Dear faithful readers! Here we come back with another set of tips on multiple travel matters. Summer vacations are about to be over, but no worries though. Travel, social, and cultural experiences are awaiting you somewhere.
You can go on vacation year-round; all that you need is time off work and other liabilities, a good adventure travel budget, a bought travel insurance policy and clear destination in mind it to head to.
These are a lot of details to keep in mind and plan for, but you have to anyway to fully enjoy your air travel and vacation. Once you manage to book your flight and get done with your flight reservation, what is left is finding a hotel room on hotel search sites.
Here comes the most awaited moment: the plane boarding. It goes without saying that you need to arrive at the airport 2 or 3 hours prior to the departure time. Once you board your flight, there are few things that you should never say. Here is a quick glimpse on the stuff you should not say aboard a plane.
‘Did you just pack a bomb?’
If you are not a fan of road trips or ships’ journeys, planes are the only left means of transportation that will help you get to your destination. Book your low-cost airline tickets and pack your bag to ‘hit the sky’ this time.
When you board your flight, it is better to mind your business instead of making silly, not so funny, and dangerous jokes like asking your fellow passenger questions like: ‘did you just pack a bomb?’.
Telling such silly jokes is going to push the TSA to pull you off the security line and even arrest you. This should not be, in fact, said in airports, planes and other public and highly secured places.
‘Are you insane? Who tips a flight attendant anyway?’
Finding promo flights is no longer an issue. Both travel booking agents and travel booking websites highlight a set of services to find the flight and hotel deals that meet your needs and expectations.
Once you board your long-awaited flight, make sure you sit in your seat, fasten your belt and quit being a chatty person for once in your life. If you are a talkative person, you will likely say crazy things like the above-mentioned statement.
If you say so, then you are wrong, for flight attendants can get tips. Frontier Airlines, for instance, has permitted giving tips to the flight attendants for the food and beverages sales. You are not obliged to give a tip if you don’t want to, but it is the Frontier’s policy.
‘I don’t want to fasten my seat belt now’
Our stays at luxury vacation rentals and enjoyment of travel experiences all come to an end eventually. But we still can keep the good souvenirs we bought and the memories we created.
Well, at least work on making your flying experience memorable. Let us begin with abiding by the commands of the pilot. If passengers, inclusive of yourself, are asked to buckle up, there is no room for objections that go like: ‘I don’t want to fasten my seat belt now’.
The pilot of a given aircraft is the boss, and his or her orders should be obeyed. If there are any additional commands given by the flight attendants, you ‘d better listen to what they say, for it is for your own safety.

When you book your super cheap plane tickets, there is an indication on them which includes the number of the seat plus other details about the takeoff and landing timing. So you cannot just take any seat you want aboard.
Plus, booking tickets at low prices is not going to ensure you even a good seat in the economy class, let alone an empty seat to pick. If you want empties, you have to join the premium economy class for which you have to pay a lot.
Therefore, you cannot just tell a flight attendant: ‘oh, Ms! I will be taking any empty I find’. This is not even possible not to mention that it is impolite.
‘You know what? I think I am going to hang out with you a bit’
Long before kicking off your travel, you need to buy a travel insurance policy and have a ready emergency medical care plan. They will certainly come of use at some point during your travel. An insurance policy for travel covers any medical conditions you might encounter.
If you do consider this, then all is left is boarding your plane. A plane is not a place to chat with people on their duty. By people, we mean flight attendants.
Besides, the boarded passengers themselves are too tired to bear listening to your bla bla bla about some nonsense they don’t even care about. Save your walkie-talkie character to communicate with private guides when you get to your destination.
‘Do you have an idea about who I am?’
Many passengers face flight cancellations and delayed baggage issues all the time. If they don’ t have a trip cancellation insurance, the situation is even worse. They often lose control over their nerves and yell in the faces of the gate agents.
Our ‘favorite’ kind of passengers is the one that steps forward and addresses the agents in such an impolite manner, saying things like: ‘do you have a clue about who I am?’ Well, this is the worst kind of passengers that one can deal with.
They think that they run the world and that they are superior. We hope that you will avoid behaving in such a way. Just because you are wealthy and got the best active vacation packages does not mean you are better than your fellow travelers.
The bottom line is never addressing any of the aforesaid questions or statements to anyone aboard the plane or at the airport. Additionally, the last statement reminds us of how important trip insurance for flights can be, especially when the flight is canceled.
