Airline Passenger Etiquette Video: Woman Falls Asleep on Man in Flight


Video of woman who fell asleep on Steve Cullum’s lap on a commercial passenger flight.

Steve Cullum says he was minding his own business when a female passenger sat next to him, and immediately started falling asleep. First she placed her head on his shoulder, and then on his lap. In his YouTube description of the article, Cullum said he tried lifting her up, shaking her, and even startling her; but none of those techniques worked.

Cullum also said that he wasn’t able to summon a flight attendant because the flight attendants were in seat belts because of turbulence, and had asked passengers not to use the call button unless there was a medical emergency.

Her name is Eileen — no not really, but maybe.
