9 questions you should ask flight attendants next time you fly

Business Insider Logo By Tami Brehse of Business Insider | Slide 2 of 10: 
  With overhead bins in high
  demand, it's not uncommon for airlines to run out of main cabin
  storage space. If this happens, ask a flight attendant to help
  you stow special items like your suit jacket or photography
  gear.

  "On most airlines the closets are
  in the forward cabin, so it helps to ask right when you're
  boarding if you want to use them," Taylor Strickland, a flight
  attendant with Alerion Aviation, told Business Insider. "If it's not the
  middle of winter when every passenger has a heavy coat, they
  should be able to help you out."

  Strickland said closet space is
  typically reserved for first-class passengers, so asking politely
  goes a long way.
