What you can not do in the airplane and ground transport while traveling
While you are in transport, your main task is to get to your destination safe and sound. Moreover, the responsibility for your well-being and health lies not only with the pilot, guides and driver, but also yourself. We collected 15 “not”, which must be taken into account during the trip.
Ignore stewardess directions
If you are asked to raise the window blind, turn on the airplane mode, raise the back of the chair and remove the headphones, then do not assume that you are a caste of the elect who can skip these requirements. They are made for your safety. Most of all unforeseen situations arise on take-off and landing, which means that at this moment you should be awake and hear the instructions of the flight attendants. And, of course, keep in mind that music creates a burden on the eardrum, and games when climbing or lowering cause dizziness and nausea.
Create conflict situations
In a confined space, and even at an altitude of 10 thousand meters, many people experience anxiety, therefore they react more sharply to any stimuli and behave strangely. In order not to replenish their number and not wake a sleeping dragon in a neighbor, do not drink alcohol before the flight (alcohol acts on the body differently when you fly), do not stamp your foot to the beat of the music (your neighbors are irritated by the vibration of the seats), do not call the stewardess trifles (she is responsible for safety, not serving passengers), do not make comments to the parents of crying children (they are also tired of screaming).
Sit all the time
During the flight, the risk of developing deep vein thrombosis, a disease in which blood clots form in the legs, is increased. This problem is called “economy class syndrome.” You will prevent its development if you put on loose clothing that does not disturb the blood circulation in the body, and also walk at least once an hour around the cabin. By the way, choose comfortable shoes with flat soles that you don’t want to take off. In a critical situation, you should think about how to use the mask, and not about where your shoes are.
There is food that fell on the folding table
There are a lot of dirty places on the plane that they do not have time to clean between flights. A table is one of them. They put phones, bags and even babies on it to change diapers. Therefore, if you carried a piece of biscuit past your mouth, then throw it out without regret. The total concentration of microbial cells on the table reaches 2155 per square inch. Compare this to the 265 units on the toilet flush button to gauge the scale of the disaster. And although the risk of contracting is still small, show disgust.
Veterinary clinic Belanta
Airplanes are known for their low air humidity, so do not be surprised at the dryness in the throat. To deal with it, drink more water. And you can ask for as many glasses as you want. By the way, you have the opportunity to order an additional portion of food (if available, they will give you absolutely free). Refrain from invigorating drinks because they contain caffeine, which leads to dehydration of the body or a jump in pressure, which already rises slightly when climbing.
Forget about the rules of baggage in the cabin
Although airlines strictly regulate carry-on baggage if you have a laptop, a woman’s bag, a small suitcase weighing up to 10 kg, an umbrella cane, a camera and outerwear, no one will forbid you to go into the cabin with them (a full list is listed in the Order Ministry of Transport of Russia dated June 28, 2007 No. 82). But these items will occupy the entire space on the shelf above you, which will infringe on the rights of other passengers, so be polite and hand over some of the things in your luggage. Do not be lazy to find out the rules of a particular company (for example, some carriers charge a separate fee for carrying a backpack to the cabin, even if it is for children). This precaution will protect you from unnecessary waste.
Become a DJ
Do not impose your taste on others. If you do not want to ride in silence, then give the driver a choice, because music affects the mood and driving style, which can lead to unjustified risk on the road. By the way, keep in mind that melodies breaking out from the headphones get on the nerves of other passengers.
Some people put their feet on the armrest or on the control panel. This behavior not only violates etiquette, but can also cause serious injuries during sudden braking or accident – leg bones pierce the chest and even the skull.
Read and write
Even if you are adept at using the phone in public transport, do not think that this skill will save you in the car or bus. Unexpected turns, pits and bumps, changes in speed will lead to the fact that you get sick quite quickly. So turn on your audiobook or enjoy the views from the window. At the same time, try to look ahead or change the position of the head more often so as not to experience unpleasant symptoms.
