after months of frequent wear they're still in great shape.
"You wanna know how I got these scars?"
Running running FUCK WHERE'S MY BOARDING PASS
Finds it he’s in wrong terminal.
That's ok. His flight was delayed so he has plenty of time. He's just in this for the cardio.
I always get drunk on the bar while watching the group 1 through n-1 passengers board the plane while smugly thinking to myself that they are just going to be sitting on a plane for longer.
But one time I had like two minutes to board and I realized I was in the wrong terminal.
This happened to me in LaGuardia on my first international flight
Pro tip, look at the airport map before leaving for your trip. To have a better idea where terminals, coffee/snacks, anything else will be.
The real functional training
It's the new CrossFit called GetThere. Other exercises are armrestling (not a typo), bin stuffing, terrorist takedown, and the classic rebook stampede.
Where do I sign up?
If the flight was delayed shouldn’t he just be sitting then?
Delayed first flight, so less layover time to get to the second flight. Least that's what I thought.
Seriously, why does everyone own a Louis Vuitton bag?
They are extremely durable, fireproof, water proof, and last for a very long time. I talked to a lady on my last flight about hers and she'd had it for 25 years and it still looked new.
I never really understood it, until my wife got one. I started reading about them more and they're basically buy for life bags.
And as some comments have said for some people it's a status thing, plus there's the faux status thing where people want to have that "status" and buy fake ones, which is probably a decent amount of them as they are highly knocked off ... However,if you know a little about LV bags, knock off are pretty easy to spot usually.
can confirm - have two sisters and every designer bag they own is fake but every bag they own is designer.
True story. My wife's bag has been through over 25,000 miles of travel and looks new. I would have paid over $5,000 in $100 bags by now with all the crap that these bags have been through.
Depends on the bag. Their classic bag like you see here lasts a long time but some of their bags with more leather age and crack pretty quickly.
The last time I traveled there were a lot of women with Victoria 's Secret bags. I guess I'm not the only one who needs $75 worth of product every time they offer a ”free” bag.
Atlanta airport, From hell's heart, I stab at thee. For hate's sake, I spit my last breath at thee.
Just commented that this was me at ATL a few weeks ago ...
It was my first time connecting through ATL ... I had a little over an hour layover ... I believe I came in gate B and departed at E ... Made it to the gate about 10 minutes before boarding ... but I'm also sadistic and walked it instead of taking the train .. I missed the first train and figured it would be faster to walk it .. nope ...
Bless you my child.

Why would you need to run for a delayed flight?
Incoming was delayed, outgoing connection on time. And it's at the other fucKING END OF OHARE FUUUUUUUCK!!
Actually this should be titled "Training for the Gate Change". Because your connection flight gate will get changed and it will be from A to Q with no tram. Trust me...
Me running from one side of O’Hare to the other because I chose the cheapest flight and only have 15 minutes until boarding.
if your flight is delayed you have plenty of time to get there...
So this is current state of CrossFit huh.
Please can someone explain this. If the flight is delayed then why is the guy rushing?
If the flights delayed there’s no need to hurry...
He missing few obstacles, like ‘strolling ‘ passengers who thinks they are at a mall.
this is every dad rushing to the gate even though the flight isn’t scheduled to take off for another three hours
The red shoes add 5 HP
You know final count down by Europe is playing during this video
Delayed flight he would be drinking
Training for Amazing Race?
He needs a kid in a stroller and a woman screaming at him from behind.
Once I booked across O'Hare airport, first flight was delayed. Had tickets for a show that night. We got to the gate, and the door was still open. Such a relief, until we gave our tickets.
"Oh, we didn't think you'd make it so we gave your seats away."
The $20 meal coupons didn't make up for the $150 a seat show we missed.
If the flight is delayed why is he in a hurry?
If the flight is delayed. Why be in a hurry?
As air airport worker his form is excellent. But my tip would be take the bag and loop the straps around the handle of the suitcase and it will rest on top leaving your other hand to flail wildly at the gate agent when you get near or hold your phone that you check the time on every two seconds.
WE SLEPT IN!
Delayed flight transfer
if the flight was delayed he wouldn't need to run
The only reason I've ever had to run was because my first flight was delayed. Second one was on time.
Could've used some training because of the delayed flight.
These people stress me out at airports.
Play how you practice.
This is practical exercise. You could add running for the bus with a coat and work shoes, dancing, and sex...
delayed passenger you mean
For a delayed flight? OP never been to the airport confirmed
Functional fitness amiright
needs more toddler
