Who knows you might form bonds with someone you meet on a plane that may last a lifetime. But described ahead are those individuals who make the few hours you spend sitting next to them, extremely excruciating.

If you're unfortunate, this person will be sitting next to you. These people get so comfortable on a plane that they just fail to realize the plight others face due to the stink bombs their feet release.

On some unlucky days, they manage to put their malodorous feet on the armrest of your seat, just in case your nostrils weren't filled up with the stench.

The Tinkler
You know how crammed it can get if you're flying economy and you get an aisle seat next to a tinkler. Those are travelers who want a window seat every time they travel; these species seem to have a really tiny bladder and need to pee every half an hour.

Air travel for first time can be scary and exciting for some. It's fine to show your nervousness, excitement but screaming as plane takes off is too much.

One cabin luggage is not enough. There may be a purse, a backpack, handbag. As they stuff and cram the luggage in the compartment; people wonder if they have entire household as luggage.

All a vessel crammed with people flying at 30,000 feet above sea level needs is a crying, screaming, howling, kicking baby.
The Crying Baby
Just in case people weren't getting enough sleep, the soothing voice of a howling baby would definitely make them snooze.

Bored out of their wits, they climbed on every seat possible, did a few acrobatic stunts on them, dismantled a seat just to see what it is made of and managed to throw peas at other passengers at lunch time. All in all, making sure that they're well occupied.

These are blessed travelers who give in to the sweet embrace of slumber once the plane has taken off.
This shouldn't be much of a problem except for the fact that their head has landed on their co-passenger's (your) shoulder. Limiting your movements to a bare minimum.

These are an excessively over-sharing bunch of individuals. They want to share almost every life experience, funny stories, and personal details, with you not being interested is not an option.
