A PASSENGER who refused to let a woman get off their plane first has received support online, after the pair clashed over an in-flight film.
The 22-year-old woman was on a flight when another female passenger sat behind her asked if she could change the film she was watching, so she wouldn't give away any spoilers.
The passenger refused to change her movie and then when the flight landed, she prevented the woman from getting off the plane first, while grabbing her luggage from the overhead lockers.
The passenger reached out to social media site Reddit to ask if her behaviour had been unreasonable.
She wrote: "Today was the first time I've ever had a negative encounter during a flight.
"It's important to note that I had an aisle seat for this and flew Delta that gives you the option to select your seat.

"I started playing a movie, Unchartered with Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg, and the flight took off and maybe 10 minutes into it, I get tapped on my shoulder by a woman who is in the aisle behind me and in the aisle seat across from me.
"I ask her if everything is okay and she tells me to turn my movie off. Confused, I asked her why.
"She said it was because she has not seen the movie and didn't want to see my screen and see any spoilers.
"I told her that she could watch it on her screen and she said no because she wanted to watch a different movie.

"I responded that I was going to keep watching my movie. She huffed and she started to complain, but I just ignored her.
"Once we landed, she immediately jumped from her seat and grabbed her bags and blocked the aisle for all those behind her.
"The seats were towards the back of the plane so I just stayed seated as did my everyone else in my aisle and the aisle across from us.
"By the time it got to our aisle, I stood up and then began to grab my bag from the overhead bin.
"At the same time I did this, the lady from earlier tried to start walking and then started yelling at me for cutting her off and I should let her go.
"By this time I was tired and ready to get off the plane and said, 'ma'am if you were in such a rush to get off, then you should have a picked a seat closer to the front or got an upgraded seat'.
"She rolled her eyes and called me a 'stuck up b****' and kept going on and on about how people are so disrespectful these days."
The woman received support from other users, who said it was in fact the other passenger who was behaving badly.
One said: "You shouldn’t have to switch your movie just because someone else hasn’t seen it! She could’ve just not looked at your screen!"
Another praised her conduct, saying: "You were very polite and classy with your response. Good job at keeping a level head and not escalating."
A third suggested a punishment for the angry passenger.
They said: "You should have told her the spoilers of the movie, you know in case she missed them."
The woman isn't the only one to have been asked to stop watching their film during a flight.
A man was slammed by a mum for making her child cry when he watched a violent film on a plane.
The 19-year-old passenger said he had downloaded a number of films onto his phone, including Deadpool, an R-rated film.
However, without realising, a young kid – who he said wasn't older than six – was watching him from behind and the violent scenes made him cry.
He said on Reddit: "His mom got mad at me and yelled that I shouldn't be watching that kind of thing, especially in front of children."
