A woman on TikTok has gone viral thanks to a video of her using plastic wrap to “upgrade” her airplane seat, giving her more privacy.

With over a billion monthly users on TikTok, it’s not surprising that the platform continues to push out wild viral videos on the FYP.

One of the latest videos to go viral on the app shows a woman using plastic wrap to ‘upgrade’ her airplane seat, leaving viewers quite confused.

In the video uploaded on May 17, 2023, the woman can be seen wrapping her entire row of seats in plastic wrap.

Just seconds later, a man approaches her and begins taking the plastic off of the seats. “You’re not allowed to do this,” he said.

After fighting with the man, the plastic was eventually removed from the seats.


Viewers quickly took to the comments to share their thoughts on the situation.

“if she can afford to buy 3 economy seats then why not just buy a business class seat,” one user replied.

Another said: “Why didn’t she just by first class at this point.”

“So the people behind can’t use trays & people in front have to sit against plastic?” a third user said.

It’s unknown what happened to the lady after the plastic was removed, but it’s clear that others were quite confused by her actions.
