A FLIGHT attendant has revealed the most annoying thing passengers when the plane has touched down.
After nine years working as a flight attendant, Jason Rushworth has met many annoying passengers.
He recently shared the harsh reality of being a flight attendant, including the most infuriating thing passengers immediately do when the plane has landed.
He told MyLondon: "If you are flying any time soon, don’t be in such a hurry to leave the aircraft unless it's an emergency.
"Many times I had to spring out of my jumpseat and run down the cabin slamming all the overhead lockers because we were still taxiing as a moving aircraft and bags were falling on passengers heads.
"I slammed one so hard once that the hinge snapped and we could not fly back until it was repaired."

He told MailOnline: "The main thing that a passenger can do to start out on the wrong foot is avoiding eye contact or ignoring a basic greeting when I say hello to them.
"Besides being rude, it disrespects the crew's role as safety professionals."
Meanwhile another flight attendant revealed they hate it when passengers ask for water while boarding.
They explained: "Bottom line – we don't find it cute, when you stop us from what we're doing to crack open the seals on the water and cups for a single glass of water."
