The best thing you can do is to be polite when boarding and disembarking the plane, to the attendants and to your fellow passengers.
If you accidentally bump into someone, apologize.
Keep out of the aisle when people need to pass by.
Pay attention to lighted signs and the verbal announcements – if you aren’t supposed to do something or be somewhere, don’t do it.
Make sure you know the difference between the flight attendant call button and the overhead light.
If you are having an issue with your flight (IFE unit, food, fellow passengers, whatever), report it calmly and at a time when the agent is not doing something else (like, say, blocking the aisle for meal service.)
And this is one that only comes up recently, but still bears saying – If you want to take video on the plane, like for periscope or even just for posterity, ask the Flight Attendant first. There are some very good reasons that you may or may not be able to film certain very specific things at certain times, and the FAs more than likely will tell you that it’s totally fine and ask to be in it 😉
