THIS is the moment an entire flight reportedly had to deplane as a woman complaining of claustrophobia wanted an aisle seat.

Footage from a United Airlines flight to Rome shows the woman's husband arguing with other passengers and cabin crew.


One frustrated passenger asks him: "So you're going to kick everyone off? You're going to make everyone get off now?"

He tells the fed-up traveller to "blame" the attendants.

The passenger replies: "I'm blaming you because you're the one who's going to make us all get off because you're not leaving. Because you didn't get your way.

"I understand she's supposed to have her seat but you're not going to disrupt it for everybody."

The woman's husband responds: "Oh yes we are".

He then challenges a flight attendant – who he calls "Mr customer service".

The irate man hits out, saying his partner had paid $142 extra to have an aisle seat as she suffers from claustrophobia only to end up with her "worst case scenario against the wall".

His wife can be heard telling him "we have to get off the plane".

While the arguments are going on, other passengers appear to be collecting up their possessions.

The Sun has contacted United Airlines for comment on the incident on November 3.

It comes after a passenger refused to swap seats during a flight with a family so they could all sit together 

The traveller said they were on a 10-hour flight from Greece in September, with the end of the summer holidays making for a very busy time of year.

He said on Reddit: "I booked my ticket specifically to be closer to the front of the plane so I can be closer to the gate when it’s time to get out.

"I personally hate traveling so I spent a bit more money to be closer."

However, as soon as he got on the plane, he said a family-of-four asked if he could swap seats so they could all sit together.

He continued: "Normally I’d be okay with that but switching spots would mean moving back 20 rows down which leaves me at an inconvenience and I would not be getting my money's worth."

However, after saying he wanted to keep his seat, he was called an "a*****" by the woman in front of her husband and kids, adding she "ended up making a scene."
