A Manipulative Man Kept Harassing Her to Switch Seats to Accommodate a Young Family, But She Was Fed Up When He Started Spreading Lies

A woman recently asked for advice about a situation aboard a long-haul flight. She’d purposefully booked an aisle seat, but was she right to refuse to move so that a family could sit together? Here’s what she had to say:

She Was Prepared

“This was my second 8-hour flight on my way home from Africa via Dubai. I had booked an aisle seat so I could get up without bothering others, and a special meal due to health requirements. I boarded the plane, found my seat, and settled in.”

It didn’t take long for the woman’s comfort to be disrupted. A family with three children got on the plane, and the father asked if she would consider switching seats with him so that they could all sit together. At first, she didn’t mind, but she was about to get an unwelcome surprise.

The Alternative Was A Middle Seat

Although she wasn’t opposed to helping others, she had specifically booked an aisle seat. It was more convenient for everybody if she had one. She wasn’t going to give it up—not for anybody.

“Another passenger then gets up and says he has a seat in the back that I can move to (no idea how), and I said no. I said that I had booked my seat and ordered a dietary meal, and there was no way I was moving to a middle seat.”

The other passenger started to criticize the woman for refusing to move. He couldn’t believe that she was selfishly preventing a family from sitting together. Couldn’t she see how entitled she was being?

She had purchased an aisle seat for a reason, and she wasn’t going to move until hell froze over. The altercation soon attracted the attention of the entire cabin, but she wasn’t about to back down. She knew her rights.

Alternative seats were found for the family, but the other passenger wasn’t ready to end his vendetta. He told the family, “She thought her seat was too special, so she wouldn’t let you sit together.” She thought that was really out of line.

The woman told him to mind his own business. She felt exhausted from all of the flying, and she couldn’t take any more arguing. Why couldn’t anybody understand that she had a reason for wanting to stay where she was?

Should She Have Moved?

She could see why people thought she was being unreasonable, but she’d wanted an aisle seat for a reason. She had a special need for one. Even if she hadn’t, she had specifically paid for the privilege. Why should she be forced to move because someone else had been disorganized?

One person thought the woman had been reasonable: “If the family wanted to be together, they could have paid to do so.”

Another person held a similar position. They said, “I’m tired of entitled people thinking someone should sacrifice for them. If they wanted to be seated together, they should’ve booked seats together. Not your problem.”
