6 Craziest Things Travelers Ever Heard Passengers Say on an Airplane

Air travel in the social media age has lost the plot. It’s as though someone opened a can of Karen magic dust, sprinkled it everywhere, and waited for the outcome. From shouting at air stewards to telling the passengers how a seat neighbor is “not real,” air travel involves much controversy.
