The Absolute Worst People to Ever Fly on an Airplane
There was a time when people dressed up to go on an airplane. Now you're lucky if people even get dressed at all. We wish we were joking, but take a look at the hit Instagram @passengershaming, and you'll see that passengers with no shirts is only the beginning of the disgrace. When we wrote the unwritten rules of flying, we wrongly assumed "wear pants" was a given.
We took a look through the Passenger Shaming archives to find the worst-of-the-worst behaviors of airplane passengers. Don't be one of these people. But maybe sneak a photo of them.
