A flight attendant has shared some of her biggest pet peeves from passengers on a flight – from parents changing babies on tray tables to people clipping their toenails.
Natalie Magee, from Colorado, has been working in the industry for a few years, and shares her experience on her TikTok.
The 42-year-old revealed the most annoying things people do on planes that bother ‘every’ flight attendant.
‘There are so many [pet peeves], like when people don’t shut the bathroom door or leave the bathroom a mess,’ she said.
‘Also when you can hear it flush but not the sink so you know they didn’t wash their hands.

‘And people who take up too much overhead bin space and want to put every jacket and small item in there.’
Other annoyances include passengers attempting to smoke vapes or trying to sneak their own booze aboard, or if they are overly eager for an alcoholic beverage.
Flight attendant reveals her biggest pet peeves
Not shutting the bathroom door or leaving a mess
Not washing your hands after the bathroom
Putting small items in the overhead bin
Vaping in the toilet
Requesting booze right after take off
Bringing your own alcohol on board
Letting children run wild
Leaving a dirty diaper in the seat pocket
Not wearing headphones
Hitting other passengers with a backpack
Not handing over trash and leaving it on the floor
Talking on the phone after the doors have shut
Natalie said: ‘[Another pet peeve is] people who hit their call buttons right after takeoff to ask for an alcoholic beverage.’
It’s not just boozy holiday-goers who are frustrating to deal with – parents who let their kids loose are no exception.
The flight attendant said: ‘I’m also a parent myself, but when people let their kids put stickers on the airplane or draw on it or leave a dirty diaper in the seat back pocket, I’m horrified.’
As well as these pet hates, Natalie says it’s also annoying when people don’t wear headphones while watching or listening to something.
She said: ‘They expect everyone to be subjected to their music or what they’re watching.
‘Also people who wear backpacks and hit other passengers with it going down the aisle.
‘Not throwing away their trash when we come through and leaving it on the floor.
‘I also get annoyed when people are talking on the phone after we close the main cabin door and won’t shut their phone off or cease their conversation after repeatedly being asked to do so.’
Despite these issues, Natalie loves her job and believes not all passengers are bad, and even just a simple thank you can make her day.
She said: ‘Honestly, when people say ‘thank you’ when they are getting off the plane [it is really great].
‘Or when they take the time to look at us when we are doing the beverage service and say please and thank you, we really appreciate it.
‘I also like people who help others with their bags, especially moms and the elderly as we can’t always help everyone when boarding.’
As flight attendants, Natalie says staff think of the aircraft as their home.

She said: ‘We would love it if people treated the space as their home and were tidy and respectful.
‘Also, we know not everyone is travelling for a fun reason.
‘Some people have funerals to attend or going home to take care of a loved one and people are stressed. A little kindness goes a long way.’
She added that going to the toilets barefoot, clipping their toenails and leaving sick bags in their seats.
One person said: ‘Can’t believe people do ANY of these omfg.’ Another added: ‘Some people really lack common sense and courtesy.’
