There is nothing worst than sitting next to a disgusting passenger, which these peeps learned the hard way. We scooped out for you some of the very best shocking passenger stories to make sure that you always look at your co-traveler with suspicion.
Pretending to be an Air Marshall to hit on his co-passenger
Bryan Sisco, 40, was high on alcohol confidence while traveling from Dallas to Atlanta on a Delta flight. When instead of trying to catch some sleep and regain his motor functions, he decided that the best way to use his intoxication was by hitting on a fellow passenger.
Sisco was seated next to a 23 year old, Danielle Valimont, who had to listen to countless bullshits from him before calling him out and raising alarm. During the ordeal, Sisco told the girl that he was an Air Marshall and chose to sat next to her as she was ‘harmless.’ He claimed to have information on each passenger, and even showed her a butane lighter.
When the girl still didn’t seem ‘interested’ enough in him, he bluffed about having a gas in possession which can put everyone to sleep… because apparently, chicks dig that. However at this point, Valimont was not as impressed as she was scared out of her wits.
Freaked out, she pretended to go to the bathroom but instead handed her phone (where she had written a note) to an air hostess. It stated, “If the guy in 20D is a marshal disregard this msg, he has a torch that he lit and showed me. And he said his canister has a gas device that will make everyone on the plane pass out if there is danger. He also has a device that says is like a Taser. I will go sit back down. Do what you need to”.
Shortly afterwards, the flight was diverted to Memphis where Sisco was handcuffed and was later sentenced to 3 days in jail and a life ban from flying on Delta.
A passenger so drunk, he had to be duct taped!
Duty free alcohol doesn’t always seem like a great deal, especially if you decide to gulp the whole bottle down while waiting in the airport. This scenario happened with an unidentified man who got over drunk while waiting for his flight from Iceland to New York.
Things went from bad to worse when he boarded the flight and immediately went on to become a nuisance for the passengers. The drunkard started shouting about a plane crash leading to mass panic. The passengers decided to take the matter in their own hand when he tightly hugged the girl sitting next to him.
The nearby passengers first freed the poor girl and then restrained the person using duct tapes… a lot of them, as can be seen from the picture above.
Man jailed for peeing on a fellow traveler
When Jerome Kingzio couldn’t find a restroom to relieve himself, he decided to pee on a 66 year old lady instead. Kingzio, 28, was traveling from Los Angeles to Honolulu after a crazy party when he felt the sudden urge to pee.
Kingzio frantically looked for a restroom, all the while fumbling across in the inebriated state before deciding to piss all across the flight, most of which was aimed on the old lady sitting next to him. Kingzio later found out that a hotel room would have costed him much less than the flight, as he was found guilty and ended up spending three weeks in prison for the horrendous act.
Man gets intimate with a trolley when turned down by fellow passengers
When a Britisher, Andrew Davidson couldn’t get the attention of the opposite sex, he decided to turn his focus and love on a trolley instead.
Davidson was on “legal high”, a term for having a high using legal drugs, when he tried to smooth talk a staff member into kissing him. When that didn’t work out, he reportedly tried to sit on another women’s lap… all the while sticking his tongue out and rubbing his chest like a deranged maniac.
When he realized that none of the living would make out with him, he turned his attention to an unattended trolley containing food, drinks and cash. He was heard shouting, “I want to kiss you” to the trolley before starting to rub himself on the trolley and finally humping the poor thing without its consent.
Davidson was quickly arrested but received only 100 hours of community work as he felt sorry and was disgusted by his actions. Meanwhile, the trolley had to live with this ordeal and even now, is too ashamed to tell its story to the world.
Passenger opens and exits through emergency door following a normal landing
Akash Jain from India was on a domestic flight when he decided that he was not the type of person who will go through regular checks and procedures once the flight lands.
Determined to live his life on a ‘Mission Impossible’ yet still safe theme, he opened the emergency gate after the plane landed safely. And swiftly proceeded to exit through while the fellow passengers waited for the normal doorway to open. He jumped on the tarmac and was out of the airport in 10 minutes.
Jain’s stunt caused panic as exiting without proper checks caused a serious security breach and ensured mass delay for the ensuing flights. Citywide search ensured that he was later apprehended by the cops. Surprisingly, this is not a one off incident in Asia, as similar incidents have been reported in China as well.
Stabbed by pen for snoring
Lenny Mordarski, 68, was a heavy snorer who found out that some passengers would prefer being jailed then go through his snoring.
Mordarski fell asleep while on a flight from Chicago to Manchester. His snoring was not taken well by a fellow lady passenger who went on to stab him with a pen multiple times before the old man woke up. In Mordarski’s own words, the pain and the experience was like ‘being asleep and then being stung by bees, and then waking up and going owww.’
To add to the man’s misery, the lady was smirking and said nothing about the pain she inflicted on the poor guy. The old man was peeved by her arrogance though he didn’t press charges. The crew was not so kind to her for the agony she caused and they made sure that she was taken out of the airplane.
Girl who was too keen to join the mile high club
A girl in her 20’s, who was traveling to Las Vegas by Virgin Airlines, decided to make an irony out of the brand name by having have fun with a passenger in the lavatory of the airplane.
The British girl got intimate with a co-passenger she just met, and decided to have sex with him in the airline’s toilet. The loud bangs and moans made sure that everybody knew about the act, and the duo was caught red handed when the crew forced the door open.
To add to her woes, she was traveling with her parents, who were appalled when they saw her getting handcuffed and taken away. The girl was let go with a warning, though we are sure that her peeps would rather prefer to drive to a family vacation from now on.
The fellow passenger whose feet smelled like ‘Death, Decay’
What can you do if you are a comedy writer and find yourself traveling with a fellow passenger who just doesn’t give a damn? Munyee Lau, 24, from Malaysia had the perfect answer to the question when she decided to write an open letter to her fellow traveler who made her life living hell during her journey.
Lau made sure that the passenger remained anonymous to the Internet yet gets the message of practicing little manners when it comes to using public transport.
Dear passenger 15A,
You do not know me but I was seated in front of you during the flight from Singapore to Sydney on April 12th.
What I had initially thought to be a routine flight turned out to be a once in a lifetime experience – and it was all because of you.
I am writing this letter to thank you personally.
Being the cheapskate that I am, I did not pay extra for a seat next to the emergency exit.
Though it offered more legroom, I couldn’t be bothered to read the special safety procedures. The last thing I would want is to compromise the lives of all the innocent passengers because I do not know how to open the airplane door.
Despite my common economy seat, you offered me a full back massage by repeatedly kicking the back of chair. To date, I have yet to regain full mobility of the lower half of my body. But since I am single, I suppose I don’t have much use for it anyway.
I did not pay for the in-flight entertainment package and I was worried that I might get bored. But my concerns were unnecessary. You were talking so loudly, as if your friend was seated in the cargo hold rather than right next to you.
Perhaps she’s hard of hearing? This might strike you as odd but for the first time in my life, I wished I had a hearing impairment too.
Also, could you tell me where you bought those obnoxious snacks? I assume that they must have been delicious cause you rip one open every 30 minutes.
Thanks for the loud rustling and chewing ambient sounds!
At this point, I thought, ‘It can’t get any better than this.’ But what I had meant as a rhetorical question, you took as a challenge.
For immediately, my nose was assaulted by a putrid smell of death and decay.
The stench was so strong that I turned to check if the old lady seated next to me was still breathing.
It was so nice of you to take off your shoes and put your feet between my seat and the plane window. It must have taken considerable effort – it was a small space but you stuck it as close to my face as you possibly could.
Your kindness moves me.
The sun is rising above the horizon; the sky is bleeding crimson and gold. But I cannot turn to gaze at this everyday miracle because every time I do, I smell the anus of Satan.
I had half the mind to pull down the oxygen mask above me. But then I remembered that I was flying on a budget airline, so I’d probably have to pay extra for that.
Did you know that you have made me a more religious person?
I have said more prayers in that eight-hour flight than I have in my entire life.
I was torn between asking God for strength to endure the rest of the journey and,
‘SWEET GUAN YIN MA [a Buddhist nun], TAKE ME HOME!’
This experience has been so memorable that I am writing this from my therapist’s office. I have also signed up for ten more sessions to talk about it.
Thank you once again.
