Passenger Called Out For 'Criminal Act' To Get To Plane Seat

Passenger Called Out For 'Criminal Act' To Get To Plane Seat

Adherence to plane etiquette can make or break a flight, and one passenger couldn't believe what he was seeing

A passenger has been called out for committing a 'criminal act' to get to her plane seat. Watch here:

Flying can be both exciting and stressful, with the behaviour of your fellow passengers often dictating whether it's a pleasure or a chore.

If people follow the unwritten rules of airline etiquette, then it can be a breeze – but if they don't, you might find yourself counting down the minutes till you're back on the ground.

This was the case for one fella, who was so appalled by the behaviour of a passenger on a long-haul flight that he decided to share it on social media.

The man slyly filmed the woman as she clambered past passengers by standing on the arm rests to get to her window seat.

Sharing the clip on Twitter, he captioned the post: "The most criminal activity I've ever seen on an airplane.

"This woman was hopping over other passengers the whole 7 hour flight."

She certainly seemed to have made herself at home on the plane, and commenting on the video, many people agreed that she'd strayed outside the parameters of standard in-flight etiquette.

One person wrote: "So, she goes to the lav in socks, picks up some urine and faecal bits on them, sprinkle some more gross things from the galley and aisle, then put those disgusting things on my armrest? No thanks!"

Another added: "Wait. She couldn't walk around? Where are the flight attendants? No one told her NO!? Oh HELL NO."

A third commented: "Nobody's going to talk about those filthy socks and the fact that she's flying in pyjamas?"

While another noted it would be an 'opportune time for turbulence to kick in'.

Not cool?

So yes, some people weren't sure it was the safest way for her to get to her seat, some people were uncomfortable with how comfortable she'd got in her jammies, and a lot of people thought it was just a bit gross.

But as always seems to be the way on social media, viewers couldn't reach a consensus on the clip, and many people saw nothing wrong with her behaviour.

One person said: "So each time she has to leave, or get back to her seat, her fellow passengers including baby, have to get up and jostle in the aisle. Much easier to do what she did and those seated near her didn't seem to mind. That is what matters most."

Another wrote: "Will not comment the safety as no point but...she's got shoes off, which is good thing. Also, are you sure she did not agree this with fellow passengers? maybe it's her friends? there is nothing like a good stretch during long flight."

A third added: "I always do this lol… you guys cannot be serious!! Wow."

And this folks is why people will always get on each other's t**s – one person's gross safety risk is another's convenient timesaving method.
