Airline travel can certainly test your will and patience. You may have had seatmates that were bossy, sickly, rude or overly talkative. If you don’t like those behaviors, why should your seatmate? While you cannot control everyone else’s habits, you can control yours.
Travel + Leisure has a guide for flying etiquette with tips for flying. Here are a few guidelines for being a good in-flight seatmate:
• Share the armrest
• Stick to small talk, no life stories
• Don’t be in a hurry; everyone takes off and arrives at the same time
• Treat others how you would like to be treated
