Think of the most unusual (or disgusting) scene you've ever seen when traveling by plane. Now imagine sharing that with more than 745,000 followers on Instagram? This is how "Passenger Shaming" works, an Instagram account dedicated to spreading the most bizarre moments seen on flights - and recorded by passengers or commissioners.

It was started by Shawn Kathleen — a mom, former police officer and paramedic who worked as a flight attendant for 7 years. She came up with the original concept and started the brand on her own approximately 5 years ago. It has since been featured in most media outlets across the globe and was named one of the “Best 100 Instagram accounts" by Rolling Stone Magazine.

Scroll down and see for yourself!

I guess the parents might have been asleep. Could have been a 12 hour flight and the kid was trying to keep themselves busy and not wake mum or dad.

Out of the million things you can do on a plane - watching a movie, listening to music, talking to the person next to you, socializing, being a good fellow passenger - you watch porn... Whoa!

This one is just rude. Not only because she puts her feet where they apparently do not belong, but mostly because she is so full of herself. Why is it so hard to understand that people may not want to interact with somebody else's body parts?

EVERYONE looks hot, sweaty, and miserable in that pic. It looks like the shamed passenger just lifted her shirt so that the air from the vents could dry/cool her off. If everyone else looked like they were perfectly comfortable with the temperature, then I could see the problem. But in this case, I'm siding with the overheated lady.

Looks like a rain coat worn back-to-front. Maybe a bit stupid depending how much it breaths but how is this anywhere near a "worst passenger"-type situation, they aren't affecting someone else in that kind of manner.
