MANY frequent travellers have been left disheartened by the UK lockdown, meaning holidays abroad have been banned.
However, one up-side to not travelling means being able to avoid rude passengers while flying.
Travelling on commercial flights often brings with it rude, dirty or downright disgusting seat companions when sealed in a small cabin with strangers.
Over the years, social media users have shamed the worst people they have experienced along the way.
Here are some of the most horrifying experiences from up in the air.
A mum sparked disgust online after she was caught trimming the toenails of her kid during a flight.
In the picture, the woman had her child on her lap and was hunched over him while clipping his nails in public.
Instead of going to the toilets on the plane, she chose to do it mid-flight in her seat.
Dirty underwear in the aisle
A passenger decided to leave their dirty underwear in the middle of the aisle after leaving the plane when it landed.
The pink undergarments, appeared to have been worn, and looked grubby and old.
How they ended up there remains a mystery, however, with the culprit remaining unknown.
A couple were slammed for their raunchy behaviour after a woman was caught straddling her partner during a flight.
The amorous pair decided to get cosy as they kissed while the female passenger had her legs around the man sitting in the window seat.
In the picture, the woman leans over her partner while holding onto the back of his seat while he grips onto her hips on the busy flight.
Drying wet socks
A gross passenger was shamed after they were caught drying their “sweaty socks” using the overhead air vents during a flight.
The traveller was spotted holding up the sock above their head while on the plane.
It isn’t clear whether they were sweaty or wet – although the smell would have been awful either way.
Bag full of wee
A passenger left other travellers horrified after they left a bag full of wee tied to their plane seat.
The see-through plastic bag was filled with the yellow liquid, quite obviously showing what it was.
It was then tied to the seat pocket of a flight, with a rogue slipper also left behind with it.
A man was caught brushing his teeth in his seat during a flight.
Looking away from the camera, he has a toothbrush in his mouth as he cleans his teeth.
It isn’t clear where or how he spat the toothpaste out afterwards, although many hoped it wasn’t on the tray table and he went to the toilet instead.
Burst blood blister
Passengers were splattered with blood after a woman’s foot blister popped mid-flight.
Two men were reportedly left with blood on them, which also hit the walls and the window of the plane.
All three travellers were forced to leave the plane.
Picking dead foot skin
Plane passengers were left disgusted after a man was filmed picking skin off his feet during a flight.
The stomach-churning video showed the passenger use his pinkie finger to scratch his heel – with bits of skin flaking off onto the ground.
The man, who appeared to be wearing a cap, seemed to be unaware of his surroundings as he did it.
Plane passengers are even giving themselves beauty treatments in the cabin, from nail painting to fake eyelashes.
One woman was spotted sitting on the floor while her friend did her make-up mid-flight.
Another traveller put her hair in rollers while in her seat, while a couple were caught squeezing each others spots.
