Insta-infamy: Passengers behaving badly, again

In case you didn't know, there's a MEGA popular Instagram account out there on the interwebz that attempts to publicly shame the badly behaved passengers amongst us.

In case you didn’t know, there’s a MEGA popular Instagram account out there on the interwebz that attempts to publicly shame the badly behaved passengers amongst us.

Well you should know, because we only wrote an article on it like freakin’ three months ago!

But anyway, assuming this is the first time you’ve heard of it, the Instagram account, appropriately called Passenger Shaming, shines the public light of shame on all those who dare break social etiquette at 34,000 feet in the air with their bad behaviour.

Define bad behaviour, you say?

Sure: bad behaviour as in disrupting the generally chilled out mood of a flight cabin with obnoxious drunken rants. Or behaviour that takes the form of a passenger whipping off their pants mid flight just to get a little more comfy – to hell with the comfort levels of all those who have to share a cabin with them.

Yeah, those people.

Since first writing about it back in October, the account has grown another 50k followers, and it’s been pretty busy the last few weeks uploading images of passengers that just acted like fools/douchebags over the what was only one of the busiest times to fly in the calendar…

Douchebags such as this guy:

Okay, okay, this has most definitely been photoshopped (although I’ve never flown on a Russian domestic airline before…) as someone this drunk would never be allowed on board. And then there’s the bottle of wine he’s chugging. Again, not allowed. 

But surely this dude below is equally as annoying:

Playing your flute? Seriously? Me thinks not even Ron Burgundy could get away with that on a flight. Even if you do look like old mate JC, that kind of behaviour is still non-redeeming…

Then there are those passengers that are just plain disrespectful. Imagine having to sit next to this passenger on a flight from Bali back to Sydney – eww.

And then there’s this guy.

Meet Jim. Jim believes you should only wear comfortable clothes on a flight, or none at all. Of course, Jim prefers the latter, and he’s okay with the rest of the cabin checking out his jocks.

No Jim, that’s just not socially acceptable behaviour mate.

Leave that for the lounge room back home or at the hotel – not on the plane!

Have you ever had to share the plane with an absolute douchebag? Tell us all about it in the comments below!
