FOR most travelers it is impossible to catch a forty wink at the airport.
But one holidaymaker had a trick up his sleeve to ensure he took a quick nap before boarding his flight.
A photo shared on the I heart Cabin Crew Facebook page showed a passenger sleeping on an air mattress at the gate, with the caption, “This person is living the dream.”
The post received over 4,000 likes on Facebook and nearly 1,000 comments, many of which were mixed.
One person wrote: “Actually brilliant, after my recent 5 hour layover and almost 19 hour day of travel I would have loved to just relax and put my feet up.”
While many users thought this was the perfect way to turn a blind eye, others labeled the passenger “selfish” because the airbed took up valuable seating for other passengers.
One wrote: “Great idea except it’s blocking four seats.”
Another person added: “I wonder if he slept the entire charge and was left behind!!!???
This isn’t the first time a passenger has been branded selfish while traveling – on a flight from Montreal, Adam Butler was faced with the female passenger, her curls draped over the back of her chair.
Because of her long hair, her curly strands blocked her view of the inflight entertainment before the seven-hour flight.
Another vacationer sparked anger after pretending to need a wheelchair to skip huge airport queues.
Wolf Jenkins has filmed himself skipping more than two hours of queues at Milas-Bodrum Airport in Turkey by pretending to have sprained his ankle.
Another passenger sparked debate after deciding to use a reading light on an airplane when all other lights were off.
These are the etiquette rules for reclining seats on air travel.
And that’s why passengers on airplanes in general are really annoying.
