An American social media star is making headlines with popular videos in which she calls out the "worst types" of airline passengers, declaring some people should be imprisoned for their onboard habits.

Christina Najjar, who uses the moniker 'Tinx', has racked up a total of 2.7 million views at the time of writing on the first two videos in a TikTok series she entitled 'Worst things people do when they travel'.

"Here are the things that make you truly an awful traveller," Tinx says at the start of the first clip.

"If you do any of these things, you should take a long hard look at yourself in the mirror before you travel again."

She then lists the different types of airport behaviour she least likes, with humorous complaints about each.

Bare or partially exposed feet

"I don't think open-toe shoes should be allowed on planes," said Tinx.

"If you think about taking off your shoes and socks on an airplane, you deserve jail. I don't want to see them, I don't want to smell them."


"This one is going to be controversial, but I don't like it when strangers talk to me on planes," said Tinx.

"I really don't care about your business trip. No thank you, I would not like to see pictures of your grandchildren.

"Maybe we can have a chatty section and a not chatty section."

Cramming the overhead compartment

"It always baffles me with the [overhead] bins because it's very simple, just don't be an asshole," said Tinx.

"Put your overstuffed suitcase up there and your ugly little personal item in the seat in front of you."

Unpreparedness for security

"It's a security line, you know what's coming. Yet there are still people fumbling around with their laptop like a child who forgot their homework," said Tinx.

"'Do I have to take off my jacket?' Yes, spoiler alert: Yes, you always have to take off your jacket. And please keep the theatrical water chugging to the Uber."

Crowding the departure gate

"They haven't even put up our flights on the little digital board and you are crowding around the gate like it's the stampede from The Lion King," said Tinx.

"[You're] grinding your foot into the ground like you're about to run with the bulls... I got to tell you buddy, we're all going to the same place, we're all getting on the same plane."

Backpack hitters

"If you have one of those hideously large backpacks and insist on wearing it, can you try your utmost not to hit every grandma and child in the aisle seats while you walk to your chair?" asked Tinx.

"I'll never understand how people don't have spatial awareness."

Smelly food

"Have I eaten a tuna salad on a plane? Yes. Do I feel bad about it? Also yes," said Tinx.

"Everyone is allowed one slip-up, OK."
