You'll have to admit that there's a big difference between just lying on an airplane across an entire row of seats (even if you're doing it with your shoes or socks) and lying like that – but putting your bare feet on the folding tray of food.
Dry skin crumbs, anyone? A passenger gave a pedicure to her sleeping neighbor on the flight
, and this is exactly what happened on a flight that recently took off from Seattle, USA (the exact date and name of the airline were not disclosed). The passenger who took the photograph documenting the "incident" reports that someone asked the barefoot, "Are you from India?" although it was clear to everyone that they were Americans.
In any case, on passenger planes, where there is too little legroom, too much human density, and equal entertainment systems or Wi-Fi are usually nothing to talk about - in this case, there are still those who treat the plane as if it were their private living room.

Reminder: No one really cleans the trays
As we all know, in many cases the food trays on planes are not cleaned between flights. At best, they are cleaned once a day or more, which is definitely repulsive information. Even bare feet on an airplane is not always pleasing to the eye. But the combination of these two things is a real problem.
In the past, there has been a case in the United States in which a passenger put his feet on the tray of food and refused to take them off in any way. Soon a loud argument ensued, but the passenger insisted and did not give up. After landing, one of the passengers involved in an argument simply followed him to the airport car park and stabbed him.
In this context, the airport website View From The Wing reports that in the past, every United Airlines flight attendant who offered one of the passengers a $1,000 gift voucher was kindly offered to take his feet off the food tray. There's a good chance that this story didn't happen in reality, but it testifies to the extent of the phenomenon. One way or another, isn't it enough that on a flight we're all stuck together very densely in a flying metal cylinder, so also invade other people's space like this? Not at all.
