Plane travel can be a long and tiring process, but it can also be an opportunity to relax and get some sleep in between destinations. However, all too often passengers find themselves sharing a cabin with fellow fliers whose behaviour is deemed annoying or rude.
One such instance happened when a plane passenger noticed the woman in front of them doing something they thought was quite bizarre.
The video, which was shared to Instagram account @PassengerShaming, is filmed from the row behind and captures the behaviour of the passenger in front through the gap between the seat and the wall.
In the footage, a woman’s hand can be seen holding a mobile phone.
While the phone is not an uncommon sight, what is happening on the phone screen has caught the attention of the passenger behind.
Flights: The passenger was caught on video taking selfies
It appears the lady in front is taking videos of herself with a filter which appears to give her deer antlers.
The video has amassed 383,461 views at present, with 319 commenters rushing to share their opinion on the incident.
“I don't get the people that spend so much time taking pictures of themselves,” commented one viewer.
Another added: “Bwahaha, there's nothing more awkward when watching someone, as when they are watching themselves….”
A third said: “If you are in public you better be ready for the public.”
A lot of people who saw the video ranted about how annoying taking selfies in public is.
One person recounted a recent experience they had, writing: “I’ve seen this in action before.
“I watched this girl at dinner live-streaming herself just making weird faces into the camera for 30 minutes straight while people commented. It was awkward.”
Another vented: “And you wonder why we have a deluded generation of millennials who think perfection is reality while being vain and bonkers is the norm.”
However, there were plenty of people in support of the passenger.
“This is stupid. She’s just taking a selfie and not hurting anyone,” argued one viewer.
Another said: “I think the person filming should be ashamed for being nosey. You don’t look at other people’s screens! Let alone record that.”
A third added: “She's minding her own business, how about you mind your own?”
Others found a silver lining in the whole scenario, pointing out that it was better than bare feet.
Feet seem to be a constant gripe of passengers on planes, with plenty of people baring their toes for the rest of the cabin while they get comfortable.
Recently a woman was shamed for resting her naked feet up against the plane wall, sharing them for the entire cabin to see.
Passengers described the scene as “sickening".
