A FLIGHT attendant has revealed the worst things passengers do when they board the plane.

Jay Roberts previously worked as a senior flight attendant for Emirates.

He asked on his Facebook page A Fly Guy's Crew Network what some of the worst things travellers do on plane.

Jay shared his own bugbear, and it happens while boarding a plane.

"Besides being rude, it disrespects the crew's role as safety professionals.

Ex-flight attendant Carrie told The Sun Online: "When passengers are boarding, you're assessing them and seeing if they are an ABP.

Another flight attendant has revealed three etiquette rules that all passengers should follow, including who gets to claim the armrests.
