What is your guilty pleasure when Flying/Traveling?

For some reason, every time I fly, I HAVE to get an Auntie Ann's pretzel. It's just one of those things you smell from half a terminal away and is (most of the time) worth every bite.

So I ask, if you have a guilty pleasure when flying/traveling, what is it?

I am not much of a desert eater but when I travel it's hot chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream.

Trashy magazines. Never read them otherwise but I love me a good, trashy read while waiting at the gate/taxiing etc. People, US, something like that. A flight just isn't the same with out them.

Too many free drinks when flying F.

That is, back in the days when I got upgraded.

I think everyone has that *something* that it just isn't a flight without it.

YES! Another one here - and it's got to be paper too - an electronic copy just won't do.

Gotta have one of those pretzels every time I leave LAS.

Cool

A large Starbucks coffee and a slice of lemon pound cake. The stuff is just too sweet to justify eating very often, but I almost always get it at the airport.

Anytime on in the northeast, it's a lobster roll wherever I can find it and I'll usually go 30-40 mins out of the way to get one. Midwest or South it is BBQ but pulled pork, baby back ribs, or brisket only.

Bourbon or Scotch in the hotel or airport bar, I never drink it at home really.
