In an age where social media has the power to turn ordinary moments into viral sensations, a recent video of an unusual incident on a plane has taken the internet by storm. The footage shows passengers seemingly taking in-flight entertainment to a whole new level by blocking the TV screen next to them. The incident raised questions about personal space boundaries and in-flight etiquette, and highlighted the challenges of navigating shared spaces at 35,000 feet.
The video, shared by @d_p_e_k on Reddit, shows a passenger reclining his seat and covering the screen of the person sitting behind him with his hand. The incident occurred during a commercial aircraft flight, and viewers were both amused and perplexed by the audacity of such an action. This video was taken during a long-distance flight.
The video’s caption reads: “The person was sitting in front of my cousin on a long-haul flight…”

Social media users were quick to voice their opinions on the issue, with many condemning the actions of passengers blocking seats. While some found the incident humorous, others saw it as a serious breach of in-flight etiquette. The video sparked a heated debate about the unwritten rules that govern behavior in shared spaces, especially on airplanes where personal space is limited.
Commenting on this video, one user suggested a diabolical way to solve the problem. “Pretend to sneeze and throw some water on him.”
Another user wrote: “I would have wiped the booger off his hand.”
“Communicate. It’s not that hard to politely ask them to stop doing something that’s causing a problem. Usually it’s just a mistake and they’ll apologize and stop.”3 the second user wrote.
“Our cousin should have called the flight attendant and told the ‘hands’ to be by his side,” a fourth user suggested.
A fifth user wrote, “I don’t understand why people think documenting problems and solving problems are incompatible. Assuming this is reality, if I were faced with this problem, I’d say this person I would have recorded utter surprise at the rudeness and/or both.” Who’s to say OP’s cousin didn’t do the same? ”
The airline has not yet responded to the video.
