Passenger P.O.’d Over Seat Replacement

April 29, 2010

in Passenger Stories

A very rude and obnoxious passenger was on my flight and he made it hell.

My girlfriend and I were returning back to NYC from Singapore going through Heathrow a total of 20+hours, 13hours from Singapore to London. My girlfriend broke her foot while visiting my family over here, and was placed in the bulkhead aisle where the man was supposed to sit. So I suggested that he sit next to her in the seat I was placed in and that I move to the seat directly behind my girlfriend so he would have the extra leg space.

But no, it wasn’t good enough, he wanted that one specific seat and was yelling at my girlfriend and calling her profane names that I don’t ever want to repeat. My girlfriend then moved over to the next seat despite the discomfort.

I thought it was over then… wrong.

The next thing I hear is my girlfriend screaming because the man decided to spread his legs all the way out, putting pressure on her foot, and saying that he paid for the space and deserved it, that my girlfriend should stop whining and screaming, and that she was faking.

This was completely rude and extremely uncalled for. I asked him to stop and told him that his behavior was unacceptable and that I would call security once we landed if I heard him being unacceptable again.

I wasn’t alone; the passenger next to me congratulated me and applauded the fact that I told him to stop, and her husband (army) had a word with him also and put him in his place.

After that there were no more problems, and the passenger was very quiet for the rest of the flight. He never apologized for his behavior though.
