She Refused to Switch Seats With a Middle Aged Woman Who Wanted to Be Near Her Boyfriend, So the Woman Sat on His Lap the Whole Time!

A 26-year-old traveler on a 9-hour flight from Rome to New Jersey faces criticism from a middle-aged woman for not switching seats with her boyfriend, despite being woken up 5 times during the flight and being talked about loudly behind her back during deboarding.

She Tried to be Prepared

When 26-year-old Sarah boarded her 9-hour flight from Rome to New Jersey, she had chosen a window seat so she could easily sleep and prepare for work the next day.

However, her plans were disrupted when a 45-year-old man tapped her on the shoulder and asked if she would switch seats with his girlfriend, who was seated in the middle of the middle aisle.

Knowing that it would be impossible to sleep in that seat, Sarah politely declined and said that she wanted to sit in the seat she had chosen. Despite this, the girlfriend proceeded to stand up hourly and glare at Sarah from her seat several rows away.

She then proceeded to come over to her boyfriend’s seat hourly and sit on his lap, talking very loudly and waking Sarah up 5 separate times.

The lights were out in the cabin, and everyone was trying to sleep, but the girlfriend persisted despite the flight attendants telling her to move. After the flight, Sarah found herself deboarding behind the girlfriend, who was loudly talking about her and saying that Sarah had ruined her flight by not switching seats.

Frustrated and Confused

Feeling frustrated and confused, Sarah wondered if she was the jerk for not switching seats. She felt that if it had been a child and parent separated, she probably would have done it due to the 9-hour flight, but she didn’t think their lack of planning and choice of cheaper seats should have been her problem.

Sarah explained, “I don’t understand why a middle-aged woman is throwing a hissy fit over her own choice of seats. If it were a child and parent separated, I probably would have done it due to the flight being 9 hours… but I don’t think their lack of planning and choice of cheaper seats should have been made to be my problem. I don’t get why I was in the wrong for wanting to sit in my seat.”

She Felt Annoyed

Despite feeling like she was in the right, Sarah couldn’t help but feel annoyed by the girlfriend’s behavior. She felt that it was unfair to disrupt her sleep and then talk about her behind her back. In the end, Sarah realized that she couldn’t control other people’s behavior, but she could control her own. She knew that she had done what was best for her, and that was all that mattered.

The Internet Responded

This commenter wrote, “People shouldn’t be shocked when someone doesn’t want to switch their good seat for a crappy cheaper-fare middle seat. And that couple knew that, because they also could have offered the guy’s nice aisle seat to one of the passengers next to the woman, if they wanted to sit together so badly.”

Another person wrote, “You might want to complain to the airline about this because the flight attendants should have been more vigilant about immediately stopping her from this behavior, requesting air marshal assistance if needed. Disrupting flights can be illegal. The airline will probably throw you some extra mileage points.”

A Final Comment

This last person commented, “As usual, they are unwilling to switch with the people with the bad seats to sit next to each other, their plan was just to demand free stuff, and they feel entitled to it. You should have suggested to him that he move to her and that should shut most people up, then loudly complained about their insane/illegal behavior to the flight attendants.”
