Letter: Have some respect, fellow air travelers
First Published Jun 16 2014 04:47 pm • Last Updated Jun 16 2014 05:13 pm

While returning on a flight from Orlando yesterday, what I saw pretty much cemented my belief that people don’t pay attention and don’t clean up after themselves.

Before the flight even got off the ground, the pilot and a flight attendant both made announcements that the forward lavatory was out of commission but there were three available at the back of the plane. Even after this being announced, people still tried to use the lavatory at the front. The couple behind me, husband and wife, had no clue that this announcement had been made, twice. I had to tell them that there were two announcements on the subject. Ever get behind someone while walking somewhere and they just stop and stare with no idea they are holding everybody else up? This happened way too much while boarding. Again, not paying attention.

Then there’s all the garbage up and down the aisle way. Come on, people. Have some respect and clean up after yourselves and your children. You wouldn’t want to clean up after someone else yourself.
