We’ve all heard the terms – Dad jeans, Dad jokes…but what about Airport Dads? It’s the latest Dad thing.

So what is an airport Dad?  See if you or have an an Airport Dad in your life.

Signs of Airport Dads:

  1.  Arrives 4 hours before a flight- don’t want to rush!
  2.  Constantly monitor routes, flight status, and weather conditions.
  3. Pre-weighs everyone in families bags to make sure they’re under weight limit
  4. In charge of everyone’s passports in the family

In fact, 40% of fathers became Airport Dads because they believe they’re the best person to handle family travel and get everyone there without any issues.

Hats off Airport Dad!  As a mom, it’s nice to not be in charge. 🙂
