If you are a frequent traveller, you’re sure to have experienced all sorts of in-flight experiences and all sorts of passengers. From screaming toddlers, loud snores, stale meals, loud conversations, smelly feet and reclined positions, you would have experienced some negativism invariably on long flights, especially. You already know how flight co-passengers can be a real pain and there’s nothing you can do to escape them from several feet above the ground.
Only a few days ago, Mirror reported that a pilot made an emergency landing because an elderly man couldn’t stop passing wind and now *hold your breath*, there’s another bizarre airline episode which has surfaced on the net and it will make you gasp in SHOCK.
The flight from Antalya, Turkey, to the Russian capital of Moscow, witnessed a rather horrific sight. The passengers much to their amusement and confusion, saw a co-passenger woman drying an underwear right under the AC vent of this packed flight and the video went viral.
Dangling her underwear under the air vent for good 20 minutes, the unnamed woman dried her lingerie VERY OPENLY and was filmed by an onlooker with a smartphone at the back.
The unfazed woman didn’t seem at all embarrassed about flashing her black and white knickers high above the heads of her fellow travellers.
According to other passengers on board, the brazen women held the undies close to the air vent above her head, while everybody looked with shock and confusion.
The video was widely shared on social media in Russia, where it was sent to Russia’s The First Tula website who shared it on 14th February. Since then, many viewers commented what they thought of it. They reported that an eyewitness said, “People looked with surprise and bewilderment, but all were silent.”
One Reddit user said:
Imagine the smell getting blown through the cabin!
While another wrote:
How the f**k is she not embarrassed?
However, some people have suggested that the underwear might have belonged to a child that was travelling with the woman, and could easily have gotten wet from a spilt drink or splashed water from the bathroom tap.

Those aren’t ones of an adult. Looks like they belong to a kid.
Still, that didn’t stop Tweeple from thinking that the woman was just being super trashy.

Here is the video which caused an uproar on all video-sharing platforms:
However, an important lesson for all passengers – do not flash your pants anytime, because you will be recorded, and you will be circulated on social media.
Do you think this is an acceptable way to dry underwear? Tell us in the comments.
