The 7 Worst People You Meet On Planes
The Atat Boarder
For the most part, flights have reserved seats now. It’s mind-boggling why people still attempt to board when it’s not their turn yet. Plus, the crew checks each ticket, and asks you to step aside when your row hasn’t been called yet so why not avoid the embarrassment and just wait?!
The Leg Shaker
There are many reasons why people shake their legs—maybe they’re anxious, maybe they’re scared, or maybe it’s a habit they haven’t outgrown. And we know, more often than not, leg shakers don’t know they’re actually disrupting the whole row. We encourage you to bring it up the next time it feels like only your row is experiencing turbulence. You need your beauty sleep, too.
The Loud Talker
You’re in a flying metal tube 30,000 feet in the air. There isn’t much wiggle room, even if you’re in first class. Everyone can hear and see you, whether you like it or not, so why in the world is the tita in front of you literally shouting for a blanket? Rude AF.
The Armrest Hogger
In a perfect world, you and your seatmate would take turns, but unless you’re sitting next to someone you know, the armrest is a war zone.
Uh, esqueeze me, ma’am, not everyone wants to listen to your hugot playlist. Use your headphones! And if you don’t have a pair, ASK.
If you’re the type of person who gets sick right after a flight, it’s because you were just exposed to other people’s germs, and there was no escape. There’s always that one rebel child who doesn’t take the doctor’s advice and still gets on a flight even while she’s coughing up a lung. To you, we say, COVER YOUR FUCKING MOUTH.
The IDGAF Parents
If you’re going to subject a plane full of people to your contribution to the expansion of the human race, the least you could do is make sure your spawn knows proper flying etiquette: 1) Don’t kick someone’s chair, 2) Don’t wipe any of your fluids on any surface that isn’t your body, and 3) Don't change your baby's diaper on the folding tray.
