How to Navigate Four Sticky Situations When You Travel
Before you try to switch seats on a plane, or use your phone on the train, learn these points of travel etiquette.
Can I ask a passenger to switch places with me so I can sit next to my son on our flight?
How can I politely (and safely) redirect my taxi driver if my navigation app suggests he’s taking an indirect route?
Instead of accusing the driver of taking you for a ride, assume it could be an honest mistake (or your app’s mistake)—or that he knows a better route. First ask if you’re on the quickest or most direct route, which leaves you an opening to point out the alternate route your GPS shows.
