    Frequent flier Ron Goltsch says he thinks that courtesy in the air has disappeared.

    "Passengers are cramped, tired and petty," says Goltsch, an electrical engineer in West Caldwell, N.J. "It has gotten to the point now that the people who travel for business just don't enjoy it anymore."
    Increasingly, business travelers and airline attendants complain about the lack of respect passengers have for fellow travelers. Among them: Passengers who talk too loudly on cellphones, bring smelly food on board or recline their seats too much in a cramped cabin.

    In close quarters, it's almost impossible for savvy, frequent business travelers or infrequent leisure passengers to keep their cool and not become annoyed.
