Woman caught in nightmare flight after brutal 5-word comment to fellow passenger


A woman was caught in a nightmare flight after a brutal five-word comment to a fellow passenger.

Holly Thomas was boarding a three-hour flight when a man in the queue behind her brusquely told her to “sit down”. She sat and the man moved further down the plane. 

The woman in the same row as Thomas asked her what had happened and she replied with a brutal five-word comment about the man, saying: “He was a bit rude”.

But the CNN columnist was horrified when the man returned and sat down in between the two woman.

It transpired that the woman who Thomas had confided in about the “rude” man was his wife, who seemingly found their seats while he went to the toilet or stowed their bags elsewhere.

Ms Thomas posted about the encounter on X (formerly Twitter), saying: “Just boarded a three-hour flight. A man in the queue ordered me to “sit down” v brusquely before moving further down the plane. 

“The woman next to me asked what had happened. I replied “he was a bit rude.” He has returned and is now sitting between us. He and the woman are married.”

After the flight, she updated her followers, saying: “We were all scrupulously polite for the entire flight and are now ignoring each other on the shuffle bus.”

Others in the replies commiserated with Thomas and shared similar stories. One woman said: “About 20 years ago I told a man looking for directions to my computer class that the teacher never shut up. He sat down in the class and she introduced him as her husband.”

Another said: “I once held the lift for someone on crutches who was trying as best he could to rush and catch the lift. 

“A woman in the lift said grumpily just leave them to get the next one I’ve got an appointment in 10 mins. Turns out she was my first candidate for a nursing job! Her face”

One shared: “At a work “gala,” I once saw a very obviously drunk man hanging all over my older coworker, who seemed incredibly displeased. 

“I pulled her aside to ask if she needed me to make him leave. It was her husband!! I was so embarrassed but she agreed he was acting horribly.”
