ONE WOMEN refuses to give up an empty seat on a plane for a group of friends to sit with – sharing an opinion on whether she should or not.
Tiktok user Shelby O’Connor shared a video that shows she is sitting in an empty seat on the plane, wearing a mask.
“When someone asks if I’d be willing to give up a seat with an empty row so they can sit with their friend,” she wrote.
Then she pulled down her mask and said, “No.”
Shelby captioned the video: “Lol like how am I supposed to sleep?”
The video has been viewed 1.1 million times and has mixed reviews from viewers, with some arguing her refusal to move is entirely justified and others saying she should. give up his seat.
One person wrote: “The audacity of those requesting a change of assigned seat.”
Another comment: “I don’t understand what happens when people ask to move – like we paid for our seats and we chose them for a reason.”
Another wrote: “Those asking to sit next to their friends, should buy a seat first.”
Fourth sentence: “If someone wanted a better seat, they should have booked it earlier. The other seats are PAID and no one is obligated to give them up.”
But others argued that Shelby was pampered and should have moved out so the group could sit together.
Someone asked: “Why do you have to arrange a whole row of seats for yourself? If they want to sit together, you should let them – you don’t own the chair.”
Another agreed, saying: “Half the time it doesn’t really matter whether you’re sitting in one chair or the other. I always move when a parent asks to be with their child.”
This is not the first time this has happened – a European exchange student in the US have a similar problem on a late night flight.
Other visitors then “talked” about them afterward, with many saying they were on their side.
If you want to have a row yourself in flight, a travel expert has revealed how.
A frequent flyer has revealed how he and his wife always sit together on the planeeven if they booked spaced apart.
And one Briton recently shared his strange experience of being the only person on the 8 hour flight – and he’s treated like royalty.
