Woman’s Video Showing the Harsh Reality of Post-COVID Air Travel Is Such a Buzz Kill

Travel is back, but it’s certainly not as fun as it used to be! Now that the COVID-19 vaccines have rolled out, traveling is more booming than ever. After 2 years of not being able to go anywhere, everyone is dying to get on the next flight to a beach vacation, or to see their family across the world. But if you’re eager to book the flight, you may want to know this important fact.

In a video that was shared on TikTok by @theotherside_vlog, you can see first hand how travel and airport security has changed post-pandemic. If you’re headed to the airport anytime soon, you’ll need to be a little over-prepared. 

OMG! This woman filmed the security line at Charlotte airport and she says it was a 1.5 hour wait to get through it, can you imagine?! Shout out to all the parents who get to the airport 4 hours early, this is your time to shine. 

Some of the commenters are reminiscing about traveling during COVID, like user @tajed76 who said, “Ive been traveling during the pandemic, and it was the best experience ever it was cheap and tons of room on plane. Now, it’s overpriced and no room.” The only good thing to come out of the global pandemic! However, some people are also talking about the rise in prices for flights. One commenter, @alexcs51 said, “Oh, we know, check the prices 😂.” More expensive=longer waits. Makes sense! Maybe that trip to Mexico can wait until the next pandemic.
