  • 2.   2     13.  Generally,  it  is  not  appropriate  to  climb  over  people  to  get  to  the  aisle.  When  I  am   sitting  in  the  aisle  seat  and  decide  to  sleep,  I  make  sure  to  let  the  people  in  the  middle   and  window  seats  know  that  it  is  okay  to  wake  me  up  or  climb  over  me  (if  that  is  my   preference)  if  they  need  to  get  out.  Yes/No   14.

When  babies  fly,  they  may  cry.  Typically,  it  is  because  the  pressure  in  their  ears  becomes   uncomfortable.  Adults  know  how  to  equalize  the  pressure…swallowing,  holding  the   nose  closed  and  pushing  air  out;  but  babies  do  not  know  that.  I  am  an  understanding   passenger  and  refrain  from  glaring  or  making  sarcastic  comments  or  facial  expressions?   Yes/No   17.
