Most of us have been there while flying — sitting next to a loud sleeper or perhaps jammed alongside someone who has no concept of personal space.
One frequent flyer has listed exactly who she believes to be the worst kind of passenger at an airport, and that a certain type of flyer “deserves jail”.
“Here are the things that make you truly an awful traveler,” she said on the now viral video.
“You do any of these things, you should take a long hard look at yourself in the mirror before you travel again.”
“Let’s begin with the people who are unprepared at the front of the security line. It’s a security line, you know what’s coming.”
“Yet there are still people fumbling around with their laptop like a child who forgot their homework. ‘Do I have to take off my jacket?’ Yes, spoiler alert. Yes, you always have to take off your jacket.”
“And please keep the theatrical water chugging to the Uber. Okay, relax.”
One of the other pet peeves was the amount of “gate crowders” who swarm the departure area ahead of their flight, and also those “a**hole” flyers who cram excessive amounts of bags in the overhead locker.
“It always baffles me with the bins because it’s very simple, just don’t be an a**hole,” she said.
“Put your overstuffed away suitcase and your ugly little personal item in the seat in front of you.”
For those who like a chat on board a flight, well, you won’t want to be sitting next to Ms Najjar who said she would rather not speak to anyone.
“This one is going to be controversial, but I don’t like it when strangers talk to me on planes,” she said.
“I really don’t care about your business trip. No thank you I would not like to see pictures of your grandchildren. Some people are chatty. Maybe we can have a chatty section and a not chatty section. Call me a Grinch, I don’t really care.”
But for the vocal traveler, the worst flyer of all is the one who wears an open toe shoe into the cabin.
“Controversial one, but I don’t think open-toe shoes should be allowed on planes,” she said.
“If you think about taking off your shoes and socks on an airplane, you deserve jail. I don’t want to see them, I don’t want to smell them.”
