Sadl Brad, a contributor to a Delta Sky Miles forum, was excited to have been upgraded to First Class on his flight from New York (JFK) to Sint Maarten (SXM). However, he was repulsed by a passenger in the first row of First Class who shed his $1200 Louis Vuitton shoes for the entire flight and put his bare feet all over the place.
He put his bare feet on the wall and the in-flight entertainment screen the entire flight.
“You can buy First Class, but you can’t buy class” remarked someone in the comments.
Putting your bare feet on the in-flight entertainment screen is extremely disgusting and unacceptable behavior. It shows a complete lack of consideration for fellow passengers and a disregard for basic hygiene. Not only is it unsanitary to put bare feet on surfaces that are shared by multiple people, but it also creates an uncomfortable and unpleasant environment for others.
Other commenters wondered why someone from Delta Air Lines didn’t do something.
Sadl mentioned that the passenger also went to the bathroom multiple times while still barefoot, putting his feet back on the wall and in-flight entertainment center.
Should someone from Delta Air Lines have done something? What would you have done in this situation?
