Here’s an unconventional cure for the layover blues.


Spending a late night at the airport can be pretty lousy for any traveler. Whether you missed a flight, are waiting on a delayed aircraft, or have an unfortunately long layover, no one wants to have a boring, uncomfortable evening trapped in an airport terminal.

But when Mahshid Mazooji found herself stuck in Charlotte Douglas International Airport on Saturday after missing a connecting flight, she chose to make the most of it. She decided, specifically, to "dance her troubles away."

“I didn’t want to sit in anger all night long, so instead, I did what makes me happiest...” Mazooji said in her YouTube post.

Recruiting late night employees and fellow travelers she met around the airport, Mazooji spent her late night layover exploring the nearly abandoned airport and dancing. She stitched together clips in a self-made video set to Lionel Richie’s “All Night Long.”

If you’re ever stuck on crummy evening layover, this might not be a bad way to spend your down time. After all, her video has been viewed well over a million times. And an airport has never seemed so groovy.
