I'm an etiquette expert – this annoying mistake everyone makes when boarding planes enrages passengers AND cabin crew | The Sun

Queueing in a boarding lounge can be a stressful situation, but it can be made worse by people who don't pay attention to whose turn it is get on the aircraft.

Airlines divide the plane up into boarding groups, so that a steady stream of passengers can quickly and easily board, but often keen passengers will just queue without waiting for their turn.

Speaking to Insider, the unnamed cabin crew member said: "If I could give an airline-etiquette PSA, I'd say I wish more passengers knew middle seat armrests are for the middle seat passenger — both of them."

The flight attendant also advised passengers to never do exercise on a plane.

She added: "If you do yoga in the back galley, your butt is in my face."

The last piece of advice the attendant gave was making sure passengers know what is really on the floor in the plane toilet.
