They wrote on the community sharing site: “I took a plane home yesterday. I have a nice aisle seat, and to my left is a mother and her six-year-old son.

“This man comes and taps me on the shoulder and asks if I can switch places with him.

“He tells me that he is in the back of the plane and wants to sit with his family as this is his son’s first flight and he said his seat is also an aisle seat.

“I’ve been told I’m safe, so I go to the back of the plane and to his seat and there’s this really obese guy sitting in the middle.

“First he has the armrests up and when I sit down he puts them down, but he’s starting to pour into my seat as well as the guys to his right.

“It was a six hour flight and I wouldn’t be uncomfortable for that long.

“I go back to my dad and I say, ‘Look man, I want to kick my seat back,’ and he starts acting stupid as to why. I say ‘Dude, no’. Then he starts to say ‘Please, I want to sit with my son’.

“I just go up to the flight attendant and say, ‘This guy is sitting in my seat and he’s refusing to leave.’ The flight attendant confronts him and he goes back to his old chair.

“For the rest of the flight, the guy’s son and wife basically stare at me like they hate me. I just plug in my Airpods and keep to myself for the rest of the flight.”

The post was voted on almost 4,000 times and received 500 comments from people all agreeing that the passenger did nothing wrong and that the father should have paid to reserve a seat with his family if it was important to him .

One person wrote: “You initially thought you were being asked to swap your seat for a similar seat. When you found out that wasn’t the case, you were no longer interested in the deal.

“You’re not the asshole – having children doesn’t automatically give people more rights than those around them.”

Another wrote: “Families who want to sit together should pay the fee for it.”

A third wrote: “He knowingly omitted information to make his request seem more reasonable than it was. If he wanted family seats, he should have paid for it.”

Someone else warned flyers that they should Never agree to a seat swap without checking the chair they will go to first.

They wrote: “As a frequent flyer, NEVER give up your seat until you have confirmed that you will be comfortable in the other seat.

“You don’t have to give up a spot for anyone. Yes sometimes it’s nice but no need to suffer because someone else didn’t book properly.”
