A COUPLE have revealed how they keep their middle seat free during flights – and it's "rocking" people on TikTok.
A video posted on TikTok shows a woman panning the camera across her three-seated row – revealing her partner rocking what appears to be a baby engulfed in a blanket.
It is, however, a ploy to keep the seat free for extra space during the flight.
The clip, viewed nearly 3 million times, then returns to user olivialynne93, holding her hand to her mouth to hide her amusement.
The video's caption reads: "The things he'll do to keep the middle seat open on an airplane."
Many applauded the handy life hack.
