Cleanup in aisle 8 please

Lovely, no?? This is an all too typical business class seat area after a trans-Atlantic flight. There are actually FAR worse, this is about average. Would it have killed the seat occupants to perhaps put the used tissues, napkins from their airport meal, plastic wrappers and old newspaper into the large plastic bag they left at their feet?? Do they behave like this at home or in a hotel, just leaving things on the floor?? Am I the only sap that uses the hotel trashcan , or on an aircraft the airsick bag to place rubbish in??

A little tidiness and courtesy to others goes a long way in a shared confined space. I do not care how much you paid for your ticket, your mother does not work here and if she did, she would surely yell at you for this. Oddly enough ( or not) this does not happen when the seats are occupied by Japanese or Scandinavian passengers. Maybe I need to fly there more often....

It just shocks me how people leave the airplane...how about the people that read the newspaper and drop it--page by page--on the floor at their feet? HELLO???

I am going to training in ORD--probably for the same company you fly for...

I must admit, I've seen far far worse... sometimes i'd like to sneak a photo only those flight attendants are always looking! :)
