There will always be a 'bad' passenger in every trip. Some maybe fully aware that they are disturbing the peace of some of their co-passengers, while others are simply not aware of it. Most of the disturbance caused by passengers are because of their own personal habits that either they can't control or they are not aware of it. As the holidays creep in, here are some of the types of offenders - and how not to join the club of contemptible.

The carry-on culprit advises for you to look up your airline's baggage limits for carry-on - they differ depending on the airline - by finding your airline's baggage policy. Then take a gander at the weight/dimension limits for checked bags, which tend to be more generous.

Social Shaming

In the event of an in-flight disturbance, 49 percent of the surveyed said they would "sit quietly and attempt to ignore them." Twenty-one percent said they would confront the misbehaving passenger directly. A small 10 percent said they would record the situation on their phone-but only three percent admitted that they would actually publish the footage on social media.

The olfactory idiot

It's not just what you eat; it also can be what you spray. "Don't spray perfume at your seat," Masini wrote. "What you think is inoffensive isn't to others." Some fliers are extremely sensitive to anything perfumed, so maybe skip your scent the day of your flight.

Quiet, Please

When it comes to small talk, Americans are torn. According to, Sixteen percent shared that they see air travel as an opportunity to meet and talk to new people. But 66 percent of surveyed fliers "dread" getting seated next to said conversationalists.

The space case

You want to tilt your seat back? Ask the person behind you. Do a little research ahead of time ( to find out how much pitch your plane has - the distance from a point on your seat to the same point on the seat in front.
