(CNN) – It doesn’t matter how old you are, where you’re from or what you do. The biggest annoyance when flying is when someone kicks your seat. That’s according to an international survey on the global travel experience.

American airports had a busy summer. An estimated 231 million people were expected to fly on u-s based airlines from June 1st to august 31st. That’s an all-time high, according to an airline trade organization.

When looking at the same period last year, it’s an increase of more than 95 thousand people per day. With more people comes more travel headaches.

According to research from the CMO council and AIG travel, by far travelers said flight delays and cancellations frustrate them the most.

When on a plane, the biggest pet peeve is when someone constantly kicks your seat. Followed by people who recline their seats too far, loud passengers, crying babies and people who take too much room in the overhead bin space.

To help make your flying experience a little less stressful, don’t rush. Budget more time than you think you need.

Also, apply for TSA precheck which allows most passengers to keep their shoes, jackets and belts on when going through security.

According to the TSA, in july, 97 percent of precheck passengers waited less than five minutes in the security line.

Also, research travel insurance. It could save you some stress, especially if you have to deal with lost luggage or a trip cancellation.
