Pet therapy dogs at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport
If you're stressed out by flying, nothing can take it away more quickly than a fluffy dog ready to lick your face into a frenzied smile.

Walk around with your booze at Nashville International Airport.
Avail yourself of indoor pet potties at John F. Kennedy International Airport.
Controlling when your furry travel companion has to go to the bathroom is about as possible as controlling whether your flight is on time—and before the advent of indoor pet potties, dog owners could find themselves in a sticky situation beyond the security checkpoint. But at John F. Kennedy International Airport, fliers traveling with their pets can use indoor grass areas—complete with red fire hydrants—to take care of business.
Assemble your bicycle in Portland International Airport
If you're flying to or from Portland, there's a good chance you're traveling with a bike in tow. So the airport offers bicycle assembly stations, where you can build or take apart your bike with ease. You can also take your bicycle for a ride on the bike path in the airport, or leave it parked in a secure area until you return home. (Just bring you own lock.)
Hang out with a therapy pig at San Francisco International Airport
LiLou wears a tutu and painted hooves, has her own Instagram following, and is trained to entertain customers of the San Francisco International Airport with tricks, twirls, and performances on a tiny toy piano. Now that's something we would happily pay to see—but luckily, she brings passengers joy for free.
Take in a show at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport
This airport is just 10 miles from the live music capital of the world, so it should be no surprise that it built four stages in its east and west concourses where fliers can kick back and catch a show—Monday through Friday—before boarding their planes.
Play Ping-Pong at Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport
This airport offers up one very fun way to kill the time until takeoff: a free Ping-Pong table near the concourse E entrance.
