List Rules Upvote the people who bother you the most on planes

Whenever you board a plane, you hope that everything runs smoothly. Of course, that means safety, but it also means not having to deal with the many types of obnoxious, selfish people that all somehow pile on to your particular flight when we all wish that they were were private jet owners. The wide variety of awful people come in various shapes and forms and can range from adults to toddlers. That said, this list points out the bottom of the barrel when it comes to air travel, and believe us, there are A LOT of people who fit these stereotypes. Yes, there are a few more of these people that could have made this list, but these frequent flyers can truly ruin your traveling experience.

Who are the worst people on every flight? That's up to you to decide, since different things anger different people. Take a look and upvote the people who manage to bother you the most.

Gross! Imagine sitting next to someone who reeks of B.O. for an entire flight. Even if it is a short haul, your appetite will be ruined by this oblivious fool.

This person sets off a chain reaction that catches everyone in his or her vertical row off-guard. Once the first guy leans back, it causes both physical and psychological discomfort for the person behind him - especially if there's a drink or open laptop on their tray.
