Airplane Etiquette

Oh this is a doozy!
Once again... I could break out my Nerf gun!!
Airplane Etiquette

  1. Carry your bag in front of you and low to the ground.

  2. Utilize the overhead space above your own seat row.

  3. Keep your chair upright at least until you're told it can be reclined.

  4. Avoid grabbing the back of the seat in front of you.

  5. Respect personal space.

  6. Avoid hogging the aisle.

  7. Be considerate of other passengers when you deplane.


Extra tips to keep in mind.

Wear deodorant, but do not wear a strong perfume or cologne.
Always bring a tissue or handkerchief with you in case you sneeze or cough.

Keep your conversations to a low whisper if you're traveling with someone.

Do not put your feet up on the bulkhead if you are sitting by it. If you must raise your feet, put your bag on the floor and put your feet on that.

When movies start, ask the passenger next to you if they'd prefer to have the window shade down.

At the baggage claim, stand back from the carousel until you see your bag approaching, then step forward to retrieve it.

If you're traveling with a pet, ask the passenger next to you right off the bat if they're allergic, before you sit down.

If you have any skin conditions, such as dandruff, be considerate and do not scratch continuously onto the person next to you.

Listen to the instructions of the flight attendants. The rules regarding no head phones during take off and landing, no cell phones, luggage stored in bins or under the seats, tables stored seat upright are not only for the other passengers, they are for you as well. Abiding by all rules allows things to go faster and much happier flight attendants.

Make sure you are aware of the new security rules (amount of allowable liquids in a small plastic zip lock bag etc). Security checks are delayed every time somebody tries to get through with items which are not allowed.

Thanks so much!! I wish these were posted!! However, "those" people probably wouldn't read them because "they" never think rules apply to them! ;-) xoxo

The very last tip is the one that annoys me the most!!! I hate it when people try to argue with TSA about taking stuff through security - just toss it and move on :)
