Travel expert reveals her odd habit on flights that makes other passengers hate her | The Sun

A WOMAN has revealed the strangest thing she does on a flight to pass the time.

Instagram user Samanthabrowntravels confessed her odd habit in a video to her thousands of followers.

In the video, she said: "I can't watch movies on a flight. I can watch other people's movies on a flight. Strange, right? I will watch my seatmates movie. I will stare in between the spaces of the seats in front of me and see what films they're watching."

She confirmed her favourite over-the-shoulder viewing position as the aisle seat diagonally in front of her – especially if she's watching a rom-com because there's plenty of room to stretch out.

She added: "But, here's the strange part. People can sense that I'm watching and they'll look, and I'll be like 'no, no, no' and give them a blank stare that I wasn't watching your film. I was just contemplating in your direction."

In the same video she also explained that she can't watch violent films.

She finished by saying: "Is there anyone else like me?Please?"

More than 190,000 people have viewed the video, and they were quick to open up in the comments.

Another person said: "I thought I was the only one who does this on a flight. Can’t watch my own screen but I watch what everyone else's movies and shows."

Someone else admitted to helping those who lurk behind the aisles: "I always turn on captions so fellow screen peepers can follow along."
