Passenger Declines Seat Change Request for Pregnant Woman on Flight

Ultimate Guide to Surviving Long-Haul Flights: Tips for Comfort and Well-Being

A man who refused to switch seats with a pregnant woman on his flight has received praise. A Reddit user named Michael Kelly recently revealed that he was traveling alone to visit family over the holidays and that he had taken great care to select a seat near the lavatory, along the aisle.

Just before we boarded, a woman asked me to give up my seat so she could sit closer to the lavatory. She didn’t seem upset about being pregnant,” he wrote.

“I did not feel it was fair to demand I move from the seat I planned for and paid for, especially since she had not booked an aisle seat herself in advance,” he said.

The pregnant woman requested an aisle seat, but none was available, according to the social media user, and the flight attendants did nothing to help fix the issue.

She should have made reservations for the seat she truly desired before boarding the flight. She seemed to have assumed that she wouldn’t be responsible for the cost because some people were moving. The flight attendants should take responsibility for their failure to step in. No matter how serious your medical concerns are, at some point they should have told her to go back to her seat.

You covered the cost of the seat. She didn’t,” a user commented. Because she believed she was entitled to it as a pregnant woman. That looked like something she could use. But as it happened, she was unable to. another user wrote.
