Flying habits of Malaysians shared in Expedia’s 2017 Airplane Etiquette Study.
It’s already a wellknown fact that Malaysians are inseparable from their smartphones. But did you know that the majority of Malaysians found it harder to survive without their mobile phones than cigarettes during long-haul flights? Well, now you do.
According to the 2017 Airplane Etiquette Study that was conducted byy Expedia,p , 54 percent of respondents said that they dreaded parting with their phones during long-haul flights, as it meant being disconnected from the world. The other 44 percent of respondents, meanwhile, said they found it harder to distance themselves from their cigarettes, which, isn’t exactly any more reassuring. The study also discovered some other interesting traits about Malaysians when they travel byy pplane. For example,p, 78 percent of participants said they wouldn’t recline their seats if the pas-pas- senger sitting behind them was noticeably pregnant or an elderly citizen. The kindness of Malaysians doesn’t stop there, because 54 percent of them said they would be willing to offer their seat to passengers in need, such as those who have been separated from their families.
But no matter how tolerant and compassionate Malaysians are, there are a couple of things that can still get on their nerves. It should really be no surprise that Boozers – disruptive and noisy passengers who indulges in alcoholic beverages – are perched on top of the list, with 76 percent of respondents saying that they couldn’t stand them.
