A Business Traveler's Guide to Maintaining Professionalism in the Air

Last updated 5 years ago

Although air travel is one of the most convenient methods of getting from one place to another, even the most experienced travelers would agree that it can be exhausting at times. If you’ve recently scored a great business class deal on a flight, there are a few basic steps you can take to make the upcoming flight more enjoyable for yourself as well as those around you. Here is a business traveler’s guide to maintaining professionalism in the air:

Don’t Be Greedy with the Arm Rest Even though your business class deal guarantees you a spacious seat, you may still find yourself bumping elbows with the person next to you at some point or another during the flight. Out of courtesy, take just one arm rest and allow the person sitting next to you to use his or hers in order to avoid any awkwardness or conflict.

Assist Others with Heavy Luggage If you see a fellow passenger struggling to get his or her large bag into the overhead bin, offer a helping hand. If the passenger insists that he or she can handle it without any help, keep an eye on those seated around the overhead bin to make sure that the bag won’t fall down on their heads as it’s being lifted.

Wait Until Food or Beverage Service Is Over to Use the Restroom There are few things more difficult for flight attendants than trying to navigate the aisles while passengers are walking around. Be patient as they pass by you with their carts or plan to use the restroom before the in-flight food or beverage services begin. This will allow them to better serve you and your fellow business class passengers.
