Every traveller who has ever boarded a plane knows that there are several annoying habits that can really drive other passengers crazy.
Whether it's the passenger in front of you with their seat all the way back for the entire trip, or the one sitting next to you blasting their music as if no one else can hear it, there's always someone that aggravates surrounding passengers.
Don’t be that traveller! Instead, be self-aware and follow these travel tips to be a more considerate plane passenger.
When the attendant makes the announcement that it's time to board the plane, there's no need to jump up and run to the door. As long as you're in your departure gate's general area and you have your ticket, you won't be left behind.
Many travellers like to gather around the gate before the boarding process has even begun, but it's important you don't block the gate when you're in one of the last sections to be called.
Although you may be eager to get to your destination, try to relax and wait until the proper time to get in line. This will make the process much easier, not only for you, but for the flight attendants and all of your fellow flyers.
When it comes to particularly crowded planes, try to keep in mind that overhead storage is usually overflowing by the time the last passengers have boarded. If you have a small suitcase and a backpack, leave the backpack on hand and store it under your seat to open up that space for someone who hasn't stored their luggage yet.
