Airports are among the busiest places in the world. Millions of people from all over the globe travel in planes all year round. This makes airports a virtual melting pot for all kinds of people of all ages from many different countries traveling to a variety of destinations.

Darth probably drove whoever he was sitting next to on the plane crazy with his loud breathing.
