25 People Who Expected a Calm Trip, but Everything Took a Crazy Turn

According to the Federal Aviation Administration, they handle more than 43,000 flights daily. If we assume that each flight carries about 150 passengers on average, the amount of people traveling within one day is enormous. And there’s a small number of those who get lucky enough to see something extraordinary during their trips. Whether that’s a monkey passenger or Darth Vader himself, the situations in our compilation will definitely keep your jaw on the floor.

Bright Side loves traveling — more than that, we like having fun while traveling. That’s why we’ve compiled a set of crazy photos of things spotted during the trips of various Internet users. Don’t miss our interesting bonus at the end of the article!
