Cape Town - It's no new phenomenon. But since the online 'name-and-shame' platform Shameless Passengers kicked off in 2014, it seems passengers' in-flight shenanigans have just gotten worse.
Outraged economy class passengers in 2016 took to social media again as a last resort to maintain some dignity and humanity 33 000ft up, but with little success.
Remember earlier this year when a poor passenger was so traumatised by a fellow farting flyer that he desperate scribbled a note to the air hostess in a bid to save himself?

It didn't work, and his horrid flight landed him a spot in our 2016 round-up of the Worst of Aviation this year.

Here are some of the worst scenarios travellers had to face in 2016.
