Bad behavior on planes in Asia has once again made headlines and a video of a man on an AirAsia flight from Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia to Hanoi in Vietnam has gone viral.

A young man was heavily criticized online after a video of him picking dried skin from his feet and dropping it on the floor of the crowded plane went viral on Sunday afternoon.

The man was filmed putting his right foot against the seat in front and picking his toenails, said Jade Thomas, an Australian passenger who shot the video. The man showed no concern about hygiene or the discomfort he was causing his fellow passengers said Thomas, who was returning to her home in Vietnam via Kuala Lumpur after visiting Bali with her boyfriend. London tabloid The Sun carried a report of the incident.

Thomas said she also noticed other bad behavior on the plane such as shouting, loud burping and passengers getting their hand luggage before the seatbelt sign was switched off.
