From whiffy feet bared in the air to chewing gum-encrusted pillows and a discarded condom under a life jacket, life as a flight attendant is not what it used to be.
One glimpse at the Facebook group and Instagram feed #PassengerShaming is more than enough to convince us that the golden age of flying is gone forever.
The hashtag campaign was launched to lay bare the dirty habits of flight passengers the world over, with attendants getting their own back on their shameless charges by submitting photos. Irate passengers who are fed up with their flying companions get to vent their frustration in a similar way.
"Are these assholes serious?" reads a mission statement on #PassengerShaming's Facebook page. "Photos taken by anonymous flight attendants & passengers from all over the world. Don't end up here."
Instagram: We wouldn't fancy cleaning this...
Instagram: Dirty nappies, anyone?
The photos, posted on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, unveil all manner of anti-social behaviour, from the woman whose hair rests over the TV screen behind her to the person who casually dropped an open condom on the floor.
Other photos on Instagram show passengers wandering around in pants with their bum cheeks on display and lying with their hairy legs right across the aisle.

Rants of a Sassy Stew blogger Shawn Kathleen (not her real name) played a key part in encouraging her fellow flight attendants to throw bad passenger behaviour into the spotlight by posting their photos online under #passengershaming.
"Aviation is a very close-knit community," the anonymous blogger told the New York Post. "We get each other, because we’re living the same lifestyle."
Instagram: yum, chewing gum and a pillow - a killer combination...
Instagram: Put your feet in the air like you just don't care...
As part of her drive to reveal the inner workings of the flight attendant industry, Kathleen has also started up a mile-high selfies campaign under the hashtag #crewlife.
She believes the photos, which show air attendants posing in funny and sometimes provocative guises on-board their aircraft, will draw air attendants even closer together and create a sense of camaraderie in the industry.

However, critics have raised questions over whether a flight attendant taking selfies in uniform would comply with the notoriously strict image policy of many airlines.
"When I go to my Instagram feed and see [flight attendants] posting pictures in uniforms, I can’t believe they do that," says flight attendant Heather Poole, author of Cruising Attitude.
"It’s a big deal. The airlines protect their image, everything is very strict. You could lose your job."

Whether right or wrong, the photos certainly cast an interesting light on the inner workings of life as a flight attendant - both good and bad.
