A passenger has shared how she finds herself at the center of aviation among a couple after being elevated to first class – and sparked a debate about her husband’s behaviour.
In a video uploaded to TikTok, Jordynn Wynn said she and an unnamed man, who she describes as in her late 30s or early 40s, chatted as she was brought to the front of the plane.
Ms Wynn said the pair talked for about 20 minutes before his wife angrily confronted him, reports Nine.com.au.
“He was working on his laptop and I was working on my laptop, the flight attendant came around and offered us drinks and I just ordered a glass of water.” she said in her video. class – at which point the conversation begins.
“At some point, he actually told me that his wife was in the back with two kids because he was so far away on the project and he was sitting in first class so he could be able to complete it because he is also randomly upgraded.”
At this point — “as if on cue,” Miss Wynn said — his wife appeared with two young children. Ms Wynn said she “placed the baby” on her husband’s lap and said: “If you’re not working, the least you can do is watch one of the babies.”
TikTok users allege that the man tried to discuss the matter with his wife, who said she saw her husband relax for 20 minutes while she struggled economically with the kids.
“In the end, she left and just left the baby in his lap,” Ms Wynn said, adding: “What partner would leave their partner in the back of the plane while they’re drinking? whiskey in first class, as two people. a five-year-old on a three, four-hour flight?”
Most of the comments on TikTok videos are directed at the husband. One user shared a similar experience, writing: “My husband left me with our daughter when he was upgraded to [first class] on a six-hour flight. Whenever I think about it, I buy myself something beautiful.”
Another wrote: “If my husband gets the upgrade and leaves me in economy class with two kids, he won’t be able to live. Many people commented that they were “the wife team”.
“I can’t tell you how many times husbands sit in first class and leave their wives behind,” said one flight attendant.
Last month, people called for a woman to divorce her husband after it was revealed that he allegedly flew first class while leaving his wife and children in economy class.
