Female soldier stopped while boarding plane, man asks “What does your ticket say?”


While boarding a plane Jessica Titus noticed another passenger stop a female Army soldier as she passed his seat.

Jessica shared her story on the Love What Matters Facebook page,

“On my flight Tuesday, I walked down the jetway behind a woman in uniform (Army). A man stood up from his 1st class seat and said, ‘Sorry ma’am, I’m in your seat.’

‘What does your ticket say?’ He asked.

She replied, ‘What? No – I’m 31 B.’

He walked away, leaving her with his first class seat and then took her middle seat in coach.

Spoiler alert, he refused my offer. Do good. Recognize good. Make the world better.”

She sent him a hand written note that read “Seat 31 B – Please accept a drink or snak on me. If everyon treated people the way you treated the service-woman, the world would be a better place.”

The formerly first-class passenger now traveling in coach kindly refused her offer.
