Think of the most unusual (or disgusting) scene you've ever seen on a plane flight. 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 and bad manners seen on flights - and recorded by passengers or commissioners.

The public shaming site was started by Shawn Kathleen — a mom, former police officer and paramedic who worked as a flight attendant for seven years. She came up with the original concept and started the brand on her own approximately five 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 just how rude people can get while on a plane 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.

I'm always the last to leave a plane, being in a wheelchair, as I have to wait for it to be brought up to the planes door etc etc. This means I get to chat to the staff and see the disgusting state some folk leave the plane in. One time I saw a sight the same/ worse than this and commented to the staff at how shock I was, especially as they came round every 30 minutes with rubbish bags, I felt so sorry for whomever had to clean it up. Some people should have their flying rights revoked, or not be allowed any luggage except checked in and not be allowed any food etc on the plane so they have no opportunity to make a mess.

Christine M Quigley

That would be awesome! Hand them a bag, and have them clean up, or ban them from the airline. And shame them on social media.
