If you’re that person constantly getting up mid-flight to access the overhead bin, you need to stop. Not only are you bothering the passengers next to you (yes, even if you’ve got the aisle seat) but you’re making your fellow bin buddies nervous with all that poking around.
Do This Instead: Skylar Renslow of The Daily Grog advises: “Bring a small, packable tote or daypack and, before boarding, take out all of your in-flight necessities, e.g., headphones, laptop/iPad, books/Kindle, chargers, water, etc. ... When boarding time comes, you won’t have to take up the whole aisle taking all your crap out. Just throw your luggage on top and slide your tote/backpack underneath the seat in front of you.”
