A great deal of in-flight comfort is related to who is traveling on the same plane: if there is a lot of noise, strong smells, or someone taking up the other person’s space.
But to ensure a peaceful trip without major hassles, there are some etiquette rules that can be followed. Check out tips from Vice President of the National Aeronautics Federation (SNA), Cláuver Castilho, and creator of the Aerolindas blog, which depicts the daily lives of flight attendants, Letícia Ramos.
