Being crammed into a cramped coach seat is bad enough, but your fellow flyers can make things so much worse with their bad behavior. If you’ve ever been stuck next to a loud talker or behind someone who has reclined all the way into your lap, you know what we’re referring to.
A new survey conducted by Only Wanderlust has ranked the most annoying things people do while flying. Here are the activities you should spare your fellow flyers from while on a plane.
The Most Annoying Airline Passenger Behaviors
- Seat kicking
- Bad body odor
- Talking loudly
- Leaning or pulling on seats
- Acting intoxicated
- Crying babies or children
- Reclining seats
- Wearing strong fragrances
