Holidaying is great but flying sucks - like it really sucks. Packing is horrible, getting up early (which always seems to be the way) is exhausting, and then there's the airport and the lines and the security and just everything else before you even get on the plane.

Once you've boarded and taken off, you may think it's time to kick back and chill out, but that's apparently when passengers are on their very worst behavior. According to this AskReddit, there's actually hundreds of SUPER annoying things that air-travel passengers do and pilots and flight attendants are calling us ALL out!

Flight Attendants and/or Pilots of Reddit is where all of this calling out is going down. We've done the hard work and trawled this Reddit for the top 30 most annoying things passengers do - check them out!
