    an enjoyable travel experience begins when a passenger arrives at the airport.

    For me, it doesn’t really begin until TSA gropes my junk.

      See, for me, it’s not until I’m shoe-horned into my seat on the airplane in cattle class.

    My enjoyable experience is seeing someone’s checked bag come sliding down the carousel open and then all of their belongings slowly trickling out every minute or so. Those baggage handlers are so lazy they don’t bother closing the bags up after they steal from them.
