10 passengers types that cause grief on planes revealed

AIRLINERatings.com – a global airline safety and product ratings website – released the result of its survey – Passengers from Hell – on 10 passengers types that readers felt caused the most grief on planes.

Based on the survey, respondents were asked to rank passenger types 1 to 10 from the most irritating to the least whereby smelly passengers and out of control children emerged as the leading complaints of passengers, a statement said.

"The level of frustration for the smelly passenger reflects a decline in hygiene standards and there has been a significant shift in passengers' gripes about their fellow travellers, who are either not conscious of their odour or don't care," said editor-in-chief of AirlineRatings.com, Geoffrey Thomas.

This is followed by passengers who recline their seats for a long time passengers who hog the armrest came.

The survey also reported about the increasing amount of carry-on baggage was ranked fifth on the list and it has become a major problem, particularly in the US where many airlines charge for checked-in baggage. — Bernama

The cramped conditions in economy catapulted the passenger with the weak bladder into the sixth position, chatterbox was ranked in seventh place and passengers who did exercises in the aisle ranked for eighth, the statement said.

Arrogant and demanding passenger who insists on being served before anyone else and constantly annoying the flight attendants in ninth position and finishing in 10th place was the window hogger who pulls at the window shade for the entire flight.
