Well you heard it here first, getting delayed at the airport? could be the best thing that happens to you this holiday season, yeah, you heard me right. Forget about camping out by your gate and sitting in the chair, you can do just about anything at the airport these days from a little last minute/ holiday shopping, /i've done that, to teeth whitening.

Yes, Bianna Golodryga's here to explain. Teeth whitening? teeth whitening, you can do a whole lot more, too. Now for years, you've been going to the airport, and you know you've been dealing1 with long lines, longer delays, and those massive headaches, well those days are long gone.

Spending hours at the airport has never been so much fun. From live music in Nashville in Portland, to art exhibits in Denver, even a 24 hour fitness in Las vegas. Many of the nation's airports now do more than just get you to destination, they / are destination.

Delays are up and so there's an opportunity for airports to do more. In fact /, travel retail2 sales soared to more than 29 billion dollars last year, a nearly 7.5% increase over the year before, so with 75% of travel delays this year traced back to New York area runways, we took a trip to JFK, one of the country's busiest airports.

Whether it's to take/ care of last minute errands or to simply unwind before a long flight. Airports are no longer just about travel, look at me, I'm getting a reflexology treatment. We found other passengers being primped and pampered3 with mayonnaise and massages5 at this Xpress spa, who come here most? surprisingly it's men.

What are you go/nna / do for 2 hours, you get a massage4, you got to do this free...
I've been walking around for about 6 hours, so I just thought i wanted to sit down, might as well get a foot massage.

There's even a dentist on site here offering everything from / emergency root-canals to one hour teeth whitening. Time is of essence, why not get your work done at the airport, and between flights or of these delays, we send them on the way with a great bright smile. We also found several chapels6 for all the dominations. And arcade7 for kids, big and small. And who needs the mall, there's enough retail therapy at airports today to relieve any last minutes shopper.

Airports are realizing /that not only can they make money if they can keep people happier in the airports, but they can be part of the overall experience. And let's face it, the flying experience could use a little left.

And this is just the beginning, airport operatives are saying that they are gonna / add more choices for flyers of travellers of all times. Some airports like in phoenix8, even have / park areas for your pets, so you can relax and have your pets with you right there. And Chris, I don't know if you noticed, but I was kind of surprised just to see so many /men at the spas and they actually make up the majority /of frequenters, so I've brought you a little Bling nail file.

Oh, I need one of these. I need one of these. people keep taking my nail files.

And it's quite masculine and blue.
No, it's good, it's put fraze off my eyes, a little bit . thank you very much for this, Bianna, it's very nice
