Flights are usually long, tedious
and boring – but these photo prove that’s not always the
case.

Some very odd passenger behaviour
made these flights much more entertaining than usual, and
flightgoers made sure to capture the bizarre happenings on
camera.

Travellers have shared the
weirdest things they have ever seen on a plane, which include
unusual animal companions and even a passenger who was
restrained with masking tape by his fellow flightgoers after
causing havoc on a flight.

And they will make you thankful
that nothing so strange happened on any of your aeroplane
journeys.

This large exotic spider was spied on the window of a plane, presumably after being carried in accidentally by a passenger or climbing in. One flightgoer attempted to capture it

This man apparently drank a whole bottle of duty-free alcohol, before starting to spit at other passengers, screaming at a woman sitting next to him that the plane was going to crash, and then finally trying to choke a fellow passenger before he was restrained by flightgoers with masking tape

It's unclear why this woman decided to wrap herself up in a plastic bag but hopefully it made her less anxious about the flight

Some people have shared photos of truly unacceptable passenger behaviour, such as this man who used a plane window as a sock dryer

Several people shared disturbing photos of people's feet poking through gaps in plane seats

Has this ever happened to you?

Several people shared disturbing photos of people’s feet
poking through gaps in plane seats, which is rather rude

An alarming number of passengers seem to think it's acceptable to poke their bare feet through gaps in the seat so that they're resting on the arm rest of the person in front of them

Legs akimbo! It looks as if this passenger has spread their legs upwards and widely, with an impressive span. The man next to him can't be too impressed

More than a little creepy! One passenger was alarmed when this odd toy with bulging eyes appeared in front of him - presumably being held by a child
