There"s nothing worse than being stuck on a plane with a bunch of people doing
annoying things.
But which kinds of passengers are the most irritating? To
find out, Expedia.com asked its users.
Here are the most infuriating people on
the plane, according to Expedia"s Airplane Etiquette Survey:10.
The Overhead
Bin Hog " All photos: Thinkstock"Thirty-two percent of respondents hate
this person.
You the one — she stows her probably too big for the space
bag in first available spot, nowhere near her seat.
Thirteen percent admitted
to being guilty of this in-flight sin, while seventy-three percent say they
themselves wait patiently until they reach their assigned seat before stowing
their luggage in the overhead bin.9.
Seat-Back Guy To recline or not to
recline: Emotions run high around this question, and 32 percent of those
surveyed can"t stand the ones who do.
nearly one third (32 percent) of
Americans say they would either prefer to have reclining seats banned
entirely, or at least restricted to set times during short-haul flights.
Yet
only 31 percent refuse to recline their own seats.
Among the larger percentage
who do lean back, 30 percent do so when they plan to sleep, 28 percent recline
if the flight exceeds three hours, and 13 percent do so immediately after
takeoff.
Thirteen percent recline when the passenger in front of them does,
domino-style and 26 percent of people would recline their seat punitively if
the passenger behind them was aggressive or rude.
Twelve percent would still
recline if the passenger behind them was tall, and 10 percent would recline
even if the passenger behind them was noticeably pregnant.Related: Road Rage:
