Fnork! That was enough to make this lowly FO laugh (as I'm required to do).

She had normal use of her arms and hands. She did have an infant with her. she took off her sandals. And placed her feet on the wall. Then she started working through the AVOD menu.

Common sense, common courtesy, and just plain old common sense seem to be lacking here... I agree with ALL of you who say we need a "common" thread to post these types of things on, as a sticky or consolidated thread... Whatever works best... Disgusting... Where do some people learn manners????

You could (and should) still wash yours out of courtesy to the rest of us, rather than wiping them on a surface everyone touches in all of their unwashed glory.

I love these. They have them in many of the Skyclubs now.

Would be hard to put on a jet plus I always use my hand towel to open the latch and open the door then toss it out as I leave. I am sure others do as well.

Wife and I also do the "wipe" of the IFE controller and all else we can reach. Guess I need to "windex" the entire seat now. How do I do that with only 3 OZ I ask you. Oh the humanity of it all...

Well, if they serve PDBs you could just wash the seat down with some Woodfords.

So is this any place to put your shoes in BE for 8 hrs across the pond?

Wait, is it me or is the same guy not wearing anything waist down.

+1 Here!!! I either use the towel to open the door (then sometimes have to hold the door with my foot while tossing the towel), or I do it the sneaky way: wash my hands for an exceedingly long time until someone else leaves the restroom, then I quickly follow behind before the door closes!

But I'm also not the kind of person to wipe down shopping cart handles or AVOD controllers with sanitary wipes like I often see people do. One of my coworkers even wipes down everything in a new hotel room, including phone handles and remote controls. I make sure to wash my hands after using the restroom and before eating, but I figure a few extra germs here or there is good for my immune system. We don't want those white blood cells getting complacent and lazy now.

Not that I don't have my own hangups of course! People performing personal grooming in public places I consider to the worst offenses. I don't need to see you flossing in a public bathroom, or clipping your finger or toe nails. Or smelly food on an airplane. I'd much rather have a guy with his bare feet up than a guy eating something strong smelling sitting next to me. Yuck!

AF gives a shoe bag, EK has a hold all where one can put shoes in, well, on the 380 at least. These are far from the only airlines that supply something to carry shoes. It has always amazed me that DL BE supplies nothing.

Of course, taking off ones shoes doesn't mean keeping them off to walk around in!

Maybe this pic should be forwarded to the CEO to give him a hint that the amenity kit is missing a couple of things?
