The incident raises questions about the boundaries of personal space

In an age where social media has the power to turn ordinary moments into viral sensations, a recent video capturing an unusual in-flight incident has taken the internet by storm. The footage shows a passenger seemingly taking in-flight entertainment to a whole new level by blocking their neighbour’s TV screen. The incident raises questions about the boundaries of personal space and in-flight etiquette, highlighting the challenges of navigating shared spaces at 35,000 feet.

The video, shared on Reddit by @d_p_e_k, shows a passenger reclining their seat and using their hands to cover the screen of the person sitting behind them. The incident occurred during a commercial flight, leaving viewers both amused and perplexed by the audacity of such behaviour. The video was captured while on a long-haul flight. 

The caption of the video reads, “The person sat in front of my cousin on his long-haul flight…”

Social media users were quick to express their opinions on the matter, with many condemning the actions of the seat-blocking passenger. Some found the incident humorous, while others viewed it as a serious breach of in-flight etiquette. The video sparked a heated debate about the unwritten rules that govern behaviour in shared spaces, especially on airplanes where personal space is limited.

Commenting on the video, a user suggested a diabolical way to make the problem go away. “Fake sneeze and flick some water on him.”

Another user wrote, “I would’ve wiped a booger on his hands,” another user wrote. 

“Communicate. It’s not that hard to politely ask that they stop whatever’s causing the issue. Usually, it’s just a simple mistake and they’ll apologize and stop,” the third user wrote. 

“our cousin should have called a flight attendant and tell the ‘hands’ to stay on his side,” the fourth user suggested. 

The fifth user wrote, “I don’t understand why people think documenting a problem and resolving it are mutually exclusive. Assuming this is real, if faced with this issue I would have recorded it out of sheer amazement of this person’s rudeness and/or ignorance, then asked them to stop. Who’s to say OP’s cousin didn’t do the same thing?”

The airline has not reacted to the video yet.
