I scored 2: I'm sometimes a bit late putting my Palm Treo away, and I often unclick my seatbelt just before the plane reaches the gate. :oops:

Which means...
O to 2 - If your answers are true, you are a flying angel, not a flying cough. I hope to see you on my next flight.

I scored 2. Hogging armrests and looking out the window during movies were my 'failings'.
I only 'hog the armrests if I'm in the middle seat though. I reckon it's a small consolation for having a [email protected] seat.
Interesting though, there was no mention of reclining :rolleyes:

2 for me.

hogging armrests and sometimes taking shoes off.

and who hasn't played elbow hockey with the person next to them from time to time ?

- ends up being a game of who moves first and gives up their spot at the back of the arm rest....

2 for me too... i subscribe to the theory that if you are stuck in the middle seat you've earned the right for both armrests, but if you give them up for any length of time it's game on!

Speaking of arm rests, the "best" experience I've had was waking up in J class to find my seat mate had rinsed his socks out and was using the entire centre console to lie them flat to dry...

I got 1 for leaving rubish in the front seat pocket, well, where else should I leave them?

Most of the time I am flying with my children, and when they are given all sort entertainments etc, the bags are handy for putting all the rubbish they have through out the flight, as well as their drinking bottles, we keep them till the flight ended.:oops:

It would be interesting to run the test on ones fellow passengers. We all seem to be close to perfect, but some other people are out to get me. Perhaps we could hand out report cards at the end of each flight.

4 / 24. I fail to see what's wrong with leaving rubbish in the front pocket if it isn't collected by staff, or what's wrong with pressing the attendant button even if they're busy. I know they'll get to me when they're free, and I'm always polite.

2 for me.
I usually take my shoes off. I only wear shoes when it's socially unacceptable not to, so my feet aren't too stinky anyway.

I also leave rubbish in the seat pocket - where else can we put it?

4/24, I am generally civilized. :eek:

I am guilty of taking off my flip flops, unbuckling my seat belt a bit early so I can leap out of my seat and outrun the wheelie baggers to passport control, I will sneak on more carry on weight wise if it means I don't have to check a bag and I will sneak extra cokes out for layovers in transit airports. I be baaaaad!

2 for me, and it is similar to others. I sometimes take my shoes off for lonhaul flights but that's why you get the socks innit? Also the armrest war is one I am guilty of but I would argue that a compromise can be made with a one arm forward/one arm back tacit agreement.

Some are silly questions like the soda and peanuts one. Also, I thought Americans didn't have an r in asshole.

I only got 1 and maybe 2 if i sat in window seats i'd probably want to look out, but i can't rmemeber the last time i had a window or middle seat. Aisles only for me (this often means checking in seperate from work colleagues etc)

My pet hate on all of them is the armrest hogs. Reason being is i can handle lack of legroom, but when i can't rest my shoulders back because the @rse next to me is being inconsiderate, sitting with legs wide apart and elbows sticking into my sides i really hate it. I often find i crunch my shoulders in to avoid the service cart then end up with a sore neck and shoulders.
