In its second annual airplane etiquette study, Expedia asked 1,000 U.S. adults to describe THE most annoying airline passenger. And the No. 1 response, cited by 67 percent, was the seat kicker. Following close in the No. 2 spot was inattentive parents, cited by 64 percent.

"Expedia's Airplane Etiquette Study is a lighthearted reminder that few places require more attention to etiquette than the inside of an airplane," John Morrey, vice president and general manager at Expedia.com, said in a statement.
