‘I asked a woman to move from my plane seat and got glares from the cabin crew’

A bloke claims he left fellow passengers enraged after he forced a woman to move out of his seat – including a flight attendant.

The holidaymaker explained that he’d just boarded his passenger jet and was making his way towards his seat number.

But, he grumpily realised that a woman had plonked herself down in his spot.

The man was fuming as he’d chosen the window seat specifically so that he could pull his good around his face, lean on the wall and catch up on some sleep.

He says he told the flight attendant someone was sat in his spot, as he refused to give up his perfect position reports the Mirror.

On Reddit, he explained: "I'm told to just sit in the open aisle seat in the same row.

"At that point I politely told the flight attendant that I'd paid for the window seat and would like to sit in the seat that I'd paid for.

"The woman in my seat is told that she must move from my seat and take the open aisle seat.

"Now I'm the bad guy, the woman in my seat cannot contain how annoyed she is and the flight attendant is giving me the stink eye which continued for the remainder of the flight."

The passenger added: "In addition the flight attendant finds an open window seat for the woman (flight was full) while they both glare at me while she moves to her new seat."

Baffled, the lad asked social media users if he was wrong for insisting the woman shifted out of his paid for seat.

Most people said that he was completely within his rights to do so.

"The flight attendant should have been on your side," one person wrote supportively. "You paid for that seat and you have every right to expect to get what you paid for."

Another went further, claiming they'd report the misplaced passenger to the airline.

"I travel often and it's incredibly annoying how people think they have complete autonomy over where they sit on a flight with assigned seats," they said.

"If you want to be able to choose where you sit as you board the plane fly on an airline that does that, like Southwest.

"Otherwise, sit where ticket tells you to. As far as the flight attendant, I'd report her to the airline."

A third added: "Anytime an airline makes you pay for the seat you want, they better be willing to be sure you get that seat. Stink eye all you want, lady. Pay for a window next time."

It's not the first time someone has asked about their behaviour towards fellow passengers on Reddit.

A man recently explained that he refused to give up his extra legroom seat to a woman's husband when she insisted she needed help with their young baby.

While a 32-year-old woman recently asked Reddit if she was in the wrong for refusing to give up her pre-booked first class chair to an older woman.

Another traveller shared her annoyance at a fellow flyer who pushed their feet into the space below her and wouldn't move them no matter how many times she nudged them.
