Passenger removing pants, shoes and socks on Air France flight goes viral
New Delhi : A woman passenger posted pictures of her co-passenger on an Air France flight as he first removed his pants, then shoes and socks during the journey. Her tweets, shared with pictures, have collected quite a few reactions from people on the micro-blogging site.
“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,” Lizzie Thompson tweeted on February 18. Check out the pictures shared with tweet below:
“He just shouted at a man who boarded with a ukulele (also have questions) to COME SIT WITH ME AND MAKE SOME MUSIC,” she tweeted.
A few minutes after being in discomfort, the woman informed flight attendant about the situation.
Finally, his pants went back on. Good news: nothing bonds a group of passengers like a man half naked in your section. Shout out to the flight attendant who slipped me extra wine and did keep checking in to make sure I was good.— Lizzie Thompson (@Lizzie_Thompson) February 18, 2019
Meanwhile, here’s what the airline has to say about the incident.
“Air France regrets the customer’s feelings and confirms that the passenger boarded in shorts and sandals,” an Air France representative told Insider, adding that the crew handled the incident according to protocol.
“The company reminds us that it is not the responsibility of cabin crew to require customers to wear acceptable clothing, except of course in the event of indecent dress. Having solicited the crew whose role is to ensure the comfort and well-being of the passengers, the customer was offered another seat of the same type and with the same comfort that she refused,” the representative added.
