A woman was totally caught off guard when a plane passenger tried to flirt with her.
Some airlines have seat-to-seat chats that allow flyers to message each other directly. However, TikToker @ufosteph couldn’t believe it when the guy sitting in front of her used the chat to try and have a meet-cute. Instead of finding it endearing, she just found it kind of cringe.
The screen in front of her seat received a notification that read “Seat Chat Invitation: 9E has sent you a chat invitation” with an option to “Decline” or “Accept Chat.”
“I turned off the screen to avoid interaction,” she explained.
“I didn’t reply/accept because he was sitting in the row in front of me. It was awkward,” she said in the comment section.
TikTokers were split on whether they supported in-flight flirting.
“Is this a thing now? At least Airdropping had an element of anonymity to it,” a user commented.
“Catch me sprinting up to 9E real quick to see if they’re cute,” another wrote.
“Um, I actually kinda like this idea,” someone said.
“What, you can chat on airplanes now?! What in the reality show is that?!” a person joked.
“My anxiety already operates at high capacity. This would send it through the roof!” a TikToker replied.
