Excited, nervous, stressed, exhausted: some of the many feelings that travellers experience while in-transit.
Travelling, seeing the world, is absolutely incredible. It is a privilege that people should take advantage of whenever they can. However, aeroplanes and airports are already quite stressful just as they are -- increasingly so with all these modern day issues.
After a harrowing experience with airport security checks, winding customs lines, heavy baggage, and crowds of irritated people, we can only hope to be able to rest in the lounge, waiting area or in the aircraft.
Here are a few things that you must NEVER do when on the aeroplane or at the airport.
This is disruptive, irritating and inconsiderate. Indoor voices please! When you are sitting in the airport lounge, or in a common waiting area, be sure to remain respectful of those around you. Do not answer calls and speak frenetically, staying on to chat for extended periods of time. Remember to never talk accross other people. If you are not seated beside your travel companions, that does not give oyu the right to interrupt everyone else's experience by having a cross cabin chat.
Volume up, earphones out
Put your feet up
Take up too much space
Make a mess
Kick the chair
Be a zoned out parent
We all sympathize, and realize that travelling with young children is a huge task to take on, but… you chose to do so. Please mind your children and ensure that they are calm and quiet. Do not allow your children to run through the isles of the plane or to make a ruckus around the airport.
Be super underdressed
