This passenger saw a U.S. military officer flying coach and decided to thank her for her service by giving up his seat

Familiar flying struggle

It is great that the world is easier to explore thanks to more affordable and frequent flights, but there is still a big struggle involved with flying. We can be stuck in the airport for what feels like days at a time, shuffling from the security line to another in the departure lounge. It doesn’t matter if you’re tired of standing in line or not, there’s more to come as you get to the gate. Once you get through the airport and onto the plane there’s another problem, everyone is crammed into the aircraft like sardines in a can.

Sometimes you’re stuck on a plane for up to half a day, and it definitely feels at least that long every time you fly! One military officer knew the struggle of flying all too well as they were making their way back home, but that didn’t make the journey any easier. Instead of settling into the flight, this military personnel had someone come along and ask them to leave their seat for an unbelievable reason.
