All the World’s a Stage! 10 Types of People on a Flight

The Crying Kids

Yes, kids are innocent and all…but they’re not always cute! Once the flight takes off, these innocent imps can make life a living hell with their tears and screams.


The Toilet Goers

Some flyers seem to have a continuous bonding with the toilets! Doesn’t matter if the seat-belts are ‘ON’ or ‘OFF’, they can only be found near the toilets.

The First Timers

Have you ever sat next to a first-time flyer? If yes, you must be quite well-versed with their silly rounds of questions, their nervous jitters during even a mild turbulence!


The Bookworms

These are the quiet ones; throughout the journey, they remain glued to some book. And if they are finished with that mid-way, the safety manual seems to be a bestseller to them!


The Stinkers

Some have smelling feet, some have a smelling armpit. There’s really nothing to do here but keep some nose clips ready!

The Selfie Obsessed

Whether getting coffee from the air-hostesses, in the toilet, near the cock-pit or even getting on or off from the flight, they just can’t get by without taking selfies and annoying everybody around them!

The Sleeping Beauties (or Beasts!)

From take-off to landing, these people just like to finish their last night’s sleep. They are also quite humble – irrespective of whose shoulder it is, they will always take it as their own!


The Snorers

If you are a frequent flyer, you know that there are the sleepers, and then, there are the snorers. Needless to say, these are the ones who usually sleep with their ‘NOSE’ wide open and are a disturbance to others.

The Chatterboxes

The chatterboxes, or blabbers, are peculiar people, to say the least. They love to pass their time with a discussion on food, politics, neighbours – at a loud pitch!

The Foodies

These are the ones who actually like the food served on flights, and ask for extra servings. These are, usually, also the ones who are carrying bags and bags of chips, sodas, and candies with them.


Which ones do you find most annoying or the most easy-going?
