Since I’ve flown four times in the last week, I feel highly qualified to comment on the do’s (or more specifically, the don’ts) of airline travel.
No, I’m not an accredited globetrotter, but I’ve spent enough time in close quarters with people whose true character shines through in these situations that I think I can compile a solid list of tips to make everyone’s travel a little less hemorrhoidal and a little more enjoyable.
Armrests are joint-custody real estate. There’s only one between you, which means only one of you is getting it at any one time. I strongly recommend discussing visitation rights with your neighbor before you have to do the elbow creep move. Especially if you’re sitting next to Rita McNeil. Just talk about it, people. Can’t we just get along?
OK, so you made it. The plane landed. It didn’t burst into flames. Don’t stand up the second the plane comes to a stop. Where do you think you’re going?
