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.

Money does not automatically mean class. *takes notes*

Sammiche
Community Member

First class doesn't automatically mean money. I don't get to fly very often, and I have to save my pennies to do it because I HAVE to fly first class. I'm obese and the majority of my weight is in my butt and thighs, so while I can buckle my seat belt without an extender, I can't fit my giant butt in an economy seat. Cheaper to fly first class than to buy two economy seats. I'm slowly losing the weight, but my butt unfortunately will be the last place I'll lose it.

People these days feel so entitled! The airlines should look at the tickets and seats, then Ed flag them as pigs, then make sure they are all seated together in the back of the plane.. it’s a sanitation and health hazard as well as just nasty. They should be charged with littering in a public enclosed space!
