As we all know, one of the most commonly condemned behaviors on flights is to try to get other passengers to give up premium seats because they want to sit next to a friend. By a fictional scammer trying to buy a cheap seat.[insert any excuse here].”

It’s very infuriating to think that you can only pay $150 for a flight, but seeing airline tickets jump up to more than double that amount for the privilege of bringing a carry-on suitcase, it’s maddening to humans. It’s the nature of the airline industry to have the right legroom.

But Christina didn’t have it on her flight from Hawaii to Seattle.

“Let me tell you another story about changing seats. I’m back in premium economy, which gives me unlimited drinks and snacks, which was great.”

She continued, “I was sitting in the window seat and right next to me in the middle seat was a small Asian woman, I think she was Japanese. There was another person in the seat, so the aisle seat is like traveling with another woman, and her mate says I want to sit next to her friend.”

It was around this time that I was asked to switch seats, and said, “She looked at the little Japanese lady next to me and said let’s switch seats. I’m 26 again, and that’s okay. Or we’re in Premium Economy’, we’re like Row 8 with all unlimited drinks and snacks. “

It turned out that the person sitting in the back of the plane was trying to upgrade without paying for the upgrade. “So the lady next to me knows we’re changing seats? Well, okay, right?”

It was at this moment that TikToker knew it had to intervene after seeing a polite elderly person being taken advantage of.

It doesn’t matter if she made it up or not. Because neither TikToker nor the little Asian woman sitting next to her had to explain anything to this woman.

“I looked at the Asian woman next to me and started speaking in Cantonese. It seems like the wrong language for her, but she’s not Asian and I can’t tell the difference. ”

“And the Asian woman looked at me and said yes. Then she answered me in Japanese. I said, uhm, yes. I looked up at the woman still standing there and said, I’m fine. We go on, why don’t we go back to row 26, where you belong, to talk about you in our language?”
