A great discussion has been going on at our round-table in SFO: specifically, treating courteously and well everyone you encounter and make your travels possible. Gate agents, front desk clerks, flight attendants, pilots, hotel managers, lounge staff, and the list goes on and on. There are always those people who are grumpy, demanding, and all together unpleasant travelers. If you can't stand them as a fellow passenger, think of how you would feel if you had to deal with an incessant stream of these gremlins 8 hours or more a day, most of the weeks of the year. In the spirit of good community building, and setting a positive tone, please post your stories, tips, and tricks for being that traveler (elite or not) who always brings a smile and feeling of appreciation to the people who make your travels happen.
