FREQUENT flyers will know there are many annoying things passengers do when you're on a plane.

From being too noisy to hogging the armrest – there are countless ways people can irritate you during your journey.

But a new survey by Only Wanderlust has revealed the 20 most annoying passengers – and if you're one of them you might need to change your bad habits.

The number one thing passengers do which annoys their fellow flyers is kick the seat in front of them.

Anyone who has caught a flight will know how frustrating it is when someone kicks your seat – especially if you're too polite to turn round and tell them to stop, so you just have to endure it.

Number two on the list was passengers who smell bad, in at number three was passengers who talk loudly and number four was when people lean or pull your seat.

Coming in at number five was a habit quite a lot of passengers have when they take a flight – being tipsy or drunk.

Getting a pint at the airport, regardless of the time of day, comes as standard for a lot of flyers, which might lead to them annoying their fellow passengers if they're drunk when they board.
