A recently released etiquette study examined passenger behaviors that most infuriate airline passengers. Here is a rundown compiled by the Expedia.

The Expedia study asked feedback from 1,005 Americans with age ranging from 18 and above. The Rear Seat Kicker was the most annoying passenger behavior to encounter while on board, according to CNN. It has garnered 64 percent from those questioned. Inattentive Parents ranked second as the most annoying passenger behavior with 50 percent of those asked irritated by parents who have no control over or pay no attention at all to their crying or misbehaved children.

Aromatic passengers those with low hygiene or wearing excessive perfume or cologne ranked as the third most annoying passenger behavior with 55 percent hating it. In addition, Audio Insensitive irritates 49 percent of the subject. These are annoying passenger behavior where a person talks loudly or listens to music without considering their fellow passenger. The unsettling Boozer received the same 49 percent as the fifth most annoying passenger behavior when on a plane.

At rank six of the most annoying passenger behavior is the Chatty Cathy. This is your seatmate who lights up a conversation and do not want to stop 40 percent of American fliers disliked these kinds of passengers. The Seat-Back Guy got 35 percent and ranked seventh most annoying passenger behavior. This is when a passenger reclines his seat fully as soon as the plane takes off. Although 53 percent of the passengers choose to recline their seat, 27 percent admitted that they would opt to have reclining seats entirely banned or at least restricted.

Meanwhile, only fewer than three percent Americans admit to having been physically intimate with another person on board. However, 28 percent expressed disapproval towards these passionate passengers and found this as one of the most annoying passenger behavior on the plane, says, Daily Mail.
