Her 30-second clip garnered viral success and comes just a day after a pilot told DailyMail.com everything there is to know about airplane etiquette — including how to distract any toddlers on board and how to stow your bags.
It also comes a week after an influencer reignited the debate over airline etiquette when she revealed she refused to change sweats for a family.
Audrey Peters, 25, took to TikTok to share her displeasure with the request to move to a middle seat so a family can sit together.
The social media star, who is from Miami but currently lives in New York City, laughed off the request, saying they should have booked their flight earlier.
Her reaction caused the internet to spin as the chair swap continued to divide the internet.
In the past, Jaci Stephen of DailyMail.com even gave her opinion, confessing that she “absolutely refuses” to change seats, no matter how angry the passenger requesting the transfer gets.
