If I had to bet, I’d guess that we’ve all come across a bunch of strange or odd passengers during flights.
When thinking of this topic, the first thing that came to mind was a guy on my flight home from Dubai. He was laughing as loud as could be while watching a movie. I’m pretty sure that the whole plane could hear his obnoxiously loud laugh! Definitely strange…
I thought about this topic due to a slideshow that I came across from Smarter Travel.
The slideshow takes a look at “that super-creepy flyer” that exists on every flight.
Here is Smarter Travel’s list:
- Hit On Someone
- Stare Into Space
- Utilize Virgin’s Seat-to-Seat Chat
- Watch Porn
- Send A Drink
- Get Wasted
- Invade Personal Space
I think that overall, Smarter Travel came up with a pretty good list but I wouldn’t consider staring into space to be so creepy. Maybe you’re tired and just can’t focus but you also can’t fall asleep. So you stare into space…
I also thought of another creepy/ strange thing which was left off of this list. How about people who talk to themselves? Just a couple of days back, I noticed this guy sitting in front of me on my flight home from Charleston.
Towards the end of the flight I notice him making weird hand motions and even speaking out loud although he was traveling alone. I peaked up and noticed he was watching a basketball game. So maybe his behavior wasn’t so strange.
I thought it looked really weird as did a couple of girls sitting to my right which were also watching him and laughing about the guy’s actions…
What’s the strangest or creepiest thing you’ve ever seen a passenger do during a flight?
