Passenger strips down to boxers and removes socks on flight
The man in the seat across from me has taken HIS PANTS OFF for the flight and is just in his boxers. Flight attendants seem unconcerned. This is going to be a long flight @AirFranceFR #CDG to #LAX pic.twitter.com/Z0EfktDwpD

Thompson uploaded three pictures of the unidentified man in his underwear and captioned the snaps: “The man in the seat across from me has taken HIS PANTS OFF for the flight and is just in his boxers. Flight attendants seem unconcerned. This is going to be a long flight … He just shouted at a man who boarded with a ukulele (also have questions) to ‘COME SIT WITH ME AND MAKE SOME MUSIC.’ Wtf is going on. [sic]”
She later added: “Two hours in he stood up and took four mini bottles of wine from the cart. Then he fell asleep. Then six hours in he got cold so PUT ON HIS PUFFY JACKET … Finally, his pants went back on. Good news: nothing bonds a group of passengers like a man half-naked in your section. [sic]”
“Shout out to the flight attendant who slipped me extra wine and did keep checking in to make sure I was good. … He took pants off in the plane bathroom pre-takeoff. He put them back on pre-landing in the aisle right next to me. He was neither American nor French. No ukulele was played, sadly. [sic]”
To answer a few q’s I’ve seen:
1. He took pants off in the plane bathroom pre-takeoff. He put them back on pre-landing in aisle right next to me.
2. He was neither American nor French
3. No ukulele was played, sadly@airfrance #CDG to #LAX

On Twitter, the reaction to Lizzie’s pictures was one of condemnation, and many people were pretty grossed out and confused. One commenter wrote: “Just more proof that air travel these days is a Greyhound bus with wings.”
Another person shared a similar experience, tweeting: “And here I was complaining about my seatmate who BOARDED our flight from Sydney, Australia already wearing plaid flannel pyjama pants….(because on a 15-hour flight, who has the time to go into the lavatory and change, amiright?). FYI he also deplaned wearing them. [sic]”
Guys, if you’re flying with other people, don’t take your trousers off. It really is as simple as that.
