"Dear @airtransat What more can I say? As if it was not enough to find fresh blood on the seat in front of me, one of your flight attendants provided me with disinfectant wipes to wipe it off with my bare hands. Thank God for common sense, I asked for gloves and wiped the blood off as told. Next time, feel free to call on me to help you clean the entire plane so this never happens again," wrote X user @birgitomo as she shared about the incident.

A third commented, "I always bring disinfectant wipes with me on an aeroplane. Always."

"I always carry hospital-grade wipes and clean my airplane seat and tray. The wipes inevitably end up black. Doesn’t matter which airline," posted a fourth.

A fifth said, "My husband and I always bring disinfectant wipes and wipe down the entire area and then put covers on our trays. And we wear masks."
