Without earphones. On a tablet. With children around! #why

#2 Stow away extra alcohol

They're cute, but not worth your pride.

Technically the flight crew are allowed to give them out at will, but when your bags are clinking and your pants suspiciously bulging and you’re still asking for more… don’t blame them for refusing you.

#3 Do yoga in the aisles

Don’t expect a ’Namaste’ in return when you’re done with your 40 min workout in the aisle.

#4 Doing a full-on mani/pedi

We don’t particularly mind if you do a gel mani next to us since it’s pretty scentless, but we don’t want to smell alcohol throughout the whole trip and we certainly don’t want to see you do your toenails.

#5 Changing diaper in the aisle

Okay, this doesn’t technically count since he never made it onto the flight, but it deserves a mention – one passenger decided to try to make it pass the checkpoint with 1 litre of vodka and refused to surrender it. Instead, he chugged the entire bottle there and then and wanted to be let in. He was soon taken to a nearby hospital for alcohol poisoning. #darwinawards
