Attack on passenger’s personal space: A woman has revealed she was forced to stare out of a plane window after shocking footage showed a male passenger invading her personal space on a flight.
Airplane etiquette is often the source of social media debate, as people have shared complete horror stories, including being asked to switch seats with “right” passengers and changing a baby’s diaper right next to them.
On TikTok, a woman who opted for a window seat shared her flight woes after seeing a male passenger in the middle seat behaving in the most annoying way possible.
In the video, TikToker @sterlingsavannah was filming herself while the man sitting next to her leaned in to take a picture of the plane window.
The man did this several times, not bothering to ask once if he could lean over to take a picture of the view.
The clip has been viewed 5.2 million times and the TikToker revealed in the caption that “the only option was to stare out the window”.
He captioned the video, “Don’t people know personal space? And that you can choose the window seat?”
This clip of people caused the outrage of users and many comments from other TikTok users about what they might do in a similar situation.
One person commented: “I would close the shade and stare into his soul. We used to correct that behavior before landing.”
Another shocked viewer wrote: “I can’t believe that’s not your dad. Who does this?!”
“That’s when you ask, can I take a picture for you instead of you getting into my personal space?” said one TikToker.
Another person added: “The comment section is a bunch of people who don’t understand the fixed answer.”
