According to a recent survey by, 35% of us find airports stressful.

The rush to check in and the queue to get through security are only a taster of the hell you’re about to experience. The dreaded ‘wait in lounge’ sign makes us all nervous, until boarding time has come and gone and we are sitting outraged next to a screaming child.

However, it seems that most of us will put up with delays, rude service and cancellations in return for a cheap fare.

According to the results the best airline was British Airways with 19.1% of the vote. This was followed by Virgin – 13.8%, Thomson Airways – 6.4%, Easy Jet – 4.9% and Emirates – 3.7%.
