  • On February 18, an Air France passenger named Lizzie Thompson took to Twitter after she said that a man on her flight from Paris, France, to Los Angeles, California, removed his pants and socks while mid-air.
  • In a tweet, Thompson said that a flight attendant offered to move her seat after she alerted him of the pants-less passenger.
  • When Thompson suggested that the employee ask the man to put his pants back on, she said the flight attendant "just shrugged."
  • Thompson also claimed that the man asked another rider to play ukulele music with him, and later took four mini bottles of wine from a food cart before falling asleep.

An Air France passenger took to Twitter on Monday after she says a man on her flight from Paris, France, to Los Angeles, California, removed his pants and socks while in mid-air.

According to tweets from passenger Lizzie Thompson, the man allegedly removed his pants in a bathroom before takeoff, and later removed his shoes and socks. Thompson claimed that the passenger - who she said was sitting in the seat across from her - spent the remainder of the flight in his boxers.

Thompson shared photos of the alleged incident on Twitter.

After removing some of his clothes, the man attempted to play music with another passenger who was carrying a ukulele onboard, according to Thompson.

According to her tweets, Thompson eventually alerted a flight attendant about the pants-less man, and the employee offered to move her seat.

Thompson said that she didn't want to lose the bulkhead legroom she had, and therefore asked the attendant if he could ask the man to put his pants back on. According to Thompson, the flight attendant "just shrugged."

Two hours into the flight, Thompson claims the man stood up, picked up four mini bottles of wine, and then fell asleep. Four hours later, she said he put on a puffy coat, but still chose to sit in his boxers. 

To wrap up her Twitter thread, Thompson answered a few of the most commonly asked questions she received about her alleged experience and confirmed he didn't play the ukulele.

Representatives for Lizzie Thompson and Air France did not immediately reply to INSIDER's requests for comment.
