12 Things you should never do on an airplane

12 Things you should never do on an airplane

Put this protocol into practice on board and avoid becoming an uncomfortable and unwanted passenger.
Certain flights can even become a nightmare due to the behavior of some passengers who tend to forget that airplanes are collective spaces in which common sense must be exercised. And although in some cases, recklessness or ignorance are responsible, in others, it is manifestly intentional.

1- You don’t sit where you don’t belong. Everyone has their assigned chair (unless it is a low-cost airline). Even knowing their place, there are those who move to another because they prefer the hallway or the window. And what they do is delay the operation and cause discomfort. If you ‘check in’ online or if you arrive early at the airport, you may have the option of choosing a better location.

2-Pay attention. There are those who ignore the crew when it gives the safety recommendations. This information could save your life.
3- Don’t take off your shoes, least of all your socks.As much as you want to rest, think that perhaps you could generate bad odors on the plane.

4- Hand luggage is just that: hand luggage. There are people who, in addition to the suitcase allowed, carry several packages. And they end up leaving other passengers without space.
Reclining the chair too much, even if it is a right, is an inconsiderate attitude towards others.

5- Although you have the right to recline your chair, do so in moderation and with consideration for the passenger behind you. Besides making you uncomfortable, it can hurt you. At meal times, put your back upright. And don’t drive your knees into the back of your head.                                                                                                                                                                                                         
 
6- Do not cut your nails or file or paint them. Avoid any routine of personal cleaning in the cabin.

8- Turn off the phone when asked. Some airplanes do not allow the use of mobiles, not even in airplane mode, and yet there are people who turn them on.

9- If you are traveling with babies, please advise in advance so that they can assign you a suitable space. If you go with older children, take care and watch their behavior: do not allow them to hit the front seat or get up all the time to play. In this, as in other collective spaces, minors must be controlled.

10- You don’t always have to be friends with the passenger next door. There are those who insist on starting a conversation despite the other’s signs of disinterest. If you are accompanied, avoid talking or laughing too hard.

11- The Audio clip you are listening to or the movie you are watching is of interest only to you, so use a low volume. The same happens with electronic games.

12- Upon landing, wait for the aircraft to come to a complete stop before getting up. Open compartments carefully: some objects may fall and hit other passengers. And don’t insist on being the first out; wait for it to be your turn.
