A MUM has revealed how to get passengers to swap seats during a flight if you get split up from your kids.
When booking flights, some airlines may not have seats together, despite rules not letting minors sit by themselves.
However, getting passengers to switch seats can be difficult, especially if they have booked their own window or aisle seat for a reason.
Mum Ana Lynn Cook explained how to solve the problem without the drama onboard.
She told her TikTok followers: "When we booked this flight, it wouldn't let us select our seats for some reason so our family wasn't sitting together.
"When we got to the gate we tried to get them to see if they could move us around – they couldn't.

I refused when a woman demanded I switch seats on the plane – who’s right?
"So we are going to ask the person who is sitting in this seat if they want to switch."
She showed the seat they couldn't book, which was a middle seat between her partner and kids, while she was sitting in a legroom seat with a lot more room.
Ana continued: "The guy who was sitting in this seat came – you could see in his face 'I'm sitting here with all these kids?'
"I was like 'do you want to switch seats? it has more legroom.'"
