21 of the most absurdly inconsiderate airline passengers to ever fly the friendly skies

We’ve all run into that aeroplane passenger who just doesn’t understand, or care, that a plane is a public space.

“Are these a–holes serious?” the Facebook page’s description reads. “Photos taken by anonymous flight attendants & passengers from all over the world. Don’t end up here.”

Here are 21 of the absolute worst passengers, as highlighted on Passenger Shaming’s Instagram.

Clip, clip.

At least it's not on the floor.


A little love.

Have to get that workout in.

Couldn't make it to the bathroom.

The dual monitor setup.

Life is a garbage.

But where is it coming from?

This seems intentional.
