FLIGHT attendants have revealed their disgusting method for getting revenge on the passengers they don't like on board their planes.
With the cabin crew in charge of the food and drink supply, it's always in a passenger's interests to treat them nicely.
However, those who annoy the flight attendants could also find themselves on the receiving end of some unsanitary punishment, known to the flight staff as "crop dusting".
Whenever cabin crew need to fart, something which is almost unavoidable during a long flight, they will make sure they hold it in to spare their colleagues any unpleasant odours.
Instead, they wait until they're next to the passengers that have annoyed them the most, which is when they'll let rip.
The technique was revealed in a thread on Reddit, where flight staff were asked: "Is it that common for flight attendants to walk up the aisle and drop a few?"

Some responded, discussing their methods for crop dusting, suggesting we all should be trying harder to treat them with respect when flying to avoid some stinky punishment.
One said: "It’s either fart near passengers or fart near crew.
"I find the passengers who inconvenienced me. Can’t hold it in."
Another added: "Crop dusting belongs in the cabin, next to the most vile of all passengers."

There's a good reason people call it that too, with flights actually making people fart more.
Jacob Rosenberg, a clinical professor at the University of Copenhagen says it is all down to the cabin pressure dropping.
He told the BBC: “The pressure drops and the air must expand into more space.”
According to Jacob, the gas sitting inside the stomach then expands by 30 per cent – and it needs to go somewhere.
Farting on planes is seen as such a problem by some, that they have even proposed drastic measures.
A politician wanted airlines to try and ban farting on planes by giving flight crew more training and changing in-flight meals.
Nairobi MP Lilian Gogo called for new protocol while addressing a Kenyan parliamentary debate on transport in 2019.
Dr Gogo said she had too often fallen victim to someone’s passed wind in plane cabins.
According to Nairobi News, she said: "There is one irritant that is often ignored and this is the level of farting within the aircraft.
"There are passengers who literally irritate fellow passengers by passing bad smell and uncomfortable fart (sic).
"If there is any one given irritant that makes people fight on board, it is the fart. It is terrible within the plane."
People have tried to limit the effects of in-flight flatulence by inventing a banana-shaped foam insert that is worn between the buttocks.
The insert is said to filter out fart smells and has been hailed as a “game changer for air travel”.
The Shreddies Carbonana is the brainchild of Paul O’Leary, who said his invention would "improve passenger comfort for all on board.”
One person who might be interested in wearing the Carbonana is singer Robbie Williams, who once admitted he was forced to "s*** in his hand" after trying to fart quietly during a flight.
He told his wife Ayda Field on podcast The Secret's Out: "I'm very good with not farting on public flights now. Anyway, so I needed to get rid of the gas.
"And what I do is so that nobody can hear it's me, I have a sort of '2 finger silencer' where I just pull the cheek. A semi-lift cheek pull. It's definitely a silencer. I'm 45. I'm really good at this now.
"So I pulled the cheek apart. Let rip and followed through and s*** in my hand."
