Passenger branded a hero for his ‘genius’ revenge on fellow traveller during flight

A MAN has filmed getting revenge on the passenger sitting behind him on a plane after he displayed very questionable foot etiquette.

Dealing with other people on airplanes can be difficult, but this man used a very simple method to quickly quell a fellow passenger’s unwanted behavior.

Andreas Ellingsen was sitting happily on his flight when he noticed that the person sitting in the back had stretched out so that one of their feet was sticking out from under his seat.

Rather than politely asking the person to remove their foot from his legroom, Andreas just took matters into his own hands.

He poured cold water over the affected toes, which then very quickly withdrew under the seat.

Andrew (@andreasellingseeN) filmed the encounter and shared it on Tiktok, where it has been viewed more than eight million times.

The videoshared with the caption “Bon Voyage!” received widespread support from other people online, who say he was definitely right.

One wrote: “That’s the only appropriate answer.”

Another said: “Not all heroes wear capes.”

A third added: “You sir are a genius.”

Also Andreas is not the only one who has used this method for revenge, another Tiktoker Daniel Green did the same.

Daniel noticed a pair of gray socks sticking out from under his seat and quickly took decisive action by pouring a can of soda on her socks.

He filmed his revenge and shared it with Tiktok (@danielgreen2426), where it was viewed more than 310,000 times.

Daniel with caption the video: “A woman on the plane behind me kept pushing her stinky feet under me…then she stopped.”

The Sun Online Travel flight attendant explained the three main rules for feet on planes, including keeping them under you whenever possible.

They said: “Your boarding pass has a number and a letter on it. This is the reserved seat you paid for.”

“Your feet, which are connected to your body, should do their best to stay in that space and stay away from others.”

They also explained why feet should always be covered on planes, no matter how comfortable people want it.

They continued, “If you insist on stretching out, please make sure your feet are covered.”

“The risk of bacterial infection from walking barefoot on a flight is actually quite high and you may need to see your GP.

“At least I would say that thick socks should at least be worn on a flight. That’s the minimum level of protection I would hope for given how many bacteria or critters could be nesting in the carpet and interior of the plane anywhere in the world.”
