Travelling is something that overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) do on a regular basis. Given that, they encounter countless passengers throughout their careers as foreign workers. While travelling may be fun and exciting, there are some cases when it can be difficult, especially when you have to deal with other passengers who can get in your nerves easily.

Being a flight attendant for some time in her life, that is what Shawn Kathleen has observed and decided to highlight on the Instagram account she created called Passenger Shaming.

The said Instagram account has caught the attention of travellers all over the world that it was even included in Rolling Stone Magazine’s “100 Best Instagram Accounts”.

In the said social media page which boasts over 800,000 followers, netizens get to see the common pet peeves that passengers have to encounter when they travel, whether via plane, bus, or whatever transportation mode.

To get a clearer idea, take a look at some of them.

1. When passengers do this with their hair

2. When it’s already crowded but some passengers won’t remove their bags from the seats.

3. When passengers would block the aisle with their bags.

4. When passengers turn planes into a trash can.

PRO TRAVEL TIP: When flight attendants come through the cabin holding a bag asking for trash…and you don’t partake — you’re a dick. ✈️????‍♀️ JUST HAND THEM YO’ SHIT, FFS. ?? #dontdelaythenextflight ?? #FLYINGISNTREALLYTHATHARD ✈️? [purchasing a ticket doesn’t entitle you to treat the $100M aircraft like a dumpster] ?: @_ifixplanes_ ??? • • • #passengershaming #flyingfeet #NOPE #instagramaviation #airplaneetiquette #frequentflyer #crewlife #sassystew #aviation #cabincrew #avgeek #cabincrewlife #flightattendant #flightattendantlife #stewardess #flightattendantproblems #travel #flightattendants #instapassport #aviationgeek #FAlife #airtravel #travelgram #traveltips #pilot #pilotlife #travelling #frequentflier

#TBT to “THIS IS MY PERSONAL PLANE & OVERHEAD BIN SPACE – DEAL WITH IT PLEBEIANS” horseshit…????✈️? #entitledAF [No this wasn’t an empty flight, and yes they were removed to allow for the proper items this space is meant for.] PRO TRAVEL TIP/PSA: You are allowed ONE bag and ONE personal item (purse/briefcase). The smaller of the two is to be stowed completely underneath the seat in front if you. ? #KTHX ?? • • • #passengershaming #NOPE #instagramaviation #airplaneetiquette #frequentflyer #crewlife #aviation #cabincrew #avgeek #cabincrewlife #flightattendant #flightattendantlife #travel #flightattendants #instapassport #aviationgeek #FAlife #airtravel #travelgram #traveltips #pilot #pilotlife #travelling #frequentflier

8. When passengers have gross habits.

9. When there are racist passengers.
