When it comes to changing seats on transport, there are many etiquette rules to consider. If someone has paid more for a specific seat on a train or plane, they probably won’t want to give it up for what they see as a ‘lesser’ option.

This can often cause a fuss, with many feeling they have the right to get the seat they want – no matter what.

One plane passenger shared how they were shocked by the “audacity” of a woman on their flight.

Replying to a Reddit thread about people being annoying when they ask to swap, the anonymous person explained they’d been asked by a mum if they could swap seats to sit next to her toddler.

The passenger was sitting in a bulkhead window spot, while the mum was in the row behind in the middle seat.

They claim they felt it was an “inferior” trade, so they denied the request and stayed sat next to the toddler claiming it was not their problem.

The mum is said to have been unhappy about this – but they say she did not ask anyone else to swap seats, despite seeming to know the other people sat around them.

Their post read: “Had a woman ask me to change on a TPAC flight from Japan. I was bulkhead window and her toddler daughter was in the middle next to me while she was in the middle seat in the row behind me.

“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. Not my problem they didn’t book together. 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.”

Curious Reddit users then asked how the passenger managed sitting next to a toddler for the whole flight.

They added: “The combination of a sleeping pill and the fact that she was very well behaved made it a very pleasant trip. The mother made a nuisance of herself a bit, likely as punishment for me not moving. But once the pill kicked in it was smooth sailing.”
