A beginner's guide to airplane etiquette

  2. 2. Don't Ask to Cut This is a big no-no, especially when it comes to the security line, where dozens of other people are in just as big of a hurry. Bear in mind that, when you ask one person to let you jump ahead of him, you’re assuming all of the people in line behind him will also be okay with it. If it’s really an emergency, speak with a flight attendant.
  3. 3. Share Overhead Storage Space The overhead bins are intended for multiple passengers to share. If you take up too much room, others may not be able to fit their bags in the compartment. This is especially annoying if your particular airline charges for each carry-on. If you need extra room, speak to an attendant.
  4. 4. Know when to turn off devices Your electronics must be turned off during takeoff and landings. It’s airline policy and, as such, flight attendants are just doing their jobs by enforcing it. Arguing with them accomplishes nothing and may delay the flight. Additionally, if they view you as a problem, you may get put off the plane.
