  • It is hard (but probably not impossible) to start a “Leavin’ on a Jet Plane” sing-along. However, mentioning the ironic nature of John Denver penning the song doesn’t go over so well.
  • If you think your plane may be taxiing excessively before departure, it’s acceptable to verbally confirm with a fellow passenger that you didn’t accidentally wander onto a bus. But not too loudly.
  • It is fun but inappropriate to throw your arms up rollercoaster-style upon takeoff. In case you are seized by the urge, make sure you have enough head-room so that your wrists don’t conk against the overhead luggage bins.
  • And screaming is out. Trust me.
  • If you don’t want to talk to your fellow passenger, pick up a wonky-wonk magazine like Foreign Affairs or The New Yorker. They will pigeonhole you as a hopeless nerd and you can continue on your way.
