Pics: Fellow flyer pet peeves

A recent survey reveals ten things that really irritate passengers about their fellow flyers.

Single, male and in your thirties? Congratulations! You're the perfect air passenger - well that is if you're travelling alone, heading on a holiday and not a celebrity. 

This was the general consensus of a Skyscanner survey conducted among 700 cabin crew from 85 different countries around the world. 

eTN reports that for cabin crew operating in UK airspace, English men were voted as perfect passenger by an overwhelming majority. Men from Wales were deemed the least favourite passengers amongst British travellers.

Seen by many, as one of the most glamorous and desirable jobs, cabin crew are in the unique position to meet and greet people from all walks of life. However, with nearly 3 million people sitting in the sky every day, some regular habits and requests can understandably get under their skin more than others.

Skyscanner's Sam Poullain said: "This is the first time that we've surveyed international cabin crew and the findings give us a real insight into what they really think of passengers. It's interesting to see that it's the men who get the vote for the perfect passenger, and while many of us would love to travel business or first class, cabin crew prefer to work in economy."
