We’ve all been there. Stuck on a plane with an annoying passenger. Maybe it’s a kid kicking your seat. Or a passenger whose snoring matches the jet engine’s sound. Here’s our rant about the 7 Most Annoying Airline Passengers (complete with a travel meme for each one!).
7 Most Annoying Airline Passengers
- The Kid who kicks your seat
- The seat back recliner guy
- The Big Guy on the Plane
- Perfume Lady
- The Lady Who Won’t Shut Up
- Guy looking at porn
- Snoring Passenger
Bonus: The Passenger who sneezes next to you while Coronavirus be going ’round!
The Kid who kicks your seat
The annoying little twerp whose oblivious, hippy-loving, granola -eating, everyone-gets-a-trophy parents are not interested in applying a single iota of discipline to little Johnny.
Someone please step up and parent this little guy already. Listen, we got no problem with kids crying on planes (no harm no foul they can’t control that), but straight up turdliness is uncalled for and one of the worst and most annoying airplane passengers of all time!
The Seat Back Recliner Guy
It’s kind of an unwritten travel rule. Don’t lean your sat back (sure, this is debatable). We are all stuck together here in our little sardine can. Stop reclining your seat!
The Big Guy on the Plane
I love how the big guy always picks the seat next to me. What karmic god did I irritate in a past life!? I get it, big fellas need to travel to. By why do they need to sit next to me?
The lady who apparently has bathed and deodorized in the entire perfume section of Macy’s decides to sit next to me. #Awesome.
This goes for the dude wearing way too much cologne. I sat next to a guy last week who must have been paid in Calvin Klein cologne instead of salary. Holy. Cow.
I don’t get people who wear insane amounts of perfume in general. Do you really smell that bad? But, when you decide to go that route and then jump into an aluminium tube with me for 3 hours…you go straight to the top of the most annoying airline passengers list.
Lady Who Won’t Shut Up
I think it’s great when the old lady next to me want’s to talk the entire flight between Boston and San Francisco. I would love to see every picture ever taken of your grandchildren.
Actually, I’ve met some nice people this way, but sometimes you just want to watch Better Call Saul and be left alone.
Guy looking at porn
There’s always one guy. One creep who simply can’t wait until he gets to the hotel to look at porn. For the love of God, man. You might need some help. Instead of being the one of the worlds most annoying airline passengers you are just the grossest.
Who can sleep on planes anyway? It seems like the few that can are always loud snorers. And sitting near me. For a 4 hour flight. Can’t. Get. Enough. Of. It.
When the person in seat next to you sneezes but Coronavirus is ruining the world.
