The worst things you can do on an airplane

The Active Times Logo By Holly Van Hare of The Active Times | Slide 1 of 21: You might think that sitting on an airplane is the easiest part of air travel. You’ve already suffered through security — which, no matter how many tricks you use to speed things up, always takes longer than you expect. You scoured the terminal for acceptable food options and, unless you were lucky enough to stumble upon an airport restaurant that was actually good, you settled for a sad, overpriced snack.After battling the crowds and dealing with delays, you’re probably relieved once you finally plop down in your seat. Sometimes, though, your seatmates can make the experience pretty unpleasant: While you’re in the air, you have to deal with the smells, noises and obnoxious habits of the people around you. Don’t be that passenger that makes others’ flights unbearable — whatever you do, avoid doing these annoying things on an airplane.
