Here are a couple of tips to help make parent, baby and everyone else sharing the aircraft with you more comfortable and lessen the chance of outbursts.
The space in overhead compartments causes more commotion than Oprah trying to get through a crowded 757 aisle to some twice-baked potatoes.
The lavatory seems to be an area of the aircraft where a person’s true breeding is revealed. Proper Jetiquette calls for every person to leave the lavatory at least slightly better if not drastically better than they found it.

“Ladies and Gentlemen, please direct your attention to the flight attendants as they demonstrate proper travel manners or as we like to call it, Jetiquette, on today’s flight.” Dear Sky Steward, Thank you so much for your work to improve the civility displayed by passengers and crew to one another on airline flights throughout the world.
