17 Immutable Rules of Flight Etiquette, According to Lifehacker Readers
Last week I asked you about your unwritten flight rules. This was not a request for hot results, but an attempt to limit air travel regulations that should be common sense, but for some reason are not a given.

(Next stop: make airlines less evil.)
