This has been covered many times, but it should go without saying. Do not put your feet on the walls, seats, and especially other passengers when flying. Accounts like @PassengerShame have done a good job at pointing out this bad behavior, yet it still happens all the time.


no way people actually do this im flabbergasted

TikTok user @teatinz was on a recent flight when she felt something cold poking her leg from under the seat. She looked down and saw a man’s bare foot under the seat and touching her leg. This is wrong on several levels. Keep your shoes on (at least wear clean socks if they need to come off) and don’t touch other passengers, ever.

Foot on Wall

On my flight on Saturday, a woman thought nothing of rubbing her bare feet all over the window and wall as she contorted into all sorts of acrobatic positions. This was on a two-hour flight and completely unnecessary. I blocked the passengers faces, even though she and her husband should be shamed. I’m just happy I was not seated in front of her or it would not have been pretty.

This video has been circulating for some time, but it makes me feel good in my decision to always wipe down these screens. Gross!

Anthony’s Take: Even if your feet don’t smell and are nicely pedicured, they do not belong on the walls, seats, screens, or anywhere but on the floor on a plane (and in your own space). I don’t think you need to be in a suit to fly, but a little manners would go a long way.
