A plane passenger sparked outrage online after a photo of her long hair draped over the back of her seat went viral. The picture showed her locks draped down onto the tray table of the passenger seated behind.

There is a certain etiquette followed during a flight while sitting in cramped seats alongside strangers. It includes sharing the armrests, using earphones to watch movies or listen to music, and trying not to intrude on another person's mental or physical space as much as possible. A recent photo shared on Twitter showed an unidentified woman sitting in the seat in front with her long dark hair draped over the top of the headrest, cascading down the back to the tray table meant for the passenger behind.

“Would this piss you off," wrote Twitter user Anthony, who goes by the handle @Antman0528, on Wednesday, October 20. At the time of writing, it's unclear what airline the woman was flying or where the flight was headed.


The tweet made waves on social media, with many agreeing such behavior would not sit well with them. Some even had their own suggestions on how to respond to the inconsiderate gesture. "Just sneeze into it a couple of times," one quipped.
“I would quietly lower the tray, let her hair fall in and then close it up again," another wrote. “It would piss me off and I’d tell her to keep it in her seat. If she gets pissy, offer to cut it.”

"I would order milk, and accidentally spill it all over her hair. Let that rotten milk smell follow you for the rest of your journey," a user offered.

"I’m a terrible person and this is just an invitation for me to live out my character defects," another joked.





While most agreed that such a move would piss them off, not everyone was looking for revenge. “Lol Nah. If I need the tray I’d just let her know I need to get under her hair for a sec. but why would I get mad? Flight over soon, on my merry way," one wrote.

"Would definitely be annoying, but for people with long hair I understand why they do it, not sure what a compromise would be TBH, as long as they understand I might need to move or manipulate it sometimes we could reach an understanding," another added. One user said, "Coming back from Belize. I put my elbow on it several times. Never fazed her. People are rude."




Last November, a plane passenger who similarly flicked her hair over the headrest and obscured the TV screen for the passenger seated behind, ended up with chewing gum, a lollipop, and coffee stuck to her locks in an act of revenge. Some branded a video of the incident shared on TikTok as staged.

Meanwhile, another viral clip showed a passenger chopping a woman's hair off during a flight recently, but later admitted it was a prank. He filmed the brunette as she slept in the front with her locks draped over her back seat, thereby blocking his view of the TV. The passenger filming the video subsequently produced a pair of scissors and snipped it along the top of the seat so he could view the screen again. The woman was then filmed walking off the plane with her back saying, "a huge chunk of my hair is missing!" The Sun reported.
