Stinky People Are the Most Hated Passengers on the Plane, Survey Shows

A recent survey by travel search site Skyscanner revealed that the people who smell, those with a body odour are the most disliked travel companions in a plane. Overweight passengers that occupy more than personal space are the second thing people dislike in a plane, followed by drunks and babies and children.

Others to make the top 10 of undesirable seat buddies were very chatty people, nervous flyers and amorous couples.

Are these reasons surprising? Not really, I’d say, for indeed a smelly person is awful regardless of the place you have to stay next to him/her. And a longer flight, maybe a transoceanic one, is definitely a long and very uncomfortable and not nice journey if you are close to such a un-deodorised person. Not being able to feel comfortable and have your space invaded is another very understandable reason to dislike a person – and, I’d add that it doesn’t have to be an overweight person, it is sufficient to be someone who simply extends over the own space. Staying close to a drunk person is also an unpleasant experience.

Babies and children are cute, funny etc. But when they cry and cry and parents ignore them and don’t make them stop crying and shouting they are not so cure and funny at all! And yes, I have a baby, but no, I don’t like other kids screaming loud, and I also don’t let my kid crying and disturb other people, no matter where we are.

“When other people are around you need to be considerate and think about personal hygiene, and perhaps not drinking too much either before or during a flight,” said Dave Boyte, from Skyscanner.

“I’ve been fortunate in that I’ve never had to sit next to anyone with bad body odour, but I’ve been next to a very chatty person, which wasn’t such a bad thing actually”, added Mr Boyte.

    When I flew Emirates so many of the passengers had bad B.O. It was so bad, I asked to shift seats! Their TV advertisement says it all… only hippies fly Emirates! So, even if it costs more, I’ll fly Singapore, Malaysian and even Chinese airlines before I get on another Emirates flight! Having said that my wife just flew SIA and had to endure a passenger behind her who had bad BO. I notice in the USA that when passengers complain they kick the person off the flight! One tip I can give the airlines is… please do not turn up the cabin temperature and hand out more blankets instead !!!!!!!!!!!!

She did not finish high school, and while traveling in the United States with her family at age 19, she decided to strike off on her own. She won a design contest in Harper’s Bazaar Magazine and then began working for Tina Lesser as a sketcher and model. Over the next 20 years, she worked for various companies such as Ben Reig, Juniorite, Dan Keller, Rhea Manufacturing and Jonathan Logan, where she worked for 16 years as the designer of the Youth Guild Division. In 1976, she went on to found her own clothing company, Liz Claiborne Inc.In the 1970s, women were entering the professional workforce in ever increasing numbers and the fashion industry was not meeting their needs. As a working woman herself, Claiborne understood the desire for functional, attractive professional clothes made for women that were affordable but not of inferior quality. Rather than create women’s suits modified from men’s designs, Claiborne designed a line of feminine, stylish separates and office friendly sportswear. Therefore, in addition to being more affordable and easy to care for, her range of clothes were also designed to work together so that a few pieces could make up a multitude of different looks.Liz Claiborne in talks to sell Mexx
