5 things you should not say or do at the airport

These past few days, netizens have been talking about Filipino actor Tony Labrusca after he allegedly made a scene at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

It can be recalled that Labrusca found himself in hot water after several netizens claimed on January 3 that he was spotted cursing and shouting at a superior immigration officer when he came back to the Philippines from Canada.

While the claims are not yet proven to be true or not, many netizens said that such behavior is not acceptable and passengers must still remain patient and courteous at airports.

Here are some things that you should never do or say at airports.

Never shout or lose temper

It is must to always address airport staff, as well as other passengers, with courtesy. It doesn’t matter if you are tired or extremely jet lagged, you can always still raise your concern and get your point across without being verbally aggressive at someone.

Never cut in line

Cutting in line is rude and disrespectful as it shows that you do not value other people’s time. It doesn’t mater if you are running late or your plane is about to depart, you have to go through every single queue that other passengers went through. The best solution to this is allot some extra time and come to the airport early.

Never leave your thing unattended

Just like any other public place, airports can get crowded especially during holidays when people are expected to go on vacation and go to other places. That is the exact reason why you need to be attentive when it somes to watching your things. Aside from the possibility that they might get stolen, you might confuse your luggage with a similar one that’s not yours or another passenger might pick them up thinking it was theirs.

Never make bomb threats

Bombs are no joke, especially when you are at an airport or an airplane. It’s the very same principle why cracking a bomb joke will land you in hot water, get you booted off the plane or locked up.

According to Philippine law, cracking bomb jokes is a punishable crime as it violates Presidential Decree (P.D.) No. 1727, otherwise known as the Anti-Bomb Joke Law.

Never try to be sneaky

Do not assume that you can get through security by trying to hide items that are not allowed during flights. You are already aware that items like bottled water, bladed objects, sports equipment, etc, are restricted inside planes so do not bother trying to sneak some of those in you hand carry luggage. It is better to be safe than sorry.
