It’s inevitable sometimes, but delayed flights do happen and boy are they annoying! Some people take to social media to rant about the disruption to their trip, others however find more creative ways to pass the time. We scoured Instagram for the best reactions to flight delays and we weren’t disappointed! Take a look for yourselves;
10. Playing Pilot ✈
Loti doesn’t seem too bothered by the easyJet delay; she got a first hand view from the cockpit. Lucky lady!
9. Start ’em young 👶
This little guy is too cute to care about his delay, and seems to be taking the disruptions pretty well.
8. No paps, please ✋
Oh kids, we feel ya! Your flight’s been delayed, you’re tired, you missed your tea date with your teddy and you won’t be back in time to catch the latest episode of PJ Masks that you missed whilst away.
7. What a rush (of blood to the head) 🤸
We think there should be a dedicated yoga room at airports; it’s not only a great way to pass the time, but it’s really beneficial before a flight to loosen tight muscles and prepare your mind and body. Headstands are optional
6. Oh snow you didn’t just make a pun… 😆
Hehe, sorry. That’s why this one got our vote
5. We wouldn’t mind a delay if we got to watch this every time 💪
There’s just something magical about watching acro yoga. The trust, the elegance, the strength. Bravo!
4. Um, need we say more. LOOK AT THE PASTRIES! 👀
It would be rude not to indulge in a pastry or 3 when they are just sat there, staring at you, trying to comfort your inner turmoil over your delayed flight…
3. I mean, you did fall asleep… 🤷
Rule no.1 when you go away with the lads. Don’t fall asleep as things like this WILL happen to you. Rookie mistake
2. “Judgey Cat, Judgey Cat, why are you staring at me?” 😼
It’s a lovely photo, but the cat is creepy and judgey nonetheless. Especially if you were snacking on one of the pastries above…
A one and a half hour flight delay and I’m stuck with this guy silently judging me.

1. Who doesn’t love a board game!? 🎲
Yes, people may be annoyed at the sound of others having fun, but so what? Rather than sit and wallow in anger and frustration, these guys are using their new spare time to enjoy themselves and create a pleasant atmosphere. And I’d totally want to join in with them, too!
