This is the « wrong » way I get revenge on the passengers of the plane
It takes ventilation to a whole new level.
Passengers reclining their seats on a plane are generally seen as a plane in the butt – and a traveler has now revealed the ‘evil’ way she takes revenge on those who dare to do so.
The woman – known only as Fiona – aired her troubles on Australian radio show ‘Fitzy & Wippa’ saying she finds the move ‘reckless’ and is getting immediate revenge by facing all the vents in the direction of his traveling companion.
« When you’re traveling economy class and the person in front of you is very inconsiderate and tilts their chair all the way back… You know the air vents up top, you can swing them around, » Fiona explained. « I just rotate it on their face and ride it all the way. »
The radio hosts then shared a clip of Fiona’s phone call on their TikTok page, where it quickly went viral, racking up nearly a million views.
“Would you dare to do that? Fitzy and Wippa asked viewers below the clip. « Is this the most awesome or the most diabolical airplane runway hack? »
People were fiercely divided on whether blasting the air conditioning on the person in front of them was an appropriate form of response.
Some praised the small action, with one enthusiastic admirer: « My new shot! »
A second chimed in, saying, « I’m going to use it because my legs barely fit behind the seats, even when they’re upright. »
However, others claimed it was not rude at all to recline a seat and accused the woman of being petty and having rights.
« I paid for my seat, reclining it, » one detractor quipped before another urged the woman to upgrade to business class if she wanted more space between the seats.
« Why do people get angry [about reclining seats]? It doesn’t even go back much, ”added a third person.
A recent report revealed that those who recline their seat on planes are considered « rude » – but not everyone agrees.
Jacqueline Whitmore, etiquette expert and former flight attendant, told Fox News Digital that « travellers have a right to bow. »
However, she added that there is a polite way to do this, which is to glance back so the person is ready to move the seat.
Whitmore further advises reclining slowly and gently, and only reclining partially if the passenger behind has long legs.
