Flight Manners (On Land)


Some time ago, it was a standard for men to wear a blazer and tie when they traveled. With the decline in dress-code, came a decline in decorum. Here’s my attempt to restore decorum and give the jet-set ladies something to smile about.

Here are my top 10 tips to get you to your gate, in style of course.

1: Dress as if you’re meeting an attractive woman (which you may) for the first time. In other words, “impressively.”

2: In most cases, it’s recommended that you arrive 2hrs prior to flight. Adhere.

3: Refer back to post “Cellular Intrusiveness.”

4: Lines can & will move slow. Bring a GQ magazine or a book to refocus your attention.

5: Be aware of your personal space. Standing closer doesn’t shorten the wait time.

6: If your bag isn’t a carry-on, check it at ticketing.

7: Keep your boarding pass and I.D. accessible. You will show it, repeatedly.

8: Minimize your jewelry. It takes to much time to remove when going through security.

9: Avoid confrontation. Take a step back, re-access the situation, re-engage.

10: If a woman or the elderly needs assistance, step up!

With all the securities measures, air-travel can be exhausting, however, if you approach the situation prepared, open-minded and pleasant, you can cruise to your gate unravelled.
