He explained that as soon as he sat down, the woman asked him if he would move to the back of the plane to change seats with her husband, to which he said no.

He wrote: “I bought my seat in row 4B which is in the middle, it may sound strange to buy a middle but I wanted it to be as close to the exit as possible and there were no other seats available.

“The flight was landing at a minor secondary airport that has limited train connections, so if you wanted to catch the best train, you’d have to run off the plane and go through passport control as soon as possible.

“If I missed that train, [the] Another option was to wait an hour and a half, or take a $70 taxi, which is why I paid for that seat.”

“She immediately asks if I can move to row 18 so she can sit with her husband. I just said I paid for the seat and didn’t want to move.

“The whole line was looking at me and I could see the mother texting the husband about me. Eventually no one was sitting next to the husband so she moved on the plane.”

He asked if he was wrong because “everyone was judging him” on the flight even though no one else offered to help the mother.

The post received hundreds of comments and most people agreed that the man did nothing wrong.

One person wrote: “You bought your seat, you didn’t want to move. If I took a flight with my 3 kids and wife and we weren’t all together I wouldn’t mind. People have so much right. You didn’t do anything wrong.”

Another put: “It was your seat, you chose it. You have no obligation to give it to anyone if you don’t want to.”

A third said, “Their lack of preparation is not your fault. They were stingy and hoping to trick/persuade someone into moving.”

However, some felt that she should have thought about the mother’s situation.

One person asked, “I understand you paid for that. Exactly. I nod, but really? Why couldn’t you do someone a favor? Have you ever been in a position where you needed a favor and that person just asked you?” rejection?” or was he just rude?

“I just hope that in your future strangers will be more considerate than you.”
