Debate Sparks Over a Man Refusing to Give Up a Seat on the Plane for a Couple

When traveling alone on a plane, the seat you sit on doesn’t matter that much. Sure, people might prefer to sit on the aisle or next to the window, but that’s often chosen before even getting on the place. However, when traveling as a couple, it might matter more where you and your partner sit. Some couples manage to pick beforehand and sit next to each other, while others are separated. But there are those people who switch if asked nicely. And then some refuse to swap no matter what.

Man Refuses a Seat Switch

The whole situation was entirely innocent. It just happened that a married couple traveling on Virgin Airlines did not do what many others do beforehand – they didn’t choose seats when buying their tickets. That caused Jay Kross and his wife Zoe to be separated. Zoe was seated by the window, and Jay was across the aisle. He politely asked the man next to his wife if he would switch with him, but the man blatantly refused.

Confusion and Irritation Arose

After the blatant response, Jay was confused. He asked the man to switch an aisle seat with his own – the seats were the same! It was Zoe’s birthday, and he wanted them to be together. Confusion grew to frustration because the guy refused to take the same spot just across the aisle, and when asked, he said there was no problem, but he still wouldn’t move.

A Debate Came Was Comming

Jay posted about this on his TikTok account, where he asks if he’s in the wrong since he was offering the guy the same spot just on the other side of the aisle. This comment sparked a debate in which some defended the man saying the couple should have picked seats beforehand, and others stood up for the couple, saying they would have just moved.

Although some people said the couple was entitled, and it didn’t matter whether it was her birthday, they should have picked before getting on – others defended them. Is it normal not to want to switch your seat with someone, even if it’s virtually the same?
