Which do you dislike the most, the drunken guy sitting next to you on the airplane, the seat kicker in the back or the lady in the middle seat eating what smells like a garlic sandwich? In its airplane etiquette study, Expedia asked 1,000 U.S. adults to describe the most annoying airline passenger. And the number one response, cited by 67%, was the seat kicker. "Expedia's Airplane Etiquette Study is a lighthearted reminder that few places require more attention to etiquette than the inside of an airplane," John Morrey, vice president and general manager at, said in a statement. "You're in a tight space at 30,000 feet with hundreds of fellow travelers, so even the small things -- helping your neighbor stow a bag or switching seats to put a mom next to her child -- can make a huge difference."

Here is the ranking of annoying airline passengers:

Rear Seat Kicker, 67%
Inattentive Parents, 64%
The Aromatic Passenger, 56%
The Audio Insensitive, talking or music; 51%

The Pungent Foodie, 32%
The Back Seat Grabber, 31%
The Playboy (reads or watches adult content), 30%
The Amorous (inappropriate affection levels), 29%

The Seat Switcher, 13%
