15 Annoying Airplane Moments That Set People Off This Week

To travel by way of an airplane is to put yourself in an unpredictable arena. You just never know if you’re going to end up seated next to, behind, or in front of a waking nightmare of a human being. Some people possess zero self-awareness when they travel. This can result in you having to deal with enraging or downright unacceptable behavior. For instance, the person who puts their foot up against your chair and almost on your armrest. Get out of here with that. We’ll take a look at the most annoying airplane moments people endured this week.

1. “The woman next to me on my flight is watching a musical without headphones.”

2. “This passenger put her bare foot in between my armrests during a 10 hour flight. I noticed when I felt her toenails on my arm.”
