Cramped for space?-June 27, 2021

I’ve logged more flights and air miles than I can ever begin to count over the past 40 years, but never has someone said I was cramping their personal space.,,in economy class. Is personal space a real option in coach? If it’s such a problem with sharing seats with the plebs, buy a seat in business or first class, I thought. My wife thought get a private jet.

I don’t know what was the man’s real problem, especially as he’d slept most of the 2 hour flight.

I inhaled and rolled my eyes and thought about COVID paranoia.

I’m glad my family thought this was a weird experience, especially as I’d been bumped into the middle seat by my teenager, who bagged the window seat.

Wish this fellow many happy hours of personal space filled travel.
