Flights are made infinitely worse if the other people around you do not behave well. Common causes of grief among passengers are other fliers making too much noise, moving around too much or being smelly. However, in some instances, it’s the disturbing positions others get themselves into – as one photo shows. An image of one badly behaved traveller has gone viral after it was posted to Instagram account @passengershaming.
The alarming snap shows a man who definitely didn’t care about travel etiquette.
He is pictured lying back along a row of seats with his legs up in the air against the side of the plane.
To make matters even worse, his legs are splayed wide apart in a most unseemly position.
Instagram users have come together on the social media platform to share their thoughts on the lewd move.
“Such disrespect for everyone in the cabin,” one person posted. “I just cannot believe these kinds of people really exist,” another commented.
“Really?! Why would someone think this is normal behaviour anywhere never mind a plane! The mind boggles at the level of stupidity,” a third wrote on Instagram.
This is far from the first time passengers have been appalled at the actions of other travellers and taken to social media to shame them.
One photo which went viral captured a traveller who was being highly insensitive to others around them.
The shocking image shows them standing on their plane seat without wearing any trousers.
Only the lower half of the person can be seen. They are wearing just an orange top and a blue pair of underwear.
Their entire legs are exposed in the alarming snap – and has caused consternation among viewers.
There is no explanation for why the traveller decided to dispense with their clothing – or why they were standing on their seat.
Another photo shared by passengershaming captured the plane cabin of an Israeli carrier Israir Airlines flight.
In the aisle, the legs of a person can be seen sticking up into the air.
They appear to be doing a handstand between the seats, in a very unusual travel move.
The flier is wearing pale blue jeans and no shoes. Their sock-covered feet reach so high up they are touching the roof of the cabin.
