After some Twitter users suggested that the passenger could be differently-abled and unable to reach the screen, Ms Burke confirmed that wasn't the case.
"The photographer confirms that she saw him walk on and off the plane, carrying his own bag. He just likes to watch TV with his bare feet," she wrote.
