Rarely will a flight go by without some annoying passenger antics, be it noisy eating, snoring, or taking shoes off to unveil smelly feet. However, one woman shared an unfortunate experience that takes the cake.
Teighlor Marsalis took to TikTok to share what happened on her most recent Southwest Airlines trip.
There was allegedly a passenger on the plane using their phone to AirDrop an unsolicited inappropriate image to other passengers before takeoff.
This almost cost Teighlor – who was flying from Houston’s William P. Hobby Airport to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico – her holiday.
The AirDrop incident was brought to the Captain’s attention, who made an announcement: “So here’s the deal. If this continues on the ground I’m going to have to pull back to the gate.
“Everybody’s going to have to get off, we’re going to have to get security involved, your vacation is going to be ruined.”
He continued: “So folks, whatever that AirDrop thing is, quit sending naked pictures and let’s get yourselves to Cabo.”
Teighlor’s TikTok video, which she posted on August 8, has gone viral, amassing a whopping 150,000 likes.
More than 3,000 users have saved the video, with almost 12,000 forwarding it to a friend.
The video was flooded with comments immediately, with TikTok user Nikki Marie stating: “This feels like my mum turning around in the car to me and my twin sister, ‘If you two don’t stop I swear to God’.”
@walsami added to the joke: “I’m gonna turn this plane around and everyone’s vacation will be ruined. Haha major dad vibes.”
Austen Lambert jested: “File this under ‘Suff a pilot shouldn’t have to say to a cabin’.”
But others appreciated the severity of the situation; the practice, known as ‘Cyberflashing’, has become a criminal offence in the UK.
The video is also doing the rounds on sharing platform Reddit.
@pompompomponponom joked: “Pilot didn’t put his phone in airplane mode.”
@airmanray added: “Must have been some horrid nudes if even the pilot threatens to turn round the plane.”
Other users seemed to not blame the perpetrator who sent the nude image, but those who had their AirDop set to ‘Everyone’.
