I flew out to Los Angeles yesterday for a family celebration this weekend. Across the aisle from me on my JetBlue flight was a bit of commotion. A young couple had noticed some empty seats closer to the front of the plane, which they proceeded to sit down in and buckle up their seat belts. The flight attendant was summoned by a petite white-haired woman who occupied the third seat which was next to the window of that row. The young man and woman were asked to vacate the seats they had mistakenly identified as unfilled. “She has paid for all three of these,” the attendant informed them.
The young couple and everyone witnessing the brief scenario had smiles on their faces. “Good for her!” was the reaction.
