Waiting in airports is often a bore for adults, but it can be downright painful with children. Taking kids in the duty-free shops is a potentially expensive and guaranteed stressful experience. Running around an empty gate area gets old or impossible if all gates around you end up being used.
So, what to do?
Homework, of course! Research the airports you’ll be flying through, and find out what amenities they offer. Since we’re thrifty around here, you won’t see any recommendations suggesting pricey day passes to airport lounges or expensive in-airport spa treatments.
