Sharing a picture on Reddit, he wrote: “I guess no entertainment for my wife on this flight.”

In the image, a large black coat was put over the back of the seat, covering nearly all of his wife’s screen.

Lots of people were just as annoyed as he was.

One person said: “Flip it back over the lady’s head.”

Another said: “Blows my mind how someone can do that, while realizing they have a tv/touchscreen in front of them and not think about the tv that’s on the back of their own seat.”

But not everyone agreed – and said the man should have just asked to move it.

Someone commented: “I’m sure she put her jacket on the seat without really realising it would block the TV. All you have to do is kindly ask her to move it and she will.

One person agreed: “She could also say something. Chances are the person didn’t think about it. Most people are decent about stuffs like that.”

He said: “Solution was speaking to the flight attendant. She went and spoke to the senior attendant who then dealt with the issue.

“Not long after, same issue again. I was bumped up to business class.”

Its’s not the first rude passenger to be spotted during a flight.
