Major debate sparked after furious woman is filmed accusing plane passenger of ‘pushing her seat’

Major debate sparked after furious woman is filmed accusing plane passenger of ‘pushing her seat’

The woman gave a fellow passenger a serious dressing down for allegedly pushing into the back of her reclined seat.

Plane etiquette is subjective - some people fall over themselves to ensure everyone has a pleasant flight, while others prioritise their own comfort.

Inevitably, the two don't mix well - and often result in verbal warfare while travelling through the skies.

Just take a look at this woman:

This furious holidaymaker has been filmed giving the row behind her a serious dressing down after a row over a reclined seat.

The clip circulating on X, formerly known as Twitter, has since gone viral as people started to debate who was in the right.

Apparently, the angry woman had reclined her seat for the duration of the journey.

This didn't go down well with the woman sat behind her, who allegedly made her annoyance clear by nudging the traveller in the back.

Tensions boiled over when passengers prepared to depart the packed plane and the blonde verbally unleashed her rage.

The clip shows the woman, who is wearing a bag pack, spin round to the passenger in the row behind her.

She yells: "The whole trip she pushed my seat! You seen it, you know she did. No!"

The ruffled woman then repeatedly screams: "I'm allowed to put my seat back!"

The woman insisted she was entitled to recline her seat.

A man accompanying the squashed lady tries to diffuse the situation, but was drowned out by the constant complaining.

It is not clear from the footage when the incident took place or with what airline.

The video was shared on the internet alongside the caption: "She's allowed to put her seat back. You don't get to kick it repeatedly just because you want more space."

It soon spread like wildfire as social media users chimed in on the debate over whether it's okay to recline your plane seat.

And more importantly - if you can retaliate when someone does it to you.

One person said: "I'm definitely team recline! When did using the features that come with the seat become taboo?"

Another wrote: "Good on her! Sometimes I barely get any sleep the night before a flight and I absolutely need to sleep on the plane, so I'm reclining."

A third added: "I don't get it. I'm 6 feet tall and don't care if people recline. It reclines for a reason."

But others said the woman needs a refresher on plane etiquette, saying not reclining your seat was an unspoken rule of travel.

One said: "She pushed your seat because you pushed it back and she couldn't move."

Another commented: "Remove recline from economy, please. It's so little gain for so much loss for the person behind you."

A third joked: "If you wanna recline, then you're getting a knee pillow in your back."

And a fourth chimed in: "They should NOT allow people to put their seat back IMO. It's just ridiculous how little space one has on a plane to begin with, to have even less of that is SILLY."

There was a voice of reason among the mayhem in the comment section, who pointed out: "We fighting each other when its the airlines that don't give us space."
