Flights are slowly resuming around the world and while that’s good news for intrepid travellers, there are some less enjoyable parts of the onboard experience that some passengers are being reminded of. Though social distancing is preferable, not all flights are able to achieve it, and being in close quarters with seatmates meant witnessing some interesting antics for some recent passengers.
A couple were caught on camera on a flight getting up close and personal, much to the dismay of onlookers.
The viral video was shared on Instagram account @PassengerShaming and has amassed more than 3,500 comments at the time of writing.
In the footage, a man and woman can be seen sitting a row apart on a packed plane.
Despite not being sat next to one another, they have managed to share a very personal moment.

The woman, who is sat directly in front of the anonymous man, appears to be helping him enjoy some relaxation mid-flight.
The man can be seen extending his leg and naked foot from the row behind onto the woman’s lap.
It is the woman’s action, however, that has left onlookers feeling queasy.
She is filmed rubbing and massaging his entire foot.
While it likely boosted the man’s inflight experience, it turned the journey sour for others.

One Instagram user commented on the video saying: “I am not okay after this.”
Another said it left them “gagging”.
It evoked similarly dramatic reactions from other onlookers too.
“I literally screamed as I saw this,” wrote a viewer.
However, despite the negative reaction from some, other users found themselves agreeing with the couple’s move.
Flights: Another passenger shocked with bare feet on a recent flight
“Why are people grossed out? That’s love right there,” commented one.
Another even asked: “How can I find someone to do this for me on my flights?”
Although many airlines have only recently returned to the skies, it seems inappropriate behaviour onboard has made a rapid comeback.
On another flight, passengers were left feeling queasy at one man’s attempt at a “romantic gesture”.

A photograph of the moment was similarly shared with @PassengerShaming.
In it, the man can be seen with his bare feet and toes exposed, in an attempt to catch the attention of a woman in front of him.
Sandwiched between the man’s toes is what appears to be a tiny note.
According to a witness account posted by @PassengerShaming: “This is a guy, with a note between his toes, trying to pass a note to a girl in the seat in front of him.”
