If you like the window seat on a plane or have ever been stuck in the middle seat, you know that it's never easy to get by the person in the aisle seat, especially if they are asleep.

If you are too timid to wake them up or unable to, an etiquette expert explained to Telegraph Travel that you should face away from the sleeping stranger and side step over them. They stated, "Leaving the row with your bottom facing to the back of the plane is the correct way to shuffle past people."
