Rarely does a flight go by without annoying passenger antics, be it noisy eating, snoring, or taking off shoes to reveal smelly feet. However, a woman shared an unfortunate experience that takes the cake.
Teiglor Marsalis took to TikTok to share what happened on her most recent Southwest Airlines trip.
There was reportedly a passenger on the plane who used his phone to AirDrop an unsolicited inappropriate image to other passengers before takeoff.
This nearly cost Teiglor—who flew from Houston’s William P. Hobby Airport to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico—her vacation.
The AirDrop incident was brought to the attention of the captain, who made an announcement: “So here’s the deal. If this goes through on the ground, I’ll have to retreat to the gate.
“Everyone has to get out, we have to get security in, your vacation will be ruined.”
He continued, “So folks, whatever that AirDrop thing is, stop sending nudes and let’s go to Cabo.”
Teiglor’s TikTok video, which she posted on August 8, has gone viral and has racked up a whopping 150,000 likes.
More than 3,000 users have saved the video and nearly 12,000 have forwarded it to a friend.
The video was immediately inundated with comments, with TikTok user Nikki Marie saying, “This feels like my mom in the car turns to me and my twin sister, ‘If you guys don’t stop, I swear to God’.”
@walsami added to the joke: “I’m going to flip this plane and everyone’s holiday will be ruined. Haha big dad vibes.”
Austen Lambert joked, “Fill this in under ‘Suff, a pilot shouldn’t say to a cabin’.”
But others appreciated the gravity of the situation; the practice, known as ‘Cyberflashing’, has become a criminal offense in the UK.
The video is also doing the rounds on the Reddit sharing platform.
@pompompomponponom joked: “Pilot didn’t put his phone on airplane mode.”
@airmanray added: “It must have been horrific nudes when even the pilot threatens to turn the plane.”
Other users didn’t seem to blame the culprit who sent the nude photo, but those who set their AirDop to “Everyone.”
