Women Board Plane Only To Discover Their Allocated Seats Don't Exist

People have been left in stitches after a woman boarded a flight to find her seats didn't exist anymore. Catch the TikTok here:

Holidaymakers have already been faced with queues all the way into the car park, suggestions to drop their bags off a day early and some flyers have even decided to launch into song in a bid to keep the summer spirit alive.

However, what would you do if you'd queued for hours extra, only to board a plane and find your seats weren't even there?

Well, one woman has taken to TikTok to document her experience on her easyJet flight.

Daisy Barr and her mates managed to make it onto the plane, however, upon stepping onto the aircraft, something was amiss.

The group had reserved seats in row 26. But the row wasn't taken up by other passengers, or in poor condition and dirty, but quite simply, not there.

Accompanied by the only suitable music when faced with such a challenge – the Mission Impossible theme, movie trailer mix – Daisy recorded her friends' faces of confusion, one even making do and simply taking a perch on the floor.

In the comments, Daisy clarified that her and her friends 'didn't stand up during the flight'.

However, she claimed 'no one helped' them find 'some empty seats' and that is was lucky there even were some.

The post has since amassed over one million views, 100,000 likes and hundreds of comments.

Other users have rained in on the post in a mixture of responses, some outraged at the incident, others claiming to have experienced similar situations and most just finding it absolutely hilarious.

One said: "The fact that how many people from the airline would have seen your seat number and they still let you on the plane."

A second joked: "Next time, on come fly with me."

A final suggested easyJet had taken out the row 'to be able to fly with less staff'.

Indeed, last month, the airline company revealed it was planning to remove seats so it can fly with fewer members of crew amid staff shortages. 

However, it's not been determined if this was the issue on Daisy's flight.

In a statement, easyJet told LADbible: "There has been a change in seat configuration on some aircraft this summer for operational reasons and so we reallocated these customers new seats and they flew as planned."
