Smelly people have been named the most annoying kind of fellow plane passengers, according to a new survey.

Flight booking website Just The Flight asked 5,000 people what type of person they disliked sharing a flight with most.

It listed the 21 least popular flyers, with those that smell and seat kickers coming out at the top of the list.

A huge 59 per cent of those surveyed included people that smell in their list of most hated flyers.

A total of 54 per cent said passengers who kick their seats were the worst, while 53 per cent cited “incredulous parents” as the most irritating people to fly with.

Other unpopular flyers include crying children, people who are rude to flight attendants, and “the drunk”.

The survey was conducted in October, after several people were reported to have been penalised for disorderly behaviour.

One man was arrested in the US last September after accidentally urinating on fellow passengers during a flight between Alaska and Portland.
