I've seen naked feet in international First and Business Class, in the latter cases usually propped up against the bulkhead.  Sad

Hell, I fly business class all the time wearing sandals, and they come off but sometimes I have a blanket.

Socks smell worse anyways

I would never do that, and isn't that why they give you those nice little slippers to use?

It is quite common among the passengers to take off their shoes and socks on a long flight in order to relax. When you should really start getting worried is when the pilot and FO start doing it as well!  Silly

It happens all the time. I've forgotten to be disgusted. It gets even more disgusting because most of these people go in the lav with bare feet.

Where I draw the line: I will not let passengers clip their toenails. It does happen, and it IS disgusting.

I personally see no problem with this, but if it was in close proximity of me and their feet stunk, I'd ask them to put their shoes on! He's paid to travel first, I'd be less than happy if I was told I wasn't allowed to have naked feet!

I don't think it's inappropriate or impolite. Just as long as the feet don't stink, then I don't see a problem. If you can endure a 10+ hours flight with your shoes on, then the more power to you...

It isn't uncommon for someone to take their shoes off while on a long flight and if trying to get some sleep. Bare feet are a bit rude though and it could be offensive to people of some faiths to show all or part of your feet like that. More importantly, they could smell. At least use the slippers and if on a long flight consider wearing surgical/compression socks to reduce DVT risks.

And we wouldn't want that! I'm all for civility towards people of all faiths, but good gravy if you lived trying to make sure you NEVER offended ANYONE of ANY faith, you wouldn't ever be able to go out of your house. There are lines, but feet? C'mon, give me a break!

I guess it depends where you live, here in the caribbean many people wear sandals, flip flops etc., so the feet will be exposed, but never would you see a male who is wearing shoes take them off during the flight. In the northern parts of the world I can understand the disdain if one were to take off one's shoes after the feet have been trapped in them for hours.

Yup, depends on where you live. In many countries, especially in hot climates, people don't wear shoes regularly. In India, many people just wear sandals most of the time. And they remove their sandals or slippers as we call them as soon as they sit down in car/bus/train/aircrafts. It would be bad if people who wear shoes 8-10 hours continously, especially in hot weather remove thier shoes. It would stink then. But if people aren't wearing shoes, doesn't matter.

Quoting LTBEWR (Reply 18):

LOL ! Depends on each culture I guess. In India, it is rude if you don't leave your shoes/sandals at the door and go inside wearing them  Smile

In hinduism and islam, whenever you enter a relegious place, you are supposed to remove your footwear and wash your legs if possible before entering the place.

I don't think Etihad management people will be happy to see this photo. It's surely something you don't want other C class passengers from other airlines fly yours.
