Passenger reveals couple’s unbearable behaviour during four-hour flight!

When we think of air travel, we often imagine the hustle and bustle of airports, the excitement of heading to new destinations, or perhaps the cramped conditions of economy class.

For one passenger, a typical flight became an unforgettable spectacle of questionable behaviour, sparking discussions about in-flight etiquette.

Online content creator Flea shared his bewildering experience on a four-hour flight on social media.

He became an unwilling audience to a couple's public display of affection, which involved spooning across a row of seats—without shoes, no less.

His post, showing images of the couple's bare feet protruding into the aisle went viral, sparking a flurry of online commentary.

The photos captured the couple in various states of embrace—a sight that would make seasoned travellers cringe.

The couple's behaviour—which included making heart shapes with their hands while cuddling—breached unwritten social norms and raised safety concerns.

‘How did the flight attendant not say anything?’ one comment asked.

The online community was quick to express their outrage.

‘I'm more mad that they're barefoot,’ one comment read.

‘Breaking up in two months’, another comment said.

Others reminisced about similar frustrations with overly affectionate couples in high school hallways, now taken to new heights—quite literally.

The skies have seen their fair share of etiquette breaches, prompting heated debates among travellers.

This incident is just the latest in a series of events that have brought the topic of aeroplane etiquette to the forefront.

From passengers playing loud music during flights to that couple cuddling out in the open, it seems that the skies are no longer the bastion of civility they once were.

Always remember the do’s and don’ts of travelling to ensure a pleasant flight for yourself and fellow passengers.

No new news today? At least you could have changed the date on the article to pretend it was a new one!
NO, and if i did I would not be silent. This is the kind of drongos that are being bred today.
Really by rights, the Stewardess should go & ask one of the Pilots to come out & speak to such people & tell them they are on an Aeroplane, not in the bedroom & if they continue to carry on then they'll be reported to the Tower & have Police at the Airport to arrest them.

What happened to the announcement “passengers are requested to keep their seatbelts fastened at all times while in their seats”?

Have seen some expansive cuddles and really felt embarrassed in witnessing their fervour. However it’s not hurting anyone and better to see expressions of love than violence. Each to their own and what one is comfortable with
