Who gets the armrest? Is reclining your seat strictly verboten? Soaring stress levels and minimum legroom can make navigating the airspace tricky business. Since flying private is not a viable option for most people (alas!), Business Insider has put together a handy infographic with 10 rules that we should all abide by to keep the commercial skies as friendly as possible. From negotiating personal space to planning more convenient bathroom breaks, it's a great resource for both amateur and seasoned flyers who want to minimize stress levels while stuck in a confined space with strangers.

The overarching theme of the list is that we're all in this together and should be considerate of one another. If everyone followed these guidelines, flying would be much more pleasant for everyone. This is by no means an exhaustive list of what you can do to help the time fly by, but it is a great place to start.
