'Passenger Shaming': Cabin Crew Slagging Off People On Instagram

Beware, they ain't pretty


We often hear about rowdy passengers grounding planes because of their outlandish behaviour, or celebrities calling a member of crew a 'basic bitch' on board, but we don't get to see the harmless, often boring, day-to-day goings on. Until now…


Surreptitious cabin crew are taking pictures of passengers and uploading them to Instagram using hastags such as #crewlife #passengershaming and #bringingbacktheglamour.

On the one hand, it might seem a bit, well, unprofessional – as a traveller, you're putting your safety and comfort in these people's hands, and the last thing you expect is to be unknowingly mocked at 30,000ft.

But on the other, the photos are pretty damn funny – and some of their subjects really rather gross. Here are some of the most shocking…


Hands up if you hold onto to something when you sleep – a teddy bear, your crotch, your boob. This guy knows.

Getting comfy in economy is naaaht easy. Hello, crick in the neck. This guy found his groove, though.


As did this girl

But the inflight entertainment is something we very much look forward to, unless the woman in front of you chooses to cover your screen with her ponytail – because why wouldn't you want to hang your hair over the back of your headrest?

If you get an entire row all to yourself, spread the hell out. Go on, undo that top button, too – no one's looking. Oh wait…

It's a nightmare when you're desperate for a wee but can't use the toilets because the seatbelt sign is on, but do not, under any circumstances, urinate in a clear plastic bag, like this human did.

And we'll just leave you with this one..
