Is This the Worst Thing You’ve Ever Seen in First Class?

Is This the Worst Thing You’ve Ever Seen in First Class?
Jackie Reddy

A couple was snapped playing a rather public game of footsie while traveling in the first class cabin on a recent American Airlines flight. The images, which were shared online by fellow passenger Laura Lake, show the pair stroking their feet together in apparent obliviousness to other travelers.

A couple traveling in the first class cabin on a recent American Airlines flight were snapped playing a game of footsie by one of their rather annoyed fellow passengers, The Sun reports. The images, which have been shared online, were taken by traveler Laura Lake and appear to show the couple pressing and stroking their feet together.

Captioning the series of images, Lake wrote, “First class seat- $1000. Too many drinks in the airport before boarding- $100. Ointment to cure WHATEVER their feet will have after using restrooms barefoot- $20. Passing out after playing what she thought was a sexy game of footsie over the first class divider wall …… priceless!”.

However, the couple’s encounter appears to have been something of an annoyance to those around them. Lake, whose comments on social media were quoted by the outlet, said, “Guy in seat in front NOT impressed when she finished by resting her feet over his television! #passengershaming”.

    First off, how is she resting her feet on the television of the passenger in front of her? Surely her legs aren’t that long…
    Secondly, while I wouldn’t personally do this, so what? This passenger is clearly going out of their way to look at them. If these feat are so offensive, why do you make such an effort to watch it? Some passengers put their bare feet all over the seat area on these seats. Bring some disinfectant wipes with you and wipe your seat down when you board if this bothers you. But if it is any sort of health concern, you should be more bothered by people holding hands and touching hands on surfaces, as hands have far more germs than feet. If looking at it makes you uncomfortable, don’t look. It’s just like judging people for their attire. If it is so bothersome to you, just turn away and mind your own business. These people aren’t hurting anybody so just chill out and enjoy your flight.

    Certainly not the worst thing. And gosh, if you got such a problem with it, then just look the other way: the view out the window is pretty stunning from an airplane (so I’ve heard).

    Footsie doesn’t bother me, but the idea of going into an airplane bathroom barefoot and then putting said feet on anything another person might touch – ewwwwwwwww! Lysol for sure!

    It’s disgusting, but not the worst thing ever in first class. However, I’d hate to see what the “get over it” crowd does at home that they consider “no big deal”…

    I miss the days when trashy people like that traveled by bus if they traveled at all.

    C’mon!!! Lighten up. I have a pillow fight with my spouse everytime we sit upfront. It brings smiles and laughter to everybody around us. Spread joy, not misery.
