The feeling is hard to forget. You’re settling into your seat, getting comfy, you see the passenger everyone is taking caution of praying that their seat isn’t assigned next to you. Then they plop down next to you and then the nightmare begins. No matter how often you fly, which class you’re sitting in, and how long the duration of the flight is, chances are you have probably experienced that annoying flight passenger at least once in your life.
Traveling in the presence of someone who is either snoring loudly, invading personal space or traveling with a real live turkey can make the flight feel almost impossible to endure. When these things happen and you’re stuck thousands of feet in the air, there’s very little you can do to control the situation. Regardless of the commuting tragedies you’ve had to deal with, we hope they weren’t as bad as the misfortunes these travelers decided to share with us.
