First Class Riff-Raff on LAX-BOS

I just arrived from LAX after an interesting trip. A couple were the last to board the full flight from LAX to BOS and asked me to move as they wanted to sit together. I said no as I like to rest my head on the window to sleep. They were not impressed with my answer implying that I was being rude for not moving. Anyway - later in the flight I could not help but notice that one of them had his feet almost on top of the head of the passenger in front. I took a picture



Anyway - the passenger in front turned around and wacked his feet off his head, who then fell to the floor but he did not wake up. Once he was on the floor, his partner turned sideways and stretched her feet over to the other seat. The flight attendants attempted to wake them up over a period of about 5 minutes. Finally they woke up and sat up.

Ah - the joys of red eye flights.

I saw the title and thought I was going to be reading something by a DYKWIA, looking down their nose! But, you are right! riff-raff!

I imagine the unfortunate passenger sitting in front looked up to adjust the air vent, thinking “why does it suddenly smell like a gym locker in here?”

just goes to show that "1st" class is not about where you sit, but how you
behave

I've experienced the same (as in the passenger in the front seat). While my utensils might contort, I don't.

At least there's socks on the feet. My wife had a guy using the sidewall/back of seat as a footrest for his sandal feet coming back from PVR. Apparently forgot to take a bath before coming in from the beach that morning.

I'd rather have that then when the feet occasionally come between the seats and end up on my arm rest.
