IT should come as no surprise that some travellers have bad habits that others find disgusting.
But a viral video has shown just how gross people can be, even in public.
In a clip shared by author Alafair Burke, a male passenger was seen sitting in the bulkhead seat of a plane.
At first it seems like he’s just got his feet up against the dividing wall between cabins, also known as the bulkhead – already a bug bear for some passengers.
But as the footage plays on, the passenger is seen using his feet to repeatedly swipe through the in-flight entertainment system, before putting his feet back on the wall in front of him.
Alafair said that the footage was sent to her by a friend who didn’t have Twitter.
She wrote: “My friend who doesn’t have twitter sent this from her flight. It belongs on Twitter.”
Since posting the video yesterday, the short clip has already garnered almost five million views, with many disgusted by the passenger’s behaviour.
Many said they suddenly understood why Naomi Campbell wiped down her entire plane seat, referencing another viral video by the supermodel.
Initially people were so shocked by the mystery flyer’s behaviour that they thought he might not have had the use of his arms.
Alafair was forced to explain that the passenger had appeared to be able-bodied but just used his feet for the in-fight entertainment.

But it’s far from the first time that passengers’ feet antics have horrified other travellers.
Just earlier this year, a woman was seen with her feet on another passenger’s head rest.
Another couple disgusted first class passengers by playing footsie cross seat dividers.
There was even the passenger who gave another woman a pedicure while she apparently slept.
