Airline passenger says he wanted to slap man who refused to switch seats so he could sit by his wife
A man who was unable to book two airline seats next to each other so he could sit next to his wife was left frustrated after a fellow passenger refused to swap seats.
J Kloss and his wife, Zoe, were separated in the business class section of their Virgin Australia Airlines flight after they were unable to book two seats next to each other. Jay was in the aisle while Zoe sat by the window in the same row but on the opposite side of the plane.
Business class had eight seats and no middle seat.

Jay posted a video on TikTok detailing the incident and asked his followers if he was wrong to request other passengers to change seats.
“I wanted to slap him,” he said.
He said that when he booked the flight, both the second aisle and window seats were taken. Jay admitted that he would be able to swap seats with a passenger because that person would end up with the same seat on the other side of the plane.
“Never mind, Zoe and I are sitting together…wrong,” Jay said.

As the couple boarded the plane, Jay said he politely asked the man in the aisle seat, “Hey bro, would you mind moving so I can sit with my missus? It’s her birthday.”
“And he just looks at me and doesn’t answer,” Jay continued. “Then he’s like, ‘No. I won’t. But I’ll sit here,'” referring to Zoe’s window seat.
However, Jay explained, Zoe always sat by a window to avoid nausea.
“So, he’ll put us on either side of the aisle for no reason. It’s the same seat,” Jay said. “So anyway, I’m like, ‘Bro, really? You sure you can’t switch seats with us?’ And he doesn’t answer me.”
Zoe then took her seat next to the man by the window and asked him if there was a problem and if it was possible to change seats as it was her birthday and she wanted to sit with her husband.

“No, no problem. Just not moving,” the man allegedly told her.
Jay then asked his followers, “Am I missing something? Can someone explain to me what’s going on here? It’s the same seat, just on a different side of the aisle.”
But the pair ended up sitting next to each other, as the man in the window seat next to Jay offered to switch with Zoe.

Comments on the video pretty much pushed back the idea that the man should have switched seats with Jay.

Many users said the couple should have booked the seats they wanted and not assumed the man would give up his seat to accommodate them, even though it was Zoe’s birthday.
