    Air travel has been pretty horrendous at times, and some people seem to be clueless that their actions affect others the minute they step on board an airplane.

    I've always thought that right before the safety demo, airlines should do a courtesy demo. Wouldn't it make air travel better for everyone? This humorous take on what such a video would look like is obviously tongue-in-cheek, but the message is serious. A little courtesy goes a long way.

    So sit back, relax, and enjoy this little video from Icarus Airways!
