Pet Peeves while flying? Mine is people who recline their seats in front of me. Especially if they are shorter than me.

Those psychos who take their shoes off and then cross their legs so their bare or socked foot is just there in midair for all to deal with.

Close second to the foot psychos are the recent passengers who try to open the emergency exit mid flight or on the ground and then walk the wing of the plane. Having not traveled the last few years, I wasn’t aware that swinging a coffee pot was now a skill for air travel as much as knowing how to pack light.

I can’t believe people are defending takings shoes off in flight 🤢 you’re part of the problem, people

likesmart

People that think seats can’t be reclined and we all have to endure sitting upright for several hours in what is already an uncomfortable arrangement.

Also kids. Especially the ones that kick a chair all the time. Or cry. Or make loud noises. Or play something in their tablet without headphones. Or have no sense of cleanliness and dirty up the plane. Or their parents for bringing them on.

Other than that flights are cool

I always buy a seat in front of my kid, and 1 seat next to my kid.

People that complain about people reclining their seat. On my last flight the guy behind me complained to the flight attendant that I reclined my seat. She said that is unfortunate but he has the right to recline his seat. I recommend you upgrade for extra legroom or a higher class of seating next time. I snickered to myself when she said that. 😂

likefunnysmart

This is a crazy topic. Reclining a seat is the seat owners choice. I have gotten mad at someone who threw their seat back and broke my laptop monitor but seat reclining should be 100% accepted.

My pet peeve is people who complain about others reclining their seats

likeupliftingfunnyhelpful

Nothing like having to fight the person behind you because they keep tapping your arm so you straighten your seat 🙄

People using the back of the seat in front of them to stand up instead of the arm rests.

I’m with you guys, I hate whenever I have go sit aisle, but I’ve sometimes fallen into this because some people don’t stand up for you to pass by…

People who crowd the baggage carousal. Everyone needs to step back, form a larger circle and only step forward when the see their bags 🤦🏼‍♀️

Dude, I’m happy to stare at my phone and chill most of the time but sometimes situations need leadership. This was a cluster.

People that bring their babies/kids into business class and up. I rarely upgrade, but when I do and there’s a screaming baby, I want to jump out of the plane because I feel like I’ve just wasted money.

SA2, I don’t usually do this but feel like I need to apologize to you for the people on this thread and let you know that your mental health issues do not need to be explained or justified to anyone for any reason. You said multiple times that you are seeking treatment for your difficulties so why they still feel the need to tell you that you need to get medical help is beyond me. I’m sorry for the nastiness on this thread. A day after a mass shooting of innocents where the perpetrator was supposedly bullied (not that his actions were justifiable), you’d THINK people that people would behave with a little more grace or compassion, particularly towards those with mental health struggles, but I guess that’s asking too much. Oh, and once again, people need to learn the definition of PET PEEVES

like

People that put their jackets and backpacks in the overhead bin when they also have a piece of luggage in there. Really bothers me when I have to tell someone to get up and move their stuff.

likefunny

I agree with the pet peeve. Especially in first class. If I board late and I can’t fit a bag in FC because everyone put all of their stuff up, and I’m checking a bag so your Tumi can ride above your head, then you suck. At least wait to see if everyone’s rollerbag is up before you show overhead.

Related, I hate when the flight crew uses the First/Premium overhead for their multiple bags.

When people get up once the flight has landed. Sit your ass down.

The 10 people or so who always go up the the poor flight attendant asking to be seated next to each other because “somehow” they booked them together, but now they are apart… (x10 when people with kids try to pull it)

Yup this is mine as well.

Gate lice - people in later boarding groups that crowd the boarding area well before their group is called. Example: 10 gate lice in boarding group 10 have been standing in the boarding area since boarding started.

People who shut the overhead before it’s full. I saw a guy fold his suit jacket, lay it horizontal in the overhead cabinet, and shut it.

I got up and threw my backpack on top out of spite lol
