(Denver, CO) Not only is Denver International Airport under construction, but it’s also the third busiest airport in the world.
Recently, customer satisfaction scores dropped, placing DIA below average in the large airport category.
Suffice it to say, with all the hustle and bustle and construction confusion, annoyances can crop up with fellow travelers.
Before you even make it on the plane, there are hold-ups in already long security lines at DIA as fellow passengers put their belts and jackets back on leading to a multi-bin pile up on the conveyor belt.
The trains between concourses get delayed as frazzled travelers try to hop on at the last minute, re-opening the doors.
And, if you’ve ever tried to make it to your gate on a tight connection, the people who stand still and hog the moving walkways while scrolling their phones, will make you groan.
But what about on the airplane itself? What are the biggest etiquette faux-pas?
In a survey of nearly 1,100 American adults, The Vacationer, a travel site, pinpointed the biggest pet peeves on airplanes.
