Thank you thank you thank you for sharing this. Having fly quite a lot, I sometimes feel rude when I don’t smile or reciprocate when the people sitting next to me were looking at me. My smiles sometimes lead to unwanted conversations (I just wanted to sleep or do something else because I was exhausted). Thank you for sharing these insight! It really helps a lot!
