PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — If you want to spend time with friends and family during the holidays, you might find yourself traveling on a plane surrounded by others. A survey by Genfare reveals the top travel annoyances from a selection of 2,000 Americans who travel at least twice a year.
On average, it takes about three hours before people start to feel uncomfortable during a flight. Leg room factored into this comfort level with 64 percent of survey takers saying it’s OK to remove shoes during a flight while only 20 percent said taking socks off is fine.
Nearly 40 percent of fliers believe that reclining seats should be banned aboard flights and roughly 34 percent need a sleep aid to help them doze while in the air.
When asked which is the most annoying thing to deal with during a flight, 54 percent responded that being kicked in the seat is the worst.
Crying babies ranked number two at 27 percent and body odor was a close third at 26 percent.
The least annoying parts of a flight were bright screens on phones, non-service dogs, and sloppy dressers.
