Survey reveals the most irritating air passengers

    Everyone has their personal bugbears when it comes to fellow air passengers – but there are some irritating traits that all travellers agree on.

    Top of that most irritating air passengers list is body odour, according to research by flight search website Just the Flight.

    A survey of 5,000 people found that the most hated person on a flight was the smelly person, with 59 per cent of respondents rounding on “poor levels of basic hygiene”.

    Next on the list of the “21 passengers we hate in flights” was the seat kicker, bemoaned by 54 per cent of people, then parents “unwilling to acknowledge their children’s awful behaviour” in at third, with 53 per cent.
