Some people love flying. The idea of taking a flight to a new destination for a vacation or a quick trip is exhilarating for people. Others, however, hate the idea of being crammed into a small plane with complete strangers—even if they are going to a beautiful destination. Why should we hate flying with people? Exhibit A—sitting near people who decide that wearing pants on an airplane is totally overrated.
Recently, Lizzie Thompson was headed from France to Los Angeles—which, is pretty much a 10+ hour flight. While any flight can be grueling—international flights are truly something. Not only are you trapped on a plane, but you’re trapped on a plane for hours and hours. Your legs start to go numb, you can’t find a comfortable position in your seat, and you get sick and tired of the movie selections they offer.
It’s even worse when a fellow traveler is wearing no pants. Thompson shared an image saying that the flight attendants on her plane seemed “unconcerned.”
The man in the seat across from me has taken HIS PANTS OFF for the flight and is just in his boxers. Flight attendants seem unconcerned. This is going to be a long flight @AirFranceFR #CDG to #LAX pic.twitter.com/Z0EfktDwpD— Lizzie Thompson (@Lizzie_Thompson) February 18, 2019
Not only did the passenger remove his pants, but he also removed his socks and was sitting on the plane completely barefoot.

Apparently, not only was this guy looking for extreme comfort—but, he wanted to make some sweet, sweet music on this 10+ hour long flight.
He just shouted at a man who boarded with a ukulele (also have questions) to COME SIT WITH ME AND MAKE SOME MUSIC. Wtf is going on.— Lizzie Thompson (@Lizzie_Thompson) February 18, 2019
After Thompson began tweeting, people had a lot of questions, so she made sure to fill everyone in.
To answer a few q’s I’ve seen:— Lizzie Thompson (@Lizzie_Thompson) February 19, 2019
1. He took pants off in the plane bathroom pre-takeoff. He put them back on pre-landing in aisle right next to me.
2. He was neither American nor French
3. No ukulele was played, sadly@airfrance #CDG to #LAX
People had a lot of…thoughts.

Ok, boxers aren’t shorts. They have a hole for your ding dong to come out of. This seems very inappropriate.— Donia (Lasagna) (@doniamae) February 18, 2019

But, have no fear everyone—AirFrance informed Thompson that they “forwarded her information to the right people.”
