If you’ve been following aviation news, you might have noticed that misdemeanours on flights have increased quite a lot. It seems that every other day there is a new report of a passenger misbehaving with a crew member or with any other co-passenger. Inebriation is a common thread in many such incidents.

Recently, the famous Indian actor Sayani Gupta took to her Instagram account and shared a mini-rant on the matter. She said that Indian men on flights “are the f****** worst”. Her rant highlighted the lack of civic sense and basic mannerisms that Indian men exhibit on flights. Her rant evoked a number of responses.

While many agree Indians do showcase an alarming lack of manners on flights, they thought that singling out men, in particular, was uncalled for. However, many did agree with her rant and narrated their own tales of the gross behaviour they witnessed on flight by men.
