- Boarding and off-boarding the airplane is no different than lining up for anything else. Wait your turn.
- If you don’t have priority boarding, respect those who do. Wait for your seat row to be called for boarding and don’t push in front of others.
- The same thing goes when leaving the airplane, Leave the plane in order of seating front to back. Allow those in front of you to exit first. Don’t shove and push your way to the front.
- If you know it will take you longer to off-board due to carry-on luggage, small children or health issues. Wait in your seat to let others who are in a hurry leave the airplane first.
By waiting your turn and considering others, getting on and off the airplane will be more efficient and less frustrating for everyone. For more on travel etiquette see – How to Make Airplane Odors More Bearable
