'Selfish' passenger slammed for bringing carry-on suitcase on full flight – but many are on his side | The Sun

A PASSENGER slammed a man for trying to bring a suitcase onto a busy flight – but people are not on their side.

They explained that during a recent flight, they were the last group to board the busy plane.

After boarding, a man in front struggled to find room for his carry-on suitcase.

They wrote: "He was standing in the aisle, preventing everyone else from getting to their seats.

"He spent a good min or so looking for a spot. He wasn’t finding any near him.

"He decided he must go towards the front of the plane to find space in a previously unexplored overhead bin."

However, the man "waved his hand in a 'scoot back' motion" to which the person said they couldn't go anyway as the aisle was full of people.

They continued: "I probably would’ve tried to help if he was even a little apologetic, but the entitled nonchalance of his hand wave was infuriating.

"I glared at him & said 'what do you want me to do here'.

'He wrinkled his nose & sarcastically said 'have a pleasant flight'."

The Redditor said they understood it was a "difficult position" and that it was the airline's fault for making planes so small.

However, they added that the flight crew had offered to check bags in for free at the gate as it was so full, and asked if they were wrong to be mad.

Some people understood the poster's annoyance, saying the man was rude.

However, most were on the stranger's side.

Someone said: "You sound entitled. Not rude to try to stow a carry-on everyone on the plane is trying to make that happen – you could’ve helped but you’d rather be an AH."

Another said: "He wasn't holding up the plane's departure. You're just a grumpy person who seems to think they should be policing the world."

A third wrote: "He could have something very important in his carry on he doesn’t want to risk losing."
