One time, sitting in F (I forget the airplane, but it was a narrow-body), a passenger behind me put his smelly feet -- in socks, shoes removed -- on the back side of the center armrest between my seat and my neighbor.

I accidentally spilled some water (PDB) down the armrest during takeoff. Problem solved.

I've gotten feet on my armrest in F multiple times. Last time it happened, dude was offended when I told him to move them.

Raised by wolves.

Orange juice would have been a better choice.

I believe you forgot the quotes on "accidentally"

As this seems to be a generic discussion of air travelers' misplaced feet, will move this to TravelBuzz to share will the larger community.

It was on WN I think.
Pilot came back, saw three people with feet up on the bulkhead, said "Excuse me, can you please take your feet down? This is my workplace. Would you sit like that in someone's office? Thanks."
It worked.

I'd buy that pilot a beer. Not in flight though.

Somehow I've seen this happening way more often on LH than at other airlines. Here is my story:

I get the bare feet thing, yuk. I also get the F class feet on the arm rest thing, yuk.

But whats the big deal with putting shoe or sock covered feet on the bulkhead? It's not like you eat off of it.

I don't really mind if someone puts their covered feet on the bulkhead.

I mind if they put their feet on my armrest. But in their own space, who cares? (Other than the pilot. If they say something, listen.).
