For the second year in a row, seat-kickers have earned the title of "most annoying airplane passenger," with 61 percent of the 1,019 frequent fliers surveyed citing these passengers as their biggest inflight concern.
Inattentive parents were also an annoyance at 35,000 feet. Fifty-nine percent of respondents found passengers who exhibited little or no control over their children were a major inflight aggravation.
Passengers with music blaring from their headphones or who exhibited poor hygiene or a pungent smell were also considered major offenders by 50 percent of respondents.
The travel company also determined that the majority of frequent fliers prefer peace and quiet during their flight. While 75 percent of respondents reported that "small talk is fine," only 16 percent said that they used flying as an opportunity to meet and chat with new people.
Thirty-seven percent of Americans said that they would pay extra to be seated in a designated quiet zone while flying.
Despite cataloging all of the inflight annoyances of fellow passengers, 75 percent of those surveyed said that "for the most part, fellow passengers are considerate."
