The Travel with Kids forum on FT is full of tips on how to do exactly that. Your fellow passengers will thank you.

Do it in cold weather — or use an underwater camera in a pool.

Not disgusting to me at all.


Remember, the lounge is a waiting room, not a country club.

You should have asked her if she saw your pillow, then tell her how it helps "muffle" gas.

If you put your filthy shoes on my furniture at home or work, you would be kindly asked to remove them or leave. It is disgusting. What the hell do you walk in? The puddles on the floor below the urinals at the LAX SC are bad enough.

Get some etiquette training.

People who visit my home are encouraged to put their feet on my coffee table

I don't have photographic evidence because this happened way too fast, and I hope I'm not the only one that thinks it's disgusting.

a few days ago, LGA-ATL I was upgraded to F. After I sat down, in comes this guy in a t-shirt, a bit out of breath. Obviously, he was running since he was sweating. He stows his luggage, sits down, and the FA comes around to hand out the hot towels to everyone. I use mine and then see him wipe his hands with his towel, his face, and then proceeded to shove the towel into his shirt to wipe his UNDERARMS.

Of course, I then wondered if Delta reuses these towels and if the one in my hands had been on someone's underarms before. Yes, I know the towels are sterilized, but still...

As gross as that is... Many people, including myself, use the towel to wipe down the tray tables, etc. i am sure the germ levels are pretty well matched.

Don't get me wrong, that is a bit gross, and classless

You probably shouldn't use hotel washcloths. Those go places far worse than armpits...

So, you believe they never launder these towels, eh?
