The material (Tedlar) covering the two sections of bulkhead alone costs in the region of £30k per wall... but of course some oafscant see past the end of their nose.

Probably the only item of clothing I can remove without showing anything - easy to take off without anyone noticing, I couldnít imagine doing that on a plane though

What is the etiquette re: feet on flatbeds? Bare? With own socks? With BA socks? With shoes?

My personal etiquette is socks, however my socks never touch the floor as I put my slip-ons/sandals on each time I stand or sit up. However, when in long-haul economy I have no problem with taking my shoes off and putting my socked feet on the bulkhead, so take my opinion as you see fit.

Iím not as bothered by it as some people on here, but my general opinion is socked is fine. Certainly preferred over shoes or bare. Always shoes in the toilet. I tend to wear my laceless Converse slip ons when Iím flying so itís easy enough to take on / off. Not a fan of feet on the bulkhead (socked or otherwise) but not bothered enough to tell someone to stop doing it. Feet on tray tables (socked or otherwise) is unnecessary but Iíve never encountered it personally.

I hope the corner of the tray caught him inbetween the legs.
Darn shame we didn't occur a rejected take-off at max speed, indeed... The airline doesn't give a rats butt as, directly after taking the picture i vented it to them and they had no comment.

what exactly did they say? And was there any inkling that they were like ďwhat does it matter to you?Ē? Iím intrigued as to how some crew would act in that situation

One can only surmise what slobs like that do at home. I have seen people without the benefit of shoes or socks take themselves off and use the toilet. I do not care whether people have shoes or socks - I do not want to see them. As for the bare feet, that is simply disgusting. It is not a beach, it is the shared cabin of an aeroplane.

I deal with spread-everywheres, but putting my stuff on top of theirs when I need to. If they wished to take issue, they would have come to the right shop. This is how society is today, you can pay to sit in a Class when you have none yourself.
When I'm flying in F or CW, the cabin is often uncomfortably warm and one of the few options (after asking to have the temperature cooled) is to change into shorts and remove my socks. I of course would never visit the toilet without either BA's socks or my socks and shoes. Do cabin crew and others really find this offensive (my feet generally don't have an odor). If so, I would suggest that cabin temperatures be kept exceptionally cool so that no one is tempted to remove their socks.

The solution for not having people put their shoes on the bulkheads is pretty obvious... add more legroom. In general I find my shoes touch the magazine holder (e.g. the very bottom of the bulkhead) and I'm below average in height.

Hmm... people are of course entitled to post anything they wish (within the known limits which are fully respected here) on FT, but for what it's worth, I find that whole array of 'shaming' photos rather morbid. Do they depict behaviours which I would rather not see? Absolutely. To be honest, however, I don't see what they add to the discussion. I think all of us have enough experience of flying and enough imagination to know exactly what is referred to if anyone wants to discuss whether people should refrain from putting their shoes on the bulkhead, picking their bare toes in the lounge or leaving bras on seats, all of which are perfectly interesting questions, in my personal view without a need for visual illustration or shaming the culprits.

I do this as soon as I get to my seat on all my flights. At that time I also open the tray table to clean it. If I'm in Business, I also use the hot towel provided to give everything an extra cleaning.
