An Airplane etiquette study by Expedia shows that boozers, excessive chatters and inattentive parents are among the top problematic passengers. Here’s what Americans think about fellow fliers
On etiquette violations
Rear-seat kickers are the worst kind of etiquette offenders it seems while inattentive parents rank second. Aromatic passengers—either with inadequate hygiene or with excessive perfume or cologne—are also among the top problematic passengers.
A whopping 62 per cent said they would alert a flight attendant while 33 per cent said they would endure such behaviour in silence. However, 10 per cent said they would confront misbehaving passengers directly.
On chatty behaviour
Most Americans, it seems would love some silence while they are flying. Expedia study shows that 65 per cent passengers dread sitting next to chatty fellow passengers while 35 per cent would not mind paying to sit in a designated quiet zone.
On rude behaviour
Americans do not take rudeness so lightly. The study shows that 13 per cent would record someone being offensive on their phones while five per cent would turn to social media. Three per cent said they would turn to social channels while two per cent said they would tweet about it.
