We all have annoying habits, and travel tends to bring out the worst in people.
If you have any sympathy for your flight attendants, who, day in and day out, are privy to some of the most extreme human behavior, you’d make an effort to do better.
The first step is knowing just what you’re doing wrong.
Luckily for you, we asked flight attendants everywhere to share the annoying things they wish passengers would stop doing, and more than 60 were happy to chime in.
Here are 25 things you may not have even known you were doing wrong, and one thing you can probably stop worrying about:
Hogging the overhead bins
“Put the suitcases in the overhead and put your small bags underneath the seat in front so we don’t have to run out of space and have to check bags.”
Not saying hello
“I wish passengers would acknowledge the crew when they board.”
“Stop trying to hand us trash on the beverage cart or asking us to take your trash while we’re handing out food.”
