It looks like a plane passenger was not having it after a mother had

“the audacity”

to ask for a seat swap so she could sit beside her child, reports the New York Post. A resurfaced Reddit clip that has now gone viral reveals a baffled plane passenger saying that it’s

“not my problem they didn’t book together”

when asked to switch seats so a mother can sit next to her child. 

The passenger, who hasn’t been identified, was on a flight from Japan. They sat at a window seat while the child sat in the middle seat. 

The passenger wrote,

“She asked me – and just me – to switch with her so she could have my window seat (next to her daughter) and I’d take her middle seat a row back…Hell to the f–k no.”

The pissed-off flyer continued to write,

“Worse is we were surrounded by others from her tour group that she could’ve asked for a three-way trade instead. Or the tour operator… The audacity to ask just me and expect an inferior trade on my side.”

Users swarmed the comment section of the Reddit post. One user said,

“My rule of thumb is: 1). Will only change an aisle for an aisle (my preference). 2). Will never change an aisle or a window for a middle 3). Will never change if I had to spend extra money to get my seat.”

While another user seemed to be disappointed by the fact that the flyer felt comfortable sitting next to

“someone else’s unaccompanied toddler”

as opposed to just moving. 

#Clique, do you think this flyer was petty for not moving?
