    24 People Who Shouldn’t Be Allowed To Have Feet

    Where’s the air marshal when you need them?

    The International Air Transport Association (IATA) is a trade association that helps establish standards and policies for most major airlines. Here's their definition of an "unruly or disruptive passenger":

    1. This person is definitely failing to "respect the rules of conduct":

    Not looking forward to sharing the armrest with this... #passengershaming

    2. Looks a lot like "disturbing good order" to me:

    @WestJet how would you tell him that this is gross? He is on the same flight as Gregg Saretsky! #passengershaming

    3. My safety would certainly feel compromised in this situation:

    Hey that's a great pedicure, thanks for sharing! Now get it off my armrest. #passengershaming #plane #travel… https://t.co/6jQ3Q9871m

    4. I'm no lawyer, but acts like these "may or do jeopardize the safety of the aircraft," in my opinion:

    OTD four years ago. (BOS-LAX) #passengershaming

    5. And harm "persons or property therein."

    LAX-NRT $450 fare but feelin for guy in 19A whos got this unsupervsd kid in 19B #passengershaming @united ua33… https://t.co/ny7XGhIuee

    6. Not sure if this counts as "intimidation or threat, whether physical or verbal," but it certainly feels aggressive:

    #passengershaming Say hello to my toe 😤

    7. This must "interfere with the performance of the duties of the crew members," right?

    From our last flight... Unless this dude was using toe Braille, this is unacceptable. @PassengerShame… https://t.co/KJXzWLDOGm

    8. And it absolutely " lessens the ability of the crew members to perform those duties."

    9. At the very least, we can make a case for this "intentionally causing damage to, or destruction of, property."

    Keep your stinky feet to yourselves please ... #passengershaming #travel #airlines https://t.co/EeRlOkhRLc

    10. Or maybe as a "physical confrontation with crew members or other passengers."

    Oh hell no. #flyingfeet #passengershaming

    11. At the very least, this could be considered "other type of riotous behavior."

    Eww get those outta here! #passengershaming @RenesPoints

    12. What are the consequences of this behavior? Well, "trauma to passengers and crew" sounds about right.

    This is exactly what I want to see for the next 4hrs... #passengershaming

    13. And "trauma resulting in crew member illness or absenteeism" because who'd want to sit next to this for an entire flight:

    Dear society, Writing to let you know that this is unacceptable & gross. Regards, Normal People #PassengerShaming

    14. This could certainly cause "diversions and delays."

    Pantyhose feet = barefeet. Gross. Going back to be a long 13 hour flight. #passengershaming

    15. And "negative publicity."

    It must be this flight! More crusty feet for the return home. #passengershaming https://t.co/5m3TogsqFC

    16. But aside from the IATA regulations, there's more at stake here: basic human decency.

    Creepy-crusty feet #passengershaming https://t.co/dLWxFr2Ozo

    17. Call me old-fashioned, but I think we should all be able to get through a flight without having to touch a stranger's bare feet.

    18. Or smell them.

    OK guys, here it is. #DONTHATEME #passengershaming #flyingfeet #ihatepeople @instagram: https://t.co/tShxiuDvtv

    19. Or even just look at them, really.

    No.. No. NO and no.. #passengershaming @passengershaming

    20. We don't need the Tokyo Convention of 1963 to help prevent something like this from happening:

    Odvratno. #passengershaming Više o ovom pročitajte na https://t.co/wFP9uVK9Vz

    21. Or the Montreal Protocol of 2014 to ensure our comfort and safety aboard a commercial flight...

    22. We just need to remind ourselves to be aware of our surroundings...

    23. And to be considerate of other people... to really respect one another's space...

    24. You know what? Forget it. I'm getting the air marshal.
