    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...
