Long flights can be a real pain in the a**. No one wants to be stuck on an airplane with complete strangers for hours on end, in an uncomfortable seat, and nothing to eat but airplane food. It’s safe to say that no matter where we are flying—being on a plane for more than a few hours is seriously painful.
Imagine having to fly overseas, for over 10+ hours, with a passenger who decides that no pants is the best way to fly—and, no socks and shoes, too.
Lizzie Thompson tweeted her horrifying experience flying from France to Los Angeles and…OMG, it’s bad.
The man in the seat across from me has taken HIS PANTS OFF for the flight and is just in his boxers. Flight attendants seem unconcerned. This is going to be a long flight @AirFranceFR #CDG to #LAX pic.twitter.com/Z0EfktDwpD— Lizzie Thompson (@Lizzie_Thompson) February 18, 2019
Not only did the passenger remove his pants, but he also removed his socks and was sitting on the plane completely barefoot.

Then, this guy decided that making music with strangers was a great idea for a 10+ hour flight.
He just shouted at a man who boarded with a ukulele (also have questions) to COME SIT WITH ME AND MAKE SOME MUSIC. Wtf is going on.— Lizzie Thompson (@Lizzie_Thompson) February 18, 2019
After Thompson began tweeting, people had a lot of questions, so she made sure to fill everyone in.
To answer a few q’s I’ve seen:— Lizzie Thompson (@Lizzie_Thompson) February 19, 2019
1. He took pants off in the plane bathroom pre-takeoff. He put them back on pre-landing in aisle right next to me.
2. He was neither American nor French
3. No ukulele was played, sadly@airfrance #CDG to #LAX
People had a lot of…thoughts.

Ok, boxers aren’t shorts. They have a hole for your ding dong to come out of. This seems very inappropriate.— Donia (Lasagna) (@doniamae) February 18, 2019

But, have no fear everyone—AirFrance informed Thompson that they “forwarded her information to the right people.”
