“Shock, horror, and utter disbelief!”

When in transit on a plane, the experience can often be hit or miss. Situations can often turn sour very quickly… and so can the smells!

After Carmen Reddy headed to Joburg for the Soweto Derby, she decided to eat an entire burger while she was in the middle seat. Her fellow comrades on either side were not impressed. 

This begs the question: Is it acceptable to chow some food on a plane, especially when you’re snug between passengers?
