Aftermath of Passenger Sitting on Chocolate on Plane Delights Viewers

A hilarious clip of a plane passenger who found herself in an unsightly situation after discovering chocolate in her seat has left TikTok users in hysterics.

The viral video, which had 1.2 million views at the time of writing, was posted by @moniquevdamm.

A message overlaid on the video read: "Pov: u accidentally sat on a chocolate the entire flight." The footage showed splashes of brown patches in the crotch area of a person wearing white trousers.

The latest viral footage came as air travel climbs back to pre-pandemic levels, having ground to a halt during the height of the COVID-19 outbreak.

More than 2.3 million passengers were reported to have passed through a TSA checkpoint this year as of May 30.

Total passenger traffic globally is "now at 84.2 percent of January 2019 levels," the International Air Transport Association (IATA) said in a March report.

Willie Walsh, the IATA's director general, said in the report that the demand for air travel had a "very healthy start in 2023" and "we have not seen the many economic and geopolitical uncertainties of the day dampening demand for travel."

Overall traveler numbers are expected to reach 4 billion in 2024, exceeding pre-pandemic levels, which would amount to 103 percent of the total numbers reported in 2019, according to a March 2022 report from the IATA.
