Best and Worst Airports Where You Can Find a Date

Thinking of finding that special someone but tired of going to regular places where you can meet people? Perhaps you can start trying at airports. For a place that supposedly connects one place to another, airports can also bring two people together. Instead of boring yourself waiting in that lounge for your plane, why not strike a conversation with that interesting-looking traveler? Maybe you are bound for the same direction, perhaps even sharing the same flight. All the better-you can continue your friendship in that foreign country the two of you will be visiting. And what better way to get to know someone that by being strangers in a foreign country?

A study was done to determine what city-or airport-is best for meeting and hitting it off with someone. The statistics of delayed flights, the amenities and weather are, apparently, all play important roles. San Francisco International for example, ranks high in visitor satisfaction, because of the many shops, bookstores, restaurants, bars, and even museum exhibits. So even if you get stuck inside the airport because of a delayed flight, aimless strolling might lead you to someone interesting.

And as for the airports with the fewest delayed flights, great weather, and few shops, well, the only time you may have to spend inside the airport is to pick up your luggage.

The following are considered as the best airports for picking up a date:

Liberty in New Ark

Delays in flights are almost always expected here, but dont worry, because the airports fifty two restaurants and bars will keep you occupied-and even have you chatting with someone. If you really meet someone and your flights cancelled, head on to Manhattan for a real date.

John F. Kennedy in New York

Best and Worst Airports Where You Can Find a Date

Considered by many to be one of the worlds ugliest airports, and delays in flights for over an hour is expected, JFK will treat you to a beer garden, a wine bar and, for the weary travelers, four spas. But the JetBlues T5 terminal is a great hangout, with its dimly-lit interiors.

Philadelphia

Best and Worst Airports Where You Can Find a Date

Philadelphias airport has over a hundred and sixty shops and restaurants, which is good because for 247 days a year, visibility outside is obscured, and there are a lot of waiting. Spend time walking around the place to do a little shopping-both for items and for prospective dates.

Dallas/Fort Worth

Best and Worst Airports Where You Can Find a Date

The five terminals inside Dallas/Fort Worth have fourteen airline clubs where you can meet strangers and fellow passengers. These are relaxed places where you can hangout and strike a conversation with others. You need to be a member to get in, but nearly all of the clubs have day passes which will give you access to snacks, the bar, and business centers.

Minneapolis/St. Paul

Best and Worst Airports Where You Can Find a Date

With 85 days of snow, 38 days of thunderstorms, and 96 with fog, the amount of delays and cancelations of flight are almost always unavoidable. But there are four gaming arcades for the young ones, and sixteen bars or breweries all over, so youll never be bored inside this airport.

Planning a Cheap Vacation on an Expensive Destination

A lot of people thought that visiting Aspen, Paris, New York, Napa, and Hawaii meant that youd have to bring a lot of money. Most of them spend their whole lives saving up for that one trip. Spending too much on a single trip, though, isnt very practical. Neither is it a smart choice, because you can save as much as half of the peak season cost if you only know when to book your trip.

Sometimes, you dont even have to time it during the off-season. A lot of people wait for the rates to take a dip during the high season (airplane companies do hold promos) before they purchase their tickets. These discounts range from 20% to a spectacular 50%, so you should definitely keep your eyes peeled.

Maybe theyre not as cheap as your less-than-stellar summer destinations. However, they are at least more affordable during these times. Below are the most desired travel destinations and the best times to book your flight.

London on spare change

Planning a Cheap Vacation on an Expensive Destination

London can be a pretty pricey destination especially if youre coming from miles and miles away. However, if you book your flights from November through March, youll find the hotel rates lower than usual. This is probably due to the fact that these are the colder months, and most people in Europe travel to other parts of the world to enjoy warmer climates.

If youre from Los Angeles, though, a bit of the cold biting your knickers wont do you harm. You might just find the old country charm of London an experience worth investing in, at least for a week or so. Good news, too, because during these cold months, the British Airways and Virgin Atlantic dish out their cheapest airfares. This will give you more money to spend on exquisite London cuisine and much-needed culture.
With the holidays just around the corner, London is also teeming with plays and dances to go to. If youre a party animal, you might just find pubs in London which give you a little bit of Ireland without actually going to Ireland. Whichever way you choose to spend your time here, you can immerse yourself in the English folks elusive Rs without putting a dent on your wallet.

Zooming to Hawaii

Planning a Cheap Vacation on an Expensive Destination

For years, now, this honeymoon destination remained a permanently expensive summer spot, thanks to its pristine beaches and untouchable Hawaiian charm. However, if theres anything good about the recession, its the fact that it made a lot of expensive vacation spots slightly more affordable for ordinary people like you and me. Most of the hoteliers in Hawaii now offer the lowest room rates its ever offered in years.

The airfares to Hawaii also dropped to at least 1/3 of its usual rate. The deals even sweeter if you travel during the low-peak season which is between September and early December. Of course, low seasons in a summer get away means a few rain clouds and showers here and there. If occasional showers wont dampen your mood, though, you should go ahead and book your flight during this time.
