When traveling by plane, whether it is a few hours or a long flight, it is good to keep in mind some basic rules, mostly advice, so that you can face the flight in maximum harmony with the other passengers. Let’s call it etiquette in flight, let’s call it good manners, the issue does not change everyone (including us) want to face the trip in the best way without having to face annoyances that can be easily avoided with a bit of attention by our “travel companions” however unknown they may be.
But what are the behaviors to avoid in flight? How can we help to make the journey pleasant for us and other passengers?
Follow our advice!
What Not To Do On The Plane
Push To Get To The Place
Don’t worry, unless you’ve chosen a seatless ticket, there’s no hurry, your seat is waiting for you! Pushing other passengers during boarding is the worst way to start your journey, isn’t it?
Same thing in case we don’t have an assigned seat… unless you’re going to run over the other passengers, pushing them in a hurry while you’re getting 1099 MISC form on the plane will only make the other passengers nervous.
Occupying Other People’s Compartments With Your Own Stuff
How many times have you opened the compartment for your seat and found it occupied? That doesn’t feel good! So try to occupy only the space related to your seat and not “invade” the space of others! Taking advantage of the space under the front seat is also not the best, especially if we can bother the passenger in front or next to us.
Getting Up All The Time To Pick Up Objects In The Cabin
Before the plane takes off, make sure you take everything you need from your hand luggage. This way you will avoid having to get up frequently, and annoy your neighbor.
Choose The Right Times To Go To The Bathroom
If you travel in the indoor seat, and you see that your neighbor is getting ready to take a nap, take the opportunity to go to the bathroom. You’ll avoid waking him up soon afterwards. At the same time, try to avoid the moments when the stewardesses pass by with the trolley, or when there is already a nice queue for the toilet.
Reclining The Seat Too Much
It is true that the seat is made specifically to be reclined, but it is also true that it is good manners to think of those sitting behind us who want everything except to travel for now in an even more restricted space.
Use Devices Without Earphones
If you are going to listen to music, watch movies or videos, bring a pair of earphones with you. Of course, you don’t need to use the speakerphone and involve the whole plane.
Get Up And Call As Soon As The Plane Touches The Ground
Scenes we see every day. When the plane touches the ground (and maybe it’s still moving), many people immediately start calling despite the stewardesses’ recommendations.
Avoid doing so and wait to set foot in the airport so as to avoid creating chaos.
Also wait for the plane to stop to get up and pick up your hand luggage and above all don’t rush, wait your turn.
