Don’t try and sneak a crafty cigaretteIf you’re a smoker, view long flights as a chance to extend your life. Think of it like this. If you’re a regular smoker and every cigarette brings your date with death ten minutes closer, a long flight is basically a temporary reprieve from an early death sentence. But a longer life isn’t the only advantage of a temporary break from the cancer sticks; give into your cravings for an in-flight nicotine fix (and smoking over the toilet/spraying aftershave/covering the fire alarm really won’t help) and you could well find yourself being arrested on arrival.6. Don’t try new food before a flightAirport food might be improving but it’s still not great. If you’re prone to boredom at airports, it’s worth bearing in mind that however long the wait, this is never, ever the best time to try a new food. Sure, that celebrity chef-owned Mongolian street food restaurant in terminal one might look incredibly tempting, but if you’ve never tried that type of food before, that delicious looking serving of marmot (that’s squirrel, to you and me) could well result in you spending your entire flight staring into a sick bag.7. Don’t book a connecting flight which departs less than an hour of your first one arrivingWe’ve all seem them. Those crazed, panic-eyed travellers running through the airport desperate to catch the connecting flight they should never have booked. Our advice? Don’t bother. Yes, that once-a-week flight to Mae Hong Son in Northern Thailand might well be cheap as chips but if it leaves within on hour of your other flight landing, you’re allowing little time for a late arrival, let alone queues at the airport. In reality, there are usually alternative ways to get to the destination in question, whether it’s a later flight or a flight to a nearby airport.8. Don’t throw away your luggage receiptTravelling involves a lot of paperwork. First of all there’s the big one: the passport. Then there’s boarding passes and visa paperwork. So we understand why it’s easy to lose the luggage receipts airline staff give you after you’ve checked in your luggage. But arriving in your destination to discover your luggage hasn’t done the same can be a soul-destroying moment, and that little slip of paper might just make the difference between departing the airport, suitcase in hand, or moping out of the terminal knowing that you’ll be hand-washing your smalls and relying on free hotel toothpaste for the next 48 hours.So now you know the rules, are you ready to start searching for flights?

With the steely precision of a NASA scientist you’ve cut your capsule wardrobe down to minimum requirements, folded and rolled your lightest essentials, downloaded your boarding card – and… 1. Don’t get legless before your flightThat moment when ‘delayed’ flashes up on the information board can be soul-destroying, but no amount of alcohol will numb the pain of a flight delay. When it finally gets the green light to get airborne it’s highly likely you’ll be prevented from boarding if you’ve spent the past few hours downing your stash of duty-free booze. Even if you do make it onto the flight, you’ll be a serious contender for the title of world’s most unpopular passenger as a result of your regular trips to heed calls of nature, the drunken snoring you’ll emit throughout the flight and the alcohol-related lack of coordination, which will become painfully obvious when you repeatedly switch on your fellow passengers’ light by mistake. And if you’ve ever wondered how to beat jet-lag, you’ll probably know that alcohol will simply make it harder for your body to adjust once you arrive at your destination. 2. Don’t carry anything for anyone elseYou’d be surprised to know just how many people fall foul of this particular rule. We all know not to carry packages for someone else, but the warning doesn’t just relate to cigar-smoking locals who approach you in dark alleys to ask if you’d like to carry something for their long-lost Uncle Pedro. That wooden Buddha which your new backpacker friend asked you to carry in your hand luggage due to their sudden lack of space? Walk away. That tightly wrapped and surprisingly heavy “Balinese tablecloth” that dread-locked guy asked you to deliver to his linen-living uncle? Bin it. If the situation smells dodgy, it probably is. And it’s a smell which is highly likely to be detected by those pesky sniffer dogs waiting to greet you at Heathrow.3. Don’t be rude to cabin crewNobody likes a grumpy stewardess. You’ve shelled out a huge amount of cold, hard cash for your ticket, after all. But if he or she does something to annoy you, store up your anger for a post-arrival tweet or letter of complaint. Your life is in the hands of these people when you’re in air, and while we’re not suggesting a snarky response to an stewardess could result in them sabotaging your life jacket, they’re still the people you’ll turn to if your headphones don’t work or when you discover your television set’s stuck on the children’s channel. They’re also the people who serve up your food and drink, which we’d rather didn’t come with a side order of spit.4. Don’t joke about explosives. Ever.It doesn’t matter if you’re a designer-clad buisnesswoman or a vicar: joke about anything explosive in the mere vicinity of a plane and you face a rather unpleasant interrogation. Ditto humourous emails to friends speculating that the reason for your flight’s delay might be the fact that police have found out about the bomb you’re trying to sneak on, or jokes about how calling in a bomb threat might just help you get out of that dreaded business meeting in New York. Just don’t do it.
