7 ways not to irritate your fellow passengers when flying
I was recently on a flight from Johannesburg to Cape Town and witnessed the cabin attendant assisting 2 foreign travellers cram their huge heavy hand luggage into the overhead stowage. As soon as the safety announcements were done and just before take off they leapt up and removed their bags, obviously believing nobody would notice! I certainly did and was concerned that if we did have a crisis on the flight these bags including a metal briefcase would become deadly missiles. Fortunately the eagle eyed cabin attendants soon appeared and placed the bags back where they belonged and instructed the passengers to leave them there until landing in Cape Town. Why are people so very stupid?
