Don't walk barefoot into a plane bathroom, that liquid is probably not water.
Airplane bathrooms aren't cleaned after every flight. Use wet wipes to clean the toilet seat before using it.
Flight crew won't help with your luggage because they only get paid, and are only insured for workmans comp, once the plane doors close.
Don't drink the hot water on planes. The tanks are only cleaned every 6 - 9 month or if there is a problem.

Ask for breakfast on the go. Some hotels will put your breakfast in a takeaway container if you're in a rush.
Ask for an airport transfer. Many hotels offer a free or discounted ride to the airport.
