A message overlaid on the video read: “Pov: u accidentally sat on a chocolate the entire flight.” The footage showed splashes of brown patches in the crotch area of a person wearing white trousers.
The latest viral footage came as air travel climbs back to pre-pandemic levels, having ground to a halt during the height of the COVID-19 outbreak.
More than 2.3 million passengers were reported to have passed through a TSA checkpoint this year as of May 30.
Total passenger traffic globally is “now at 84.2 percent of January 2019 levels,” the International Air Transport Association (IATA) said in a March report.
Willie Walsh, the IATA’s director general, said in the report that the demand for air travel had a “very healthy start in 2023” and “we have not seen the many economic and geopolitical uncertainties of the day dampening demand for travel.”
Overall traveler numbers are expected to reach 4 billion in 2024, exceeding pre-pandemic levels, which would amount to 103 percent of the total numbers reported in 2019, according to a March 2022 report from the IATA.
Giggling was heard in the latest viral TikTok clip before a woman was seen in hysterics, holding her hand to her mouth. Another woman beside her was also seen laughing before the clip ended.
In a caption shared with the poster, the TikToker wrote: “still haven’t recovered from this.”
Several TikTokers were left in stitches over the latest video, some of whom could relate to the original poster’s experience.
Jennifer wrote: “That happened to me too and my pants were WHITE,” while Leahhhbeauty said: “I DID THIS ONCE.”
User marykane wrote: “No this is so funny.”
