Travel is bliss but for some boarding an aircraft is a stressful task. How many of us have seen or know people praying under their breaths before take-off? But it's not just being on the aircraft, but just the sheer amount of procedure before boarding the flight can make some anxious; For instance -
1. The airport starts to look really claustrophobic, if you have long hours of layovers or delayed flights.
2. Stress, builds up the moment you see traffic on the roads. The one hour buffer period is then auto tuned to 45 minutes.
3. Security checks , baggage tags and all the other procedural mandates start to get to your nerves.
4. Airport terminals and gate numbers can get confusing.
5. But, amidst all of this, imagine, if you had a wagging tail waiting just before your boarding time.
