Be A Better Passenger: Know The Flying Etiquettes (Part 1)

You are on your cheap flights to Montreal seated on a middle seat and the lady on the window seat is snoring uncontrollably while her kid on the aisle seat is wearing his headphones with his head steadily nodding into your space. You try to take a short nap and stretch your seat back to realize that the passenger behind you is working on a gadget that stops your seat from reclining.

Isn’t that a very common scene during flights? What would you do?

Flying can really put you in stress. And the shrinking flight seats just add up to the whole strain. Crowded flights especially can be quite annoying but that certainly should not bring out the worst face of you.

While flying into cheap flights to Victoria or other destinations, it is absolutely necessary to ensure that the journey is pleasant for you as well as for your fellow passengers. And to ensure that, here are some of the very important flying etiquettes you must learn and follow. These will help you become a better passenger and your flying would always be enjoyable:

1. The Luggage Snag

As you board your flight, keep your luggage in the nearest compartment to your seat. Be aware of other people in the aisle and try not to block their influx whilst you stow your luggage. Avoid carrying overweighed bags.

You may want to pack everything in your carry-on bags to dodge away the baggage fee but do remember that you will have to hoist these heavy bags up to the overhead luggage compartments. Most of the airlines restrict flight attendants to handle their passenger’s luggage for avoiding liability and injuries; so, make sure you can easily handle your luggage by your own.

2. The Arm Rest Rustle

The middle seat of any flight is undoubtedly the worst seat of all. The passengers of the window seat can easily rest their head and arm on the window while the passenger in the aisle seat always has an extra room to lean. But the mid seat passenger is stuck in the limited, restricted space. Next time, be considerate enough to cede the inner arm rest for the person sitting in the middle. And if you are on the middle seat, politely ask your fellow passengers to let you use some space.

3. The Hygiene Regime   

Each flight has close quarters. Avoid wearing flip flops while flying and never take off your shoes. Make sure that you always wear a pleasant deodorant that is not over boarded. Wear comfortable but full clothing (prefer pants over shorts).

4. The Headphone Hangs

If you want to listen to music, watch a movie or play games, keep in mind that headphones with full volume become mini speakers that could trouble passengers sitting next to you and even sitting on the next row. It is an easy to forget rule; so, do not ignore this.

Other than these, there are some more flying etiquette as well to know about that we would cover in the next part of the article. So whether you are boarding cheap flights to Calgary or anywhere else, be a better passenger with our tips. For easy flight bookings, visit
