In fact, many of them are as easy as using the overhead lockers in the correct way.

However, doing one small action could result in the crew feeling rather frustrated.

Posting to a Reddit forum, the flight attendant wrote: “Be a good passenger: stow your carry on in the overhead bin properly.

“I always test close the bin to make sure it'll close.

“Close bins that are full, a lot of the shorter flight attendants complain about not being able to close centre bins on wide-body aircraft, especially when they're full of 80+lbs of luggage.

“And if you come across a closed bin, don't open it - they're closed for a reason; and if they're empty, it's probably because the flight attendants want to stow their luggage in it.”

The crew member then warned: “Putting your stuff in there is only going to make them dislike you.”
