Airplane Etiquette

Traveling can be stressful at times. Here are 8 tips to help you and your fellow travelers be a little more comfortable during your flight:

Feet! – Don’t put your feet on the bulk head, arm rest, tray table, etc. Pretty much don’t put your feet anywhere but on the floor where they should be.

Don’t take your shoes off if your feet stink – There are people seated very close to you on the plane. Please just keep your shoes on if you know you have a foot odor. If not it will not be a pleasant flight.

No smelly foods – Just a reminder, you are in an enclosed metal tube. The smells you bring on the plane will stay on the plane. If you would not want to sit in a room that smelled like tuna fish, don’t subject those around you to that.

Use headphones when listening to music or watching a movie – The people sitting around you don’t want to hear your taste in music or hear the audio from your movie. Please be courteous to everyone around you and use headphones.

Take your headphones out when speaking with a flight attendant – Please be polite and take your headphones out when the flight attendants are doing their service. It helps you to hear us better and you don’t scream at us because you can’t tell how loud you are.

Say please and thank you – Saying please and thank you goes a long way. I do hope who ever raised you taught you these simple manners.

Listen to the flight attendant’s instructions – When the flight attendant asks you to do something, it is for a reason. It’s not just for fun but for your safety as well as the safety of your fellow passengers.

Wear deodorant and brush your teeth – This goes for being in public. If you are smelly, being on a confined metal tube with strangers is not very polite.
