Flight passengers fight over window blind in never-ending row on plane

A man has sparked a furious debate about the correct etiquette as a plane passenger when he showed a woman closing "his" window blind.

In a TikTok video, Gregory Hernandez @_iamgreg moaned "this lady keeps closing my window".

He then showed a woman with manicured nails reaching behind her seat to close his blind, making him respond by opening it again.

The woman then opens it again and they go back and forth in a passive-aggressive manner until he actually slaps her hand away and the video ends.

Since he uploaded it on Wednesday (August 11) the clip has been watched more than 2 million times.

In the caption, he asked viewers: "Whose window is it?"

One person suggested: "Don't get a window seat if you don't want the window."

"I like how you smack her hand," joked a second user.

Someone else said: "If you have to reach behind you definitely not yours."

"If anyone says it's her window clearly you don't travel," a fourth person commented.

Another user chipped in: "She's definitely in the wrong but couldn't you have solved the situation by just leaving it closed?"

Meanwhile, other people blamed the plane's design for having a window between the seats and others even suggested the passenger knew the woman and reckoned the clip was "staged".

Normally flight crew will ensure the window blinds are open for take-off and landing because of safety reasons.

Sarah Udayakumar, an aviation safety officer, said in a Quora post: "In case of sudden emergencies, every second counts.

"Therefore if shades are open crew can easily see outside conditions to help them in planning the evacuation – which doors to use for evacuation."

This is not the first time a row has broken out on a plane over the window blind – with a previous argument caught on video being branded "petty" by viewers.
