5. The service is better when you sit in the final rows
If you sit in the first rows of the plane, you can expect to be the first out the door at the end of the flight as well as get a choice of meal. On the other hand, if you pick a seat closer to the very back of the cabin, you can count on getting more attentive service from the cabin crew. This unexpected bonus is the result of the fact that it’s easier to bring additional food and other things to the final rows of seats and do so in a way that goes unnoticed by other passengers, therefore allowing the crew to avoid additional requests up and down the airplane.
6. Don’t blow up your neck cushion to full volume
When you take a blow-up pillow for your neck onto the plane, don’t forget about the laws of physics. If you fill it completely with air, due to changes in pressure in the cabin, it might burst. So leave it slightly deflated.
7. Make a choice in favor of the special menu option
Many airlines now offer a choice of different in-flight meals. There are now vegetarian, seafood, halal, and kosher menus, and many others besides. Even if you have no particular preference, many people recommend going for one of the specialist meal choices in any case as they are often tastier and more varied than the standard one.
