There are a lot of things in life that are somehow simultaneously both great and terrible. Flying in a plane is one of those things.
Air travel can be super efficient, and honestly really exciting. I always get pumped up waiting in an airport because to me, it makes me feel fancy and important to be boarding a plane regardless of where I'm headed.
However, the cramped quarters of crowded plane cabins aren't a pleasurable experience, especially on longer flights. There's always going to be a sick guy; a crying baby; a woman with too much perfume; a dude who steals your arm rest.
