Once there was a really rude Singaporean guy who sat in the aisle seat,

Ok this is really interesting...how did you know he's a Singaporean? Did he have some chop or tattoo of indentification on his forehead?

No tattoo or chop that we could see The only reason we knew he was Singaporean was because the cabin crew started talking to him in Thai and he then told them in a very loud voice for the whole cabin to hear that he was Singaporean not Thai and could they kindly speak to him in English!

And may I guess that he was talking in Pidgin English?

His English was excellent, like most Singaporeans we have met...it's just a pity is manners weren't as excellent! One thing I hate is bad manners!

This I have to differ. Most Singaporeans think they speak English but what they're spouting is actually a mish-mash of local dialects and a malformed version of English. This, they affectionately call 'Singlish'. The accent is also particularly annoying and jarring to the ears.

But I have to concur with you on one point: these people are not exactly well-mannered (if you compare them with the Japanese). You'll frequently see some fit and healthy Singaporeans scrambling for elevators at metro stations meant for the infirmed or elderly. And yet some keep neither left nor right on the escalator; they stand right smack in the middle...apparently oblivious to the rushing (and angry) crowd from behind!

I sat next to a man who may have weighed like 400 pounds. To make matters worse he was in the middle seat. It was horrible, as I had the window. He couldn't even fit in the seat. I felt bad and offered to raise the arm rest so that he could actually sit all the way down, not knowing the repercussions of my actions. He spilled into my seat. Plus he was sweaty, and nervous, and obviously embarrassed. I sat the whole way pressed against the window. After we landed he said "well, that wasn't so bad!" yeah.. not for you...
It was terrible.

When the plane has only two seats next to the window.. I'll just buy two coach seats instead of a first class ticket. (Much cheaper and I can stretch out and have a place to sit my laptop when I'm not on it).

Shortly after the pane took off the attendant moved a another passenger next to me. I should have said something, but I didn't know what to say. And she (the passenger who was invading my free seat) started going on and on about how she paid full price for her ticket and how she was sat next to " a fat slob who couldn't fit in his seat" and she kept talking and talking about it.

Hours later when we were about and hour from our destination this rather umm, well we'll say "plus size" lady comes walking down the aisle headed for the bathroom. My neighbor blurts out loudly "how many fat asses are on this plane anyway?" The girl coming down the aisle started walking very fast. I wanted to say something to her so I got up and went to wait in line for the bathroom, but I could she was crying and wouldn't look at me. So I just went back to my seat and kind of told off my new "friend" who only said. "if people were to sensitive they shouldn't be fat."

More like persons: this weekend, namely around 200 12 to 14 year old kids who were going on an English course trip to London. I would have liked they took a direct flight from Sao Paulo, but they flew to Amsterdam first

Hi all, for me the most impressive passenger I've met is the one sitting next to me in a flight to Bangkok. It's a man in his thirty wearing a coat and a pair of dark sunglasses. He kept reading the newspaper in the plane but I didn't know exactly whether he's reading it as i couldn't see his eyes (his sunglasses are very dark). When we had our in-flight food, i just realized how rude could he be! His appetite was really big and kept requesting the stewardess to add coffee to her, at the same time requested his beer also. Then he told the stewardess that the food was too cold and requested a new one but actually he already finished half of the cold meal. Then the new set come and when he almost finished it he suddenly threw the meat up on the plate but he failed and those meat dropped on the floor and some on my seat!! Oh gosh! I really felt vomit at that time seeing the fresh watery meat on my seat.. Luckily it didn't reach my pant, or I'd shout.. I thought he'd say sorry to me but he didn't. Instead, he just called the stewardess.. So it's the poor stewardess who suffered.. Help him to clean the things and added some more coffee for him again.. I made a wish on the plane that don't ever let me meet this guy again..silently.. So this is my story and I wish he won't sit next to you all in your trip too
