My No.1 Pet Peeve on a flight

I have finally found my No.1 Pet Peeve on flights. With the amount of miles I have clocked, I guess I have been tolerating a pretty number of unacceptable travel etiquette but I don't know why that in my recent flight from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur, I finally found something about myself.

I.HATE.PDA.IN.FLIGHTS

Before you get me wrong, I am nothing against Public Display of Affection (PDA) but what I am against is when it's done excessively. While you couples are on a honeymoon mood traveling around the world, please mind that there are hundreds of others who are on the same flight and someone sitting beside you on the same row!

In any flights, space is precious and its often tight and shared with so many others. Therefore, I appreciate that any passengers on board should know how to respect others. Before I make myself sound like a miserable-single-almost-30's-lady on frequent business travel, let me clarify what I meant by excessive PDA. 

My flight from Singapore was delayed by an hour and this had somehow irritated me. And then came this couple, in their early 30's who was occupying the middle and window seat while I was seated at the aisle seat. At first they were just holding hands, then they went on and play with each others' hair and face. Of course there's some kissing going on and then they proceed to playing "rock-paper-scissors" game and when someone looses, he/she gets punished. They rocked my seat too when they laughed. Excuse me, do you know you're rocking my seat and I am trying to get some nap time?!!

After that the lady had her head lying on the guy's thighs. It's just like she's sleeping on his lap and he is brushing her hair and patting her back. OMG, please spare me of this sight. Not everyone has the privilege of flying Business Class you know?!! Even the aunty across the aisle seat was staring at them. 


All I wanted to say is that for anyone on a commercial flight, you can kiss your partner but passionate kisses should only be done in confined areas and not in a confined economy class cabin! Keep your hands off areas-you-know-where and don't cause discomfort to other passengers. This is to me a general travel etiquette and every passenger should understand! Grrrr.....

P/S: I've had 10 flights to catch these 3 weeks. Wish me luck!

luckily i haven't experienced this kinda PDA on flight. but if it really does happen, free show, i don't mind haha

Sean said...

heh, there might be a way to counter this. take a video of them with your phone. and when they ask you what you're doing, say you wanna post it on youtube. although hmmm, maybe better not, it'd probably cause an argument...
