The cabin crew employee, who goes by the name HausOfDarling on Reddit, said they had seen everything under the sun squeezed into those pockets.

Ils ont dit: “Never, déjà, ever use or put anything in the seat pocket. They are cleared of rubbish but are never ‘cleaned’.

ils ont continué: “I have pulled out and seen all sorts been pulled out from there.

“Dirty tissues, sick bags, culotte, chaussettes, finger and toenails, gum, half sucked sweets, apple cores, peoples feet

“I’ve never found a severed foot but people seem to curl up into a foetal position by putting their feet in the seat pocket.

“And then next flight you go and put your phone/laptop/iPad in there.”

So the key is to avoid sticking anything inside the back seat pocket, and maybe avoid flicking through the inflight magazine stored in there too.
