Passengers From Hell

With air travel, the irritations are numerous: tiresome delays, bad food and long queues, not to mention your fellow passengers! TripAdvisor has complied a list of the most annoying types – do you recognize any?

  • The Oblivious Parent
    • The kids kick your seat from take-off to touchdown, but these parents might as well be on another plane.
  • The Space Invader
    • The armrest hog whose arms, knees and legs invade your personal space.
  • The Bio-hazard
    • Sneezing, sniffling and sweating, this bloke should wear a HAZMAT (hazardous material) sticker on his lapel.
  • The Chatterboxes
    • From their divorce to their dental work, they’re the tell-all talker – and you’re their captive audience.
  • The Smelly-food Snacker
    • Kim-chi (a strong-smelling Korean dish) is delicious. So is strong cheese and garlic. But that close to your face?
  • The Carry-all
    • She’s filled the entire overhead locker luggage compartment, and the space in front of YOUR seat, with all her stuff.
  • The Self-entitled
    • He treats the flight attendants as personal servants, with a trigger-finger on the call-button.
  • The Seat Swapper
    • They troll the cabin trying to “trade up” or give you their best puppy eyes and plead, “Can you let us sit together?”
  • The Nervous Wreck
    • She whimpers over every sound and shudder, white-knuckling it all the way.
  • The Entertainment Director
    • He’s blasting his tunes or watching car-chase movies on his laptop, and you can’t change the channel.
