All Southern folks highly value the practice of good manners. In fact, we’re taught to say “yes mam” and “no mam” practically from birth. And, one of the most difficult forms of etiquette to master is travel etiquette. We relied on the help of Gayden Metcalfe and Charlotte Hays, authors of Being Dead Is No Excuse and Somebody Is Going To Die If Lilly Beth Doesn't Catch That Bouquet, for their knowledgeable advice on all thing travel etiquette related.

Is it rude to ask someone to move his or her seat on a plane? What should you do if you sit next to a chatty Kathy? How big is too big for a carry on bag? What is the appropriate airport attire? All of these questions are answered and more.

There is one travel etiquette tip Gayden and Charlotte swear by: keep your cool! At the end of the day, everything will work out.
