Airplane etiquette: 10 Rules of Flying
Place Your Bag Over Your Seat
Have you ever boarded a plane to find the overhead bin above your empty seat row is already full? It turns out that some travelers keep an eye on their bag by storing it one row ahead of where they're sitting. These passengers are afraid that someone will steal their bag, so they place it in an area where they believe they'll be able to notice if it's taken. We've never heard of someone stealing someone else's carry-on bag, and think it would be incredibly noticeable and quickly resolved if someone was to try it.
