One of the fun things about travelling is not necessarily the destination but the journey getting there. When travelling by flight, many prefer to book a window seat to enjoy the view of the clouds and the scenery below. The view never gets old.
Since window seats are a hot commodity, they’re almost always sold out first. As such, some will have to make do sitting at the aisle or in between. This passenger, unfortunately, almost got into a fight with someone over a window seat. Here’s what happened:
A netizen who goes by Ayien or @yein654 posted on Twitter yesterday (Wednesday, 2nd March) about his experience with another passenger. “I paid for my seat because I want to sit there,” he said in the caption. According to the post, a passenger apparently tried to steal the seat he paid for. He politely pointed out to the passenger that they were sitting at his seat.
Without any shame or remorse, the passenger suggested to the young man if they can switch seats because they wanted to sit by the window. The netizen rejected the suggestion since he already paid for his window seat. Unfortunately, the other passenger continued to insist to switch seats, saying that it wouldn’t make any difference as the seats were all the same.
Fed up with the passenger, the Twitter user raised his voice at them in a stern manner. This caught the attention of other passengers. “I paid for this seat, why should you get to enjoy it?” he wrote in the post. The passenger then got up and returned to their original seat. The tweet has since gone viral with now over 2.4 million views, 10.8k retweets, and 2.5k quote tweets.
Ayien wasn’t the only one who had this experience as many netizens also shared their stories of how other passengers have stolen their seats on the plane or even on the bus. One netizen even advised calling for the cabin crew if anything like this were to happen again in the future.
We’re glad that a fight didn’t break out over a window seat but let’s be real – wouldn’t you get pissed off if someone stole your a seat you paid for?
