Flights in first class afford plane passengers a certain level of privacy as well as luxury. But one woman on an American Airlines flight from Cancun, Mexico seemed to overestimate quite how secluded she was. A neighbouring female passenger was so shocked to see what the woman got up to during the journey that she documented her experience on Instagram. Passenger Laura Lakey uploaded a series of photos to the social media platform of the woman – whose face cannot be seen.
Images show the passenger lounging in her first class pod with her shoes and socks removed.
To make matters worse, the man in the pod next to her also has bare feet.
Both passengers are resting their feet on the dividing wall and on top of one another in an alarmingly flirtatious display of footsie.
In the hilarious series of photographs, the couple – who one presumes already knew each other – become increasingly intimate.
In one snap the woman’s bare feet all but hide the man’s from sight as she presses up against him.
The pair seem to show no care that they are putting their naked feet on the pod walls, which will be used by future passengers.
In a further display of poor plane etiquette, a third photo shows the woman resting her foot high up on the wall in front of her so she is encroaching onto the space of the passenger in front.
According to Lakey, the flyer who was in front was “not impressed” when the woman’s foot approached his television.
The Instagram user captioned the photos: “First class seat – $1000. Too many drinks in the airport before boarding – $100.
“Ointment to cure WHATEVER their feet will have after using restrooms barefoot – $20.
“Passing out after playing what she thought was a sexy game of footsie over the first class divider wall… priceless!
“Guy in seat in front NOT impressed when she finished by resting her feet over his television!”
Alarmingly this is far from the first time two people have indulged in similar plane antics.
An Instagram photo shared by Instagram account passengershaming shows two flyers sitting in their seats with their legs high in the air and resting on the headrest in front.
To make matters much, much worse, both flyers have removed their shoes and their bare feet are sticking up for everyone to see.
The traveller by the window’s face cannot be seen they are slumped so far down in the chair but their legs are placed either side of the passenger’s head in front – with one foot resting against the side of the cabin in a rather lewd-looking pose.
The flyer seems to show no consideration for the person in front and whether they are affected by the naked limbs by their head.
