A PASSENGER has been publicly shamed for removing dead skin from their foot during a flight.

Videos of people getting their bare feet out on planes aren't uncommon, with most people agreeing that it's an awful thing to do.

However, this culprit took things further by filing the dried skin from their heel onto the floor of the aircraft.

The footage was shared online by Instagram account Passenger Shaming with the caption "Pro Travel Tip: The key word in 'personal grooming' is PERSONAL."

There was nothing but agreement from people in the comments section either, with the plane pedicure described as an "arrestable offence" by one user.

One wrote: "Honestly this should get you put on the no fly list immediately."

A third added: "Turn the plane around, this is an arrestable offence."

While filing dead skin may be gross for everyone else on the flight, going bare foot on a plane is also a pretty unhygienic thing to do in general.

Flight attendant Beth Windsor told Insider it was one of the biggest mistakes you could make during a flight.

She explained that the floors are some of the dirtiest parts of the plane, and removing shoes and socks could lead to foot infections.

Beth said: "If the plane hits turbulence when you're in a small restroom, it can cause a mess that you probably don't want to step into, especially not with bare feet."

Podiatrist Ebonie Vincent also warned against getting your toes out on a plane, saying it leaves travellers exposed to bad bacteria.

She told the Washington Post: "You could pick up fungus, not to mention the millions of germs and bacteria that you could transfer to carpets, inside hotel rooms or homes and cars, which serves as a danger to other people."

Flight attendant Raven Johnson added that it made her "cringe", saying: "Yes, they're cleaning the planes a lot more than they used to, but still, you're not at home."

However, that doesn't seem to put people off, with loads of passengers caught going barefoot mid-flight.

One person was left horrified after another flyer shoved their bare feet into their seat during a flight from Melbourne to Adelaide, which was shared on Instagram by user Layla Vandenberg.
