A PASSENGER has been dubbed a “pig” online after he was seen openly watching an indecent clip during a flight.
A picture was shared of the man enjoying a movie on his laptop, apparently unaware that other people on the plane can see it.
A stunned passenger named Debbie Lagolf shared the picture on Instagram and claimed there were children on the plane as well.
She wrote: “Dude, seriously??? Do you realize you’re on a plane with kids?”
The photo caused disbelief in some viewers.
One simply described the man as “gross”, another wrote: “What a pig…”
It’s also not the first time a passenger has been accused of viewing footage during a flight.
Earlier this year, Tiktokian Melanie Schofield claimed she was promoted to first grade when the man next to her started looking at pornography.
She told the Daily Dot that she saw him typing the phrase “sex on a plane” into a search engine.
She says she was put in first class when she told flight crews she wanted to be taken away from the passenger.
Incidents of passengers viewing pornography on their personal devices – sometimes even in front of children – have risen sharply in recent years.
In fact, it has become such a big problem that airlines are required to provide cabin crew with special training to help deal with the problem.
United Airlines was forced to give its cabin crew the specialist training after being briefly placed on the National Center on Sexual Exploitation’s (NCOSE) “2019 Dirty Dozen List.”
The NCOSE list is designed to identify and denounce the companies that “facilitate sexual exploitation” in the United States.
United was the only airline to make the list and was accused by NCOSE of having a “sexually hostile environment” on board because people watch porn on board.
NCOSE stated: “In recent years there have been rising incidents of passengers viewing hardcore pornography on their personal devices (even in front of children!) in tight, confined spaces, leaving fellow passengers and flight crew feeling unsafe, emotionally triggered and victims of sexual harassment .
“Many reports indicated that United Airlines flight attendants seemed particularly unsuited to these situations.”
NCOSE said it removed United from its Dirty Dozen list because it decided to prioritize staff training.
Meanwhile, a prankster delayed a flight by dumping porn at people before takeoff.
