The five worst words you can hear while at the airport are, “Your flight has been delayed.” But they are often followed by five of the best words: “Let’s go to the bar.”

Nonetheless, a new wave of airport bars around the world are making flight delays a little more tolerable. Find one of these bars, sit with your friends and toast to Bill Brasky.
