Bare feet seems to be the number one culprit.

Everyone has a story to tell when it comes to horrible, disgusting things they have witnessed on a plane.

From body odour to bare feet, you never know who or what you”ll encounter on your next flight. There’s even an Instagram account dedicated to passenger shaming.

On Wednesday, an American woman documented her worst “nightmare” on a domestic route, which in turn reminded me of my own, gross experience.

Jessie Char was delighted when she boarded a flight from Long Beach to San Francisco to find she had two empty seats.

However, her happiness was shortlived when she spotted a pair of swollen, bare feet popping through from the seat behind.

And that’s not the worst of it.

“While I was logging onto the airplane Wi-Fi, I saw the left foot stretch over to open the window, and then close it again,” she explained.
