One of the biggest faux pas in travel is putting your feet up on the plane’s bulkhead, or on the seat in front of you. Even worse is bare feet. Worse still a passenger clipping their toenails during diner service.
Still I’m strangely fascinated by a business class passenger who flew Delta from Turks & Caicos to New York JFK on Monday evening, February 14.
Here you see the passenger with feet up on the bulkhead. So far so good (bad). But where it really gets interesting is the dexterity with which they used their feet to control the seat back entertainment system. A reader took video of this skill, and I can’t look away.
If there’s ever been a good argument for American Airlines’ decision to remove seat back entertainment screens, this has to be it. Now that airlines aren’t cleaning planes as much anymore as they say you have no idea whose feet were on the screen in front of you on the last flight.
