When it come to passenger shaming, we try our best to leave these stories to former flight attendant Shawn Kathleen. But this bizarre incident on board an Ural Airlines flight is one that we, unfortunately, cant ignore or unsee.
According to View from the Wing, a female passenger aboard the Russian airliner was spotted drying her underwear on a recent flight from Turkey to Moscow. The moment was recorded by a nearby passenger a few rows back, but the unidentified woman ignored it and continued to dry her panties.
According to passengers on the flight, the drying went on for about 20 minutes as those around the woman in question remained silent and in shock. As shown in the video below, the woman proceeded to turn the garment around, ensuring that every inch of it was dried.
“Everybody was looking with interest and confusion, but everybody remained silent,” one passenger told the Daily Mail. Despite some disgusted looks from other passengers on the plane, the woman did not take notice.
