Nowadays, more and more people are able to fly. With the advent of low cost carriers, air fare have been getting lower throughout the years, hence, allowing more and more people to ride airplanes. Apparently, some think that riding an airplane is just like riding a bus, which is why they take safety and proper etiquette lightly without realizing that safety is paramount for every airline.
The truth is flying in an airplane is similar to travelling to outer space in a space ship. You are inside a life support system. You are simply breathing jet engine air at 40,000ft while flying at a speed of about 800kp/h! It may seem slow from inside an aircraft but yes, your speed up there is 800kph, 8 times faster than the allowable maximum speed when driving in highways. Should their be any incident on board, the pilot cannot just land or stop the aircraft right then and there.
Airlines expect their passengers to behave properly for the sake of safety and security of all other passengers and the crew. Airlines also expect passengers to obey the the flight crew, airport personnel, ground crew, particularly the cabin crew who carry out safety procedures to ensure your safety. If you are wondering what happens when you do not obey your cabin crew, go check the Conditions of Carriage you had agreed to when you purchased your airline ticket.
So here are some reminders for our dear passengers when flying to ensure a safe and comfortable flight:
