A Woman’s Husband Received First-Class Plane Tickets for His Work Trip, but She Insisted on Having Them and Forced Him to Sit in Coach

A husband received first-class plane tickets from his company and invited his wife on the work trip. They couldn’t afford another first-class ticket, so he suggested that she sit in coach, but she adamantly refused.

The woman explained that her husband had been chosen, by his company, to attend a conference in Miami. She elaborated, “They chose just him and a few of his co-workers out of a ton of candidates so it was quite the honor.”

The husband was given first class flights and was told that he was allowed to bring a spouse on the trip but that the extra plane ticket would not be paid for by the company.

Her husband asked if she wanted to go with him. She explained, “I emphatically told him that I did; I’d never been to Florida in my life and I thought it’d be a fun trip”. They then continued to check online for plane tickets for her.

First class tickets turned out to be too expensive and her husband suggested that she should fly in standard seating rather than first class. He explained that they couldn’t afford it, especially if they also wanted to go out and have fun on their trip together. 

She Was Appalled

The wife was upset that her husband didn’t give her his first class seat, she explained, “I understood that a first class ticket for me would strain our budget a bit but what kind of a man lives it up in first class while his wife sits in coach?” He responded that he had earned the first class seat by working hard and that this was his work trip.

The wife kept insisting that she should have the first-class seat and explained, “He, as a gentleman, should give up his seat for me. We argued but he ultimately agreed to give me his seat.”

She stated that they had a good time on the trip but that her husband had been mad at her since their argument and mentioned that he was upset. She clarified, “I think he’s being a baby and that he should have put his wife’s comfort above his own, especially since he made the choice to be cheap.”

Is She in the Wrong?

Should she have handled the situation differently? Should her husband have given up his seat?

She Turned to the Internet for Support

Many users sided with the husband, pointing out the selfishness of the wife. One person commented, “His company comped the first class ticket for him. What kind of wife insists her husband give up the ticket his company paid for on his behalf so she could “live it up a little”?”

Another Gave Their Opinion

“Your husband deserves better. I hope you apologize and start working a side gig so you can afford to replace his first class seat without taking money from the household.”

One Person Shared Their Experience

My husband and I had the exact same situation years ago. When we looked up first class tickets it was shocking. I said “no, I want that money for enjoying my vacation” and I rode in coach.”
