If a 300 pound man comes over and sits next to you, and you slowly start seeing him taking his shoes off, what are you going to think? Do you think that is OK? Technically it all depends on the smell, hopefully they would be nice enough to wash their feet but if they want to take off their shoes they can just go in the bathroom. It might be disgusting but it’s the best place they can do it. Maybe, just maybe I would say yes to letting them take off their shoes, but if they start to take off their socks I’m done

NO! I've poured a drink on someone's feet before when they put them up on my armrest. Oops. My bad.

I'll take my shoes off on long flights as long as I'm in my seat. If I go to the bathroom or leave my seat, the shoes are definitely back on!!

Yes! I travel with a clean pair of socks just for that reason.

I do not care what circumstances or excuses, wear shoes. If you choose to wear sandals, take them off, throw them away, and wear actual shoes.

I always did, right up until I used the toilet and stepped in someone’s urine on the floor. Yuk.

I’ve never even thought about doing that. I would want something on my feet.

Yes, as long as you don’t cause a noticeable odor or put those feet next to/out in the aisle. Some exceptions for children.

How long is the flight? I’m not going to endure a 15 hour flight with shoes on. I’ve always flown 1st Class and never had a problem or complaint. Keep your feet clean and wear clean socks and newer footwear.

If you are already wearing flip-flops...yes. Otherwise, no

I don’t want to smell your smelly ass feet let alone look at them some several kilometres in the sky in the only breathable place.

I change my socks before boarding a flight and alway wear slippers for long flights once I’m seated.

If you’re first class! Or if it’s a 6+ hour flight! On my 11 hour flight to and from Japan I definitely took my shoes off.

11 hours from Denmark to Bangkok yes I took my shoes off. I was in Business.

I don’t think it matters as long as they smell nice and you stay in your seat. Definitely put your shoes on if you’re going to walk around.

I would not care as long as they are stink free.

Only if it is an over night flight.

Yes, especially if the people next to you are traveling with you. A big no if they stink!

Only if you JUST got dressed and got to the airport so you know they didn’t have time to stink

FallingStar Oregon
01/30/19 8:14 am

Yes, as long as they don’t stink and you keep them away from whoever is beside you.

01/30/19 8:12 am

The only 2 acceptable activities on a flight are sleeping and not talking to me

Leave your shoes on you nasty fucks.

01/30/19 7:40 am

Those of you voting no, you do realize the give you slippers in business class, right?

Slippers are not the same as bare feet on the floor. I wouldn’t suggest you looking at the pouch where the emergency instructions are - pig moms leave dirty diapers in there too! Do not eat off the tray table - people put their bare feet on that too ๐Ÿคฎ

01/30/19 8:24 am

I thought the question was about taking off shoes. Most people, me included, wear shoes AND socks, so I cannot assume shoeless means bare feet.

chickencookie Biden crime family
01/30/19 10:27 am

What if you travel in summer? Women wear sandals. A lot of men don’t wear socks either.

01/30/19 10:34 am

Yes, but the question is about going without shoes, not going barefoot, and I don’t think it’s accurate to assume 100% of people wear shoes without socks.

chickencookie Biden crime family
01/30/19 7:39 am

No that’s gross. No one wants to see your bare feet especially on the tray tables! If you don’t believe me check out “passengershaming” on Instagram. People are pigs and bare feet on a plane falls in that category.

I’m thinkin’ it best to be on the safe side of 'yes', so I’ma go with "No". Unless you’re @jmw7477 ...then it’s TOTALLY acceptable!๐Ÿค—

yes, as long as there are no visible green stench fumes emanating from your feet

I always keep my shoes off while I'm waiting to board my flight, so my feet aren't smelly and I can keep them off on the plane

01/30/19 3:21 am

Shoes off yes; socks, no.

theNobamist Silicon Valley
01/30/19 2:02 am

Is there still room for that? Or if you want to take off a shoe, you need to put it in the overhead bin, which means you have to check another piece of luggage?

01/30/19 1:15 am

It’s okay since you’re required to take them off for security check. That is until they realize that foot odor is the real shoe bomb.

As long as they don’t stink up the entire cabin, idgaf what you do in your seat.

paranoidandroid peace love science
01/29/19 11:29 pm

No no no. I’ve had to ask someone to put their shoes back on recently bc their feet (in socks) smelled so bad. The odor lingered for the rest of the flight.

01/29/19 11:20 pm

Only if you can guarantee that your feet won’t stink up the entire plane and you don’t walk around barefoot

Airplane floors are disgusting.

It’s bad enough to just wear socks, but the people that are barefoot, their chances for some infection goes up 500%.

01/29/19 11:09 pm

People do that shït. And then let their children walk barefoot into the lavatory. That’s the grossest thing ever people. What is wrong with you?

01/30/19 8:08 am

Did you see the family forced to deplane because they stunk to high heaven?

badattitude no place like home
01/30/19 8:17 am

I did, do they all smell so bad that they didn’t notice each other? Gross
