Terrible Passengers

A friend shared this article with me displaying photos of some of the worst airline passengers and I just had to pass it on. It is one of those stupid list articles which I generally hate, but I couldn’t resist sharing since there are some doosies here.

Along with some more famous pictures like the drunk man who had to be taped to his seat, you will find everything from people changing diapers in the aisle to passengers sleeping practically naked. In other words, there is something for everyone!

I guess I have been pretty lucky in my many flights over the years. Sure I have seen the occasional passenger stick their bare foot up on the bulkhead, but for the most part things have been tame during my flights. I think the most interesting part of these photos is that they were taken by others passengers and most were posted to the Passenger Shaming Instagram feed. (Take a look. You are guaranteed to laugh, however I personally don’t take photos of other passengers.)

I’ll end this with a call to action. Post your most interesting airline stories in the comments! Have you flown with one of these people? Let me know!

Update: In a crazy turn of events, Jennifer at Jetsetter’s Homestead (Great site BTW) posted at almost the same time about the same article. She provides a deeper level of insight and talks a little about the morality of actually taking these photos!
