Mom sparks debate after claiming passenger told her she should not fly first ... trends now
A mom has sparked fierce online debate regarding the 'unwritten rule' of bringing kids in the first class section of planes after detailing a recent incident where she was chided by a fellow passenger for doing so.
In an impassioned post to Reddit Saturday, the unnamed mother laid out the saga to strangers on the the 'Am I the A******' subreddit' - where users ask others opinions on specific situations to discern whether they were in the right.
The Reddit user did not reveal her name, but said that the incident transpired on a cross-country flight the past Thanksgiving, when she and her husband - along with their two-year-old daughter - were flying to see relatives.
Having some extra money due to a recent raise the husband received, the family decided to splurge on seats in first class - but were quickly confronted by a nasty passenger before the plane even took off.
What ensued was a contentious clash that saw the disgruntled male rider allegedly complain to staff twice before hurling an expletive at the dumbfounded mom. Despite the man's objections, the family stayed put in their seats - as the toddler whose presence spurred the argument kept quiet the entire ride, the mother said.
Redditors now appear to be divided on the situation, after the mom asked them to weigh in on the matter over the weekend - with most supporting the mother.

'Since we could afford it due to a nice pay raise my husband recently got, we decided to splurge on first class tickets for the trip.
'My toddler has always been a good flyer and has flown a lot throughout her short life. 'She stayed seated and quietly playing throughout the flight, only getting up when she had to go potty - the issue was with another first class passenger.'
