An Instagram user has sparked a furious debate over airline etiquette after quickly disembarking a plane from the back row.
In the viral video titled: “POV: You Have No Patience When Getting Off Planes,” a passenger seated near the back of the plane rushes to get off.
As soon as the seat belt signal sounds, the passenger grabs his or her backpack and runs down the aisle, quickly passing passengers collecting their luggage from the overhead bins.
While the majority of passengers have just unbuckled their seat belts and are patiently waiting to get out, the man mutters to himself, seemingly happy to have managed to get off so quickly.
An Instagram user went viral after quickly exiting a plane and sparked a heated debate in the comments section.
The man was sitting in the last row and quickly stood up as soon as the seat belt signal went off. He headed to the front of the plane within seconds.
Within seconds, the speedy passenger is heading to the front of the plane with only a few people in front of him.
Posting the video to his 4,000 followers, the social media user wrote in the captions: “I’m literally in the top 5 plane disembarkers.”
The now-viral video has been viewed nearly 10 million times and attracted thousands of comments.
One comment, which read: “You are the problem,” was liked more than 223,000 times.
Hundreds of other disgruntled passengers agreed, with one person writing: “Unless you’re about to miss your connecting flight, there’s no need.”
Another person wrote: “Go back to your seat. »
Meanwhile, some were contemplating revenge fantasies in the comments. One person wrote: “If I’m sitting aisle-side I’ll just stand up and block you and tell you to wait your turn. »
Some users, however, came to the passenger’s defense, with one user writing: “Why is everyone so angry that he can get off a plane?” I didn’t see anyone having a problem in the video.
Another agreed: “The same people who take 78 business days to get their stuff, get off and get on the plane are the ones complaining about this guy.”
One particularly passionate follower asked Instagram users to consider three things: “1. He’s in the back of the plane.
‘2. He already had his things packed and got up as soon as they landed.
‘3. Everyone on the plane has two options: get their things faster and be more organized or let off those who are ready and have minimal luggage.
The video comes after a summer of travel etiquette, and near the start of the season, a heated debate ensued after a CEO kicked an entitled mother out of her pre-reserved seat.
Jewelry brand CONQUERing businesswoman Tammy Nelson posted her experience on TikTok and received countless comments praising her for not giving up her seat.
But while most people supported her in refusing her mother’s request, a smaller minority argued that she could have been more empathetic and understanding.
