People often joke about the way some travelers act when they're flying, but sometimes, some people's behavior goes beyond the jokes. Even though we pay good money to fly (sometimes way too much money), it's still important to respect our surroundings while doing it. Cleaning up after yourself when you deplane is usually the bare minimum, and most people don't have a problem doing it — or so we thought.
On TikTok, flight attendant @letsjourneyy shared footage of what the plane she was working on looked like after a flight, and we almost can't believe what we're looking at. Who knew that people actually trashed airplanes like this in the small amount of time they were on it?
The plane as a whole was in bad shape, but it's pretty shocking to see the way some of the rows looked after it was empty. There were ripped up safety cards people had taken from the back of their seats, garbage from the fast food they'd brought on board all over the floor (including straight up pickles on the carpet) — you really have to see it for yourself.
"Anytime we have flights and we come through over and over and we say 'hey, if there is any trash or service items or anything you brought from outside onto the plane, please pass it to a flight attendant because we like to help our cleaners out as much as possible,' — so when we say that, please give us your trash," she said at the end of the video.
In the comments, a lot of people were pretty disgusted with the state of the plane. After all, someone's going to have to clean it up, and like the flight attendant said in the video, the cleaners who come through usually don't have much time to do it.
"I’m so sorry people are that disrespectful. People can be horrible," one person wrote.
Next time you fly, just take your trash with you when you leave. It really is that simple!
