Air travel is a high-stakes, high-stress scenario, and it can bring the worst out of people. Flight crews are beacons of calm and professionalism as strangers sit together and fly through a metal tube in the air, and some passengers are awfully disrespectful. A Reddit thread asked, "Flight Attendants and/or Pilots of Reddit, what are some things passengers do that get on your nerves?"
These behaviors need to be tucked away in the overhead bin.
Former flight attendant here... 15 years I've seen it all! (and sorry for formatting, on mobile)
-Walking throughout the aircraft barefoot. Especially into the toilets... Those floors are not as clean as you think they are!
-People who talk to us and treat us like scum. And yes, we'll provide better service to the ones who are nice, or think of them first when a whole row is free and they need to lie down and sleep during an 11hr flight.
-Parents that don't watch their kids during the flight. The aircraft isn't childproof and there's a surprising amount of things they can injure themselves on.
