An unidentified Air France passenger has gone viral after removing his pants, shoes and socks on a 10-plus-hour flight from Paris to Los Angeles earlier this week.
Lizzie Thompson documented the man’s bizarre exploits on Twitter, garnering thousands of comments and retweets in the process.
The man in the seat across from me has taken HIS PANTS OFF for the flight and is just in his boxers. Flight attendants seem unconcerned. This is going to be a long flight @AirFranceFR #CDG to #LAX pic.twitter.com/Z0EfktDwpD
He has also removed his socks. pic.twitter.com/0cmhtlFxOi
As if things weren’t strange enough, the incident also involved a ukulele.
He just shouted at a man who boarded with a ukulele (also have questions) to COME SIT WITH ME AND MAKE SOME MUSIC. Wtf is going on.
Thompson said that she alerted the flight attendant to the half-naked man but was met with a shrug.
Update @AirFranceFR – alerted the flight attendant. He offered to move me (which would mean losing my bulkhead legroom) but just shrugged when I suggested he ask the man to put his pants back on.
Fortunately, for everyone on board as well as those passing through LAX, the man eventually put his pants back on. If you’re hoping for a silver lining, Thompson said passengers bonded over the man’s head-scratching behavior.
She also gave a shoutout to the flight attendant for staying composed throughout it all.
Just landed. 2 hours in he stood up and took 4 mini bottles of wine from the cart. Then he fell asleep. Then 6 hours in he got cold so PUT ON HIS PUFFY JACKET pic.twitter.com/wNFq9L2bkH
Finally, his pants went back on. Good news: nothing bonds a group of passengers like a man half naked in your section. Shout out to the flight attendant who slipped me extra wine and did keep checking in to make sure I was good.
The incident comes just one month after an Air India passenger stripped naked in protest on a flight from Dubai to Lucknow, India.
Last year, an Alaska Airlines passenger removed his clothes and ran the length of the cabin before being tackled and locked in the bathroom.
