Is this the most annoying plane passenger in the history of aviation?

While the lady who mistook the plane exit door for a toilet may have shocked her fellow passengers, they probably forgave her ignorance.

She wasn't deliberately trying to annoy them.

And neither was another lady photographed by Twitter user and fellow plane passenger Dante Ramos, although annoy him she certainly did.

Seated in seat 22B on an unidentified flight, the woman, who can be seen on her mobile phone, placed her very long ponytail over the back of her seat - right in front of Dante's screen and dangling past his tabletop.

Perhaps she didn't realise there are TV screens on the back of ever seat.  Or that table tops regularly hold people's food and drink.

"Congrats to the ponytailed young woman in seat 22B.  You've invented a whole new way to be awful at 35,000 feet" wrote Dante with the image.

However, he later tweeted, "For the record: After marveling for a bit at her obliviousness, we got her attention. She moved it."

Fair play to her.
