Passenger on flight films man punching her reclined economy seat

Passenger on flight films man punching her reclined economy seat

A video of a passenger punching the back of a reclined seat on a plane has emerged online - and seriously divided the internet.

The clip, shared on social media, has sparked mass debate.

The vision shows the man repeatedly hitting the seat because the woman in front of him reclined hers.

The man was reportedly in a row with seating that did not recline.

The woman has been criticised for reclining in economy class on a short-haul, two hour flight, although others have come to her defence, saying she has every right to do so.

Sunrise host David Koch said it was “bad form” to put the seat back on such a short journey.

“Let’s not allow them to go back,” he said, calling on Jetstar, Qantas, Virgin and the like to put a lock in place on domestic flights.

“It is uncomfortable. It’s very selfish I think.”

Decide for yourself in the video above.

It’s hardly the first time we’ve see questionable behaviour on a flight.

Last month a passenger grossed out absolutely everyone when he was caught drying his trainers using air vents on a plane.

A clip shared online shows the man pushing the running shoes up towards the vents above his head while sitting in his seat.

And in another situation a man and his female companion threw etiquette out the window with a poorly-timed and poorly-placed foot massage, grossing out other travellers.
