An individual has received criticism online for painting their nails while onboard a flight.
A fellow passenger captured a photo of an unidentified traveler painting their fingernails and also accused them of bringing their own beer onto the plane to consume.
Aviation journalist JT Genter posted two photos on Twitter/X featuring a woman. In one, she is applying nude nail polish, and in the other, a can of Bud Light beer can be seen on her tray table.
“Attention nail polish users: It is advised to not wait until you are in a confined area with numerous unfamiliar individuals breathing in recycled air to put on nail polish,” he stated.
“Some individuals may have a heightened sensitivity to toxic fumes. Additionally, please be aware that consuming alcohol brought onto the premises is prohibited.”
Some commenters were shocked by the woman’s actions, while others supported the idea of bringing alcohol on a flight.
One person on social media stated, “I agree with you about the first point, but let’s acknowledge and appreciate the hard work for the second point, lol.”
Someone else expressed their frustration, saying, “It’s incredibly frustrating to have to breathe in nail polish fumes and not be able to speak up without causing a commotion. I hope the flight is short.”
Mr. Genter mentioned that the journey was thankfully brief, as he was able to use the air nozzles to reduce the intensity.
He stated, “The scent can actually cause me to break out in hives and experience difficulty breathing.”
This is not the initial occurrence of a traveler causing a commotion with their contentious actions.
This week, Robert F Kennedy Jr., a candidate for president, was accused of behaving in a “disgusting” manner by entering an airplane bathroom without wearing shoes.
The 35th President of the US, John F Kennedy’s nephew, Mr Kennedy, has changed his party affiliation from Democrat to independent and is now running as a candidate in the 2024 US presidential elections.
According to CNN, he is currently receiving a higher amount of support in polls than any other independent or third-party candidate in recent history. However, his behavior on flights has been causing a stir on social media.
