Just when you thought you’d seen it all: a Delta Air Lines first class passenger swiped his in-flight entertainment screen — with his bare feet.
Rene’s Points reader Claudio forwarded me this video last night.

Claudio’s comment loosely translates to “For all those who believe that going first (class) does not exclude sharing a seat with sow people.” (Thanks, Claudio, for sending us this!)
A friend of author/surrogate tweeter Alafair Burke was seated in a first class — and filmed the horrifying, disgusting scene.
You may ask yourself, “Is this toe-tapping person differently abled? Does he not have control of his arms?”
Ms. Burke’s got that covered (after her excellent pun).
The photographer confirms that she saw him walk on and off the plane, carrying his own bag. He just likes to watch TV with his bare feet.

This simply appears to be an amateur Lon Chaney too lazy to reach his IFE.
Seriously, my two-year-old daughter uses her hands to swipe her tablet (or the cell phone of an adult not paying attention.) But an adult seated in first class can’t bother to use his fingers like a civilized human?
My wife always uses disinfecting wipes (currently on sale with Amazon Prime Days!) to clean everything on or near her seat when we fly. I think I’ll stop making fun of her and start sanitizing everywhere!
Where to Put Your Feet on a Plane?
The floor. With your shoes and socks on.
Period. End of story.
The only other acceptable answer is a footrest or a lie-flat bed.
Would You Have Said Anything?
Would you have told this feral footstie foister to take his toes off the screen? Or called over a flight attendant?
