Just out of curiosity, I was on an 7.50 am from Istanbul to Brussels this morning. It was an airbus 321. Three seats either side. I was in the aisle seat and the only female in the row of six occupied seats, Of the five men in my row , 3 of them would be classified as obese or morbidly obese. It resulted in some serious snoring.
The snoring was terrible . Without exaggeration. These guys were very loud indeed, I'm not kidding, all five, and snoring in tandem. The overweight gents the loudest. It meant I could not sleep. It was that loud. People in the rows behind were laughing and raising their eyebrows at me as I looked around.. Cabin crew looked and walked on.
It's not a major deal, I sat quietly and said nothing, but how do you deal with it? Should cabin crew do something when snoring is really loud and disturbing other pax? Should I do something as the person in the row with them?
I sat there, very tired, listening to them, wondering,..do we just put up with this? Should cabin crew shake these people gently if their snoring is so loud it disturbs many other people?
I'm curious to know what others have done or would do in this scenario...and thoughts on cabin crew responsibility to ensuring other pax have a peaceful flight.
