In the eyes of many travelers, airplanes are a kind of necessary evil. They provide the only way to get from here to there in a reasonable amount of time, but there are so many things that make airplanes and flying such a hassle. It all starts before you get to the airport with all the traffic, continues once you’re inside and dealing with baggage fees and security, and only continues once you actually board the plane for your flight.
It’s this last step, perhaps, that can prove to be the most harrowing of the air travel experience. Why? Well, it has to do with all of those strangers that you’re packed into with inside an aluminum tube that flies 30,000 feet in the air…
If you ask us, there are just some people that shouldn’t be allowed to fly. In fact, if we were able to get rid of some or even all of the people below, we think that air travel wouldn’t be nearly as bad as everyone usually thinks it is. Who are the 15 people who shouldn’t allowed to fly? Let’s take a look.
1. The Litter Bug
This is the person that throws their trash on the ground, shoves it into net in the seat in front of him or her, and generally doesn’t care about cleanliness.
2. The Armrest Hog
If you’re going to use the armrest, make sure that your elbow says on the armrest. If that elbow is even vaguely in my personal space, we’re going to have issues!
3. Mr. or Mrs. Needs a Shower
When you’re going to be in close quarters with complete strangers for hours on end, at least have the decency to take a shower. Okay?
4. The Shoeless Flyer
There’s not a person alive that wants to see your feet, let alone smell them. Keep your shoes on!
5. Mr. or Mrs. Feet Everywhere
Feet aren’t meant to be planted on the ground, not shoved into the back of the seat in front of you or sticking out into the aisle.
