    I learned something interesting on long international flights. Frequent flyers carry a pair of cheap socks, then during the hours long flight wear them instead of shoes. When the flight ends, the discard the cheap socks by leaving them on the floor of the plane and put on the shoes and socks they got on the plane with.
    Chinese airlines even give you a pair of disposal socks to wear and expect you to discard them on arrival.

    Why did she wedge her socks so far into the space of the passenger in front that they were able to draw on them anyway?

    Do they have a storage area for your shoes as you board the plane? I'm guessing the reason for the socks is so the floor is not contaminated with whatever kind of heebie-jeebies are in the area that you're leaving, and it stays clean.

    And speaking of China, is travel to there still restricted?

    I put my shoes on the floor & under my seat.
    I guess some travel is still restricted in China. Starting to loosen a bit due to people resisting the lockdowns.

    That would seem to defeat the purpose of having a clean pair of disposable socks to walk around the plane, if you walk to your seat with your street shoes on.

    We usually fly into Beijing and check on our condo; maybe stay a day or two, then catch a fast-train to another city for the remainder of the vacation. Fast train has overhead compartment for carry-on luggage and storage at each end of the train car for larger luggage.

    Get to your seat, then remove shoes and put socks inside shoes. Then put on disposable socks. I can do this without my bare feet touching the floor.
