Another airline passenger shamed for shoving feet through armrests

It’s happened again. Again. Yet another person’s space has been invaded on a flight by naked feet poking through the armrests.

User Craftiest shared an image on Reddit of a pair of feet emerging from behind his seat on an airplane. One on either side. The toes are painted fuschia polish, and the legs – they’re extended enough that you can see the legs, yes – are covered with vinyl leggings.


Redditors had many questions about this latest incident, including wondering if the poster said anything, where the flight was, and what happened next.

Craftiest followed up his original post with more information, writing, “So a few more details: It was a Singapore Airlines flight from Manila to Singapore.  It was a Boeing 777…Unfortunately I do not have a foot fetish to take advantage of the situation.”

As to what happened? It ended pretty simply. “I was talking to my seat neighbour when it happened. We cracked up about it as it was so unbelievable, took some photos (because you do, for Reddit! haha). We turned around, she was passed out. But we nudged them far enough to not see them. I put my cushion in the gap, and fell asleep myself all the way to landing.”

You may recall, back in July, on a JetBlue flight from Long Beach to San Francisco passenger Jessie Char encountered the worst kind of airline seatmate — a pair of feet.

“I noticed one of the armrests collapse and so I looked over only to see a foot emerge from the row behind me,” Char told People of the incident. “It was writhing around on one armrest and there was a significant amount of toe wiggling.”

And, while this kind of behavior is pretty rude (don’t do this, it’s really unsanitary), some of the blame would seem to lie with the airlines, whose shrinking seats over the past decade have left passengers cramped and uncomfortable. It’s gotten so bad that the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C., has ordered aviation regulators to consider setting minimum standards for the space airlines give passengers.
