Annoying Things that People do on Planes

Travelling can be a stressful time, but some people just don’t know how to hold themselves together. When or if you hit the skies this holiday, try not to be that annoying person, or avoid the person that is that annoying person!

* Getting Drunk *

It’s okay to have a glass of wine or a cocktail to calm your nerves. However once you start getting into the drunken zone, it’s only going to end in horrible, annoying behaviour.

* Being a Jerk *

If you see someone struggling with something, like they can’t get their luggage into the overhead bin, and you have the strength to help them – lend them a hand!

* Trying too Hard to Make Conversation *

If you sit next to someone and the conversation comes naturally, so be it. But if you have to force it and you see they are busy reading or trying to watch a movie, them leave them alone.

* Reclining as you Please *

Instead of pushing your seat all the way back without even checking if the person behind you is busy eating or drinking, look around to see first. You wouldn’t want someone aggressively slamming their seat into you.

* Letting your Kids do What They Want *

Travelling with children is difficult, but this is a plane with other people that would like to have a peaceful flight, not your living room. Do your best to control them! Let them watch a movie on your tablet or break out the yummy snacks to distract them.

* Being Rude the Flight Attendants *

Flight attendants have to deal with people’s nonsense the whole day, the best thing you can do for them is to simply be polite. So, listen to what they say and say please and thank you when necessary.

* Eating Stinky Food *


There is a time and a place to eat tuna cakes, eggs and broccoli, but it is not on a plane. Try to stick to food that doesn’t give off a smelly odour, and steer clear of beans, excessive garlic and any other food that’ll cause you to give off a smelly odour.

Don’t be THAT person – show some respect on the plane.

Travelling during the festive season can be difficult, especially with all the Christmas presents and party outfits you’re trying to squash into your suitcase.

Here are a few nifty little tricks to help you stay calm and travel with ease...

Use gift bags instead of paper: Your delicately wrapped presents can easily get ripped open while in your suitcase. Rather use Christmas gift bags to be safe.

Pack necklaces into a straw: This is a tried and tested way to make sure your chains won’t tangle together on the way to your destination.

Put the heavy stuff at the bottom: Your arm will thank you for balancing out the weight and packing your heaviest item at the bottom of your suitcase.

Smart show packing: That means putting your shoes into a shower cap. No more dirty dresses!

Clothing with pockets: Try to wear clothes or a jacket with pockets, this way you won’t have to keep searching for your ID or ticket.
