How to be the perfect plane passenger

4 0 2

OPINION: In the century since the first commercial flight, flights have become less like glamorous high society parties in the sky, and now resemble shabby student flats on a hung-over Sunday.

We've lost the dinner jackets and clinks of martini glasses; they've been replaced by stray grubby sports socks and dog-eared copies of Heat magazine.

And when we lose glamour, we lose good manners and decorum, too. Glamour, in essence, is a visual cue to behave a little bit better, to bring the best versions of ourselves into the arena.

Alas, there is little glamour to be found in economy class these days, and that's where firm, fixed rules of etiquette come into play. Jet-iquette, if you like.
