Flying is such a strange experience. It sometimes seems like normal rules don’t apply in the airport or on planes – no one judges you for sleeping on the floor and drinking alcohol at 10 am, and no one bats an eye when paying $10 for a candy bar. However, there are certain etiquette rules that still apply, especially once you’re up in the air. These rules aren’t just to benefit those around you, they will actually make your flight a more enjoyable experience as well. Read on to find out these 8 etiquette rules everyone should know!
1. Arrive Earlier Than You Think You Need To
Sure, this may be the golden rule of traveling, and yet there are always grouchy people running around trying to rush through TSA and asking to cut in line. You’re always better off being safe than sorry when it comes to air travel. Plan for the worst and hope for the best. When you know you have plenty of time to get through airport security you won’t get frustrated and make silly mistakes like forgetting to empty out your pockets.
