This is one of my worst air travel-and-music nightmares

Flying is stressful. I just want to get to my seat, have enough overhead bin space, and hope that no one takes the middle seat beside me. (I always book an aisle so I can get in and out of my seat whenever I want.) I hunker down in the most comfortable position I can find and leave me alone until we land.

There are so many things you can’t avoid in economy: Cramped seats. Reduced in-flight service. Reclining seats. Crying babies and seat-kicking toddlers. And hell is other people.

Take a look at this viral clip of women on a TUI flight to…somewhere. This behavior has gone viral. Note the reaction of fellow passengers in the background.

  • I could do without shared content from aggrieved men’s-rights accounts here, thanks. (It’s not really a coincidence that it takes about ten seconds of scrolling down from that video to find Andrew Tate posing with a car and bile-spewing from accounts with names like “Gays Against Groomers”.)
