Flights see plane passengers often doing bizarre moves in a bid to get more comfortable. An Instagram photo has captured one woman’s disturbing action on a plane and left viewers shocked. The image was shared by Instagram account passengershaming which often calls people out on outrageous mid-flight behaviour. This female flier was snapped showing a great lack of consideration for the person behind her.
Flights: Instagram photo shocks as female plane passenger does this disgusting move
The woman - who has very long hair - has draped her ponytail over the top of her seat.
She is sitting upright in her seat, earphones visibly in, as the hairband off the ponytail rests on the headrest.Consequently her hair - which flows down the back of the seat - is right in front of the passenger sitting behind the woman.
Not only is it invading their personal space but it is dangling right over the traveller’s drink on the tray.
It’s also obscuring the magazines in the seat back should the offended passenger want to read them.
Instagram users have been horrified by the female traveller’s selfish move.
“This woman clearly doesn’t realise that the tray table plastic has the most germs of anywhere on a [plane],” one person wrote. “Who wants their hair all up in there? Gross. And the level of disrespect to the person behind. Rude.”
“How are people so oblivious?!” another Instagram viewer commented on the photo.
Other people came up with inventive ways to get back at the female passenger.
“Pair of scissors will fix that right up,” one said, “Pull the table up and lock it,” another added.
“I’d be tying knots the whole flight,” a third person commented.
Another said: “I would pull it” while a fifth joked: “That’s when you dip that ponytail in your drink!!”
The Instagram account has shared photos of numerous people who have done strange and disgusting moves on planes.
Another photo rapidly going viral is that of a woman who appears to have made the bizarre decision to wear latex gloves on her feet.
The effect of the disposable gloves is both grotesque and entertaining at the same time.
The fingers of the gloves also stuck out beyond her toes, weirdly elongating her feet. Her dark nail polish on her toenails can be seen through the cloudy gloves and adds to the strange effect. It’s unclear why she decided to don the gloves.
