Let's Remember our Etiquette When we Fly

Let's discuss some airplane etiquette...for the sake of us all 
--If you have a cold or allergies, please make sure you have a cloth or handkerchief that you can sneeze into. Your hand or turning or head to the side is really not ok when on a plane due to the extremely close proximity to others. Please plan ahead.
--If your child is with you, regardless of how difficult it is, you really must keep their little feet off of the seat in front of them. Truly, it is so uncomfortable to be sitting with constant little kicks in your back for hours on end. Now, with that said, those of us sitting in front of those little feet, please do not ever allow yourself to feel anger towards a child. They are innocent and are never doing anything with the purpose of making you miserable. Have patience and love in your heart, even though it's bothersome.
--When you are talking, be aware of the volume of your voice. Literally, we need to speak in HUSHED TONES on an airplane. People are traveling for all kinds of reasons. Sometimes they have been traveling for more than 20 hours. Sometimes they are going to or coming from a funeral of a loved one. Sometimes they are traveling for treatment for a chronic illness. It is NOT polite to be loud and boisterous with our conversation or laugh when in such close proximity to others. PLEASE, BE AWARE OF YOUR VOLUME. 
--There's no reason to be mad because the person in front of you decides to recline their seat. People, that's just part of it. Reclining your seat can help so much and it's simply a feature on most planes. Deal with it and quit or grumbling.
--When it's time to leave the plane, the protocol is that each isle exits in the order of the isle. If you're in the back, yep, you're going to be waiting a while. It's just part of it. If you want to leave sooner, you've got to pay for the seats up front. it's just that simple.
--For this one, I'm not saying never, but what I will say is please know that bringing food on the plane that is "high odor" is not the most polite thing to do to other guest. Meaning, bringing on a burger smothered in grilled onions so everyone on the plane has to endure your onions while you eat them, is not being sensitive to others. If you have to bring food onto a plane, consider foods that are not high in odor. Turkey sandwiches are great 
--Finally, please be sensitive to little ones around you when considering the media you choose to watch while flying. Yes, I know it's a free country and yes, I know you have the right to watch whatever you want to, but just because we have the right, does not mean that we should. If you know there are young people around you, I would hope that you would not watch anything extremely graphic or that has nudity. We all have a responsibility to protect the innocent always and at all times, regardless of whose they are.
Happy Flying!!
