Flights are beginning to restart around the world, with hopes for travel restarting out of the UK from May 17. For many flight crews, this will mean a return to work and one they may be longing for.

However, that doesn’t mean their job is always the most enjoyable.

Along with meeting passengers and helping jet people off around the world, flight crew also have to deal with some often messy situations.

One point of content, in particular, is the “state” some passengers leave their seats in when they depart the aircraft.

In a dedicated Reddit forum, flight crew shared “the worst condition” they have found a passenger’s seat in.

Many of the crew members who answered were also tasked with cleaning up the foul chaos left behind.

One aircraft cleaner wrote: “I was cleaning an RJ-200 and found a seat with blood on it.

“That’s probably the worst I’ve had to deal with, but I got way more upset over the entire cracker pack or cookie you get being strewn about the cabin in crumb form.”

A second cleaner also emphasised their hatred of food remnants.

“Former RJ cleaner here and I 10,000 percent agree with the crumbs,” they vented.

Another commenter shared story that might leave reader’s stomachs churning at the thought.

“My friends an air stewardess and once had someone be sick on their tray and leave it there the whole flight,” they wrote.

“Other stories are people not knowing how to use the toilet and [defecating] on the lid.” [SIC]

In many cases, seats are left in such a bad state they can’t be cleaned at all.

Instead, airlines must replace the seat itself so that other passengers can comfortably sit there.

One passenger explained their own experience with this kind of scenario.

“Me and my girlfriend got on a pane last year and the bottom part of her seat was missing,” they wrote.

“And before we can ask what’s up we see a mechanic walking up the aisle with a new seat cushion.

“He walks up and says ‘I got a fresh seat for you’.

“We both say thanks and my girlfriend asks: ‘What’s happened to the other one?’

“Without missing a beat the mechanic says: ‘You shouldn’t ever ask that question.'” [SIC]
