A man was criticised after accepting an upgrade on a long flight – leaving his wife behind.

The man accepted a business class upgrade on a 12-hour flight, leaving his wife behind in economy. She was not happy with his decision as they planned to sit together the whole flight. But he did not see a problem as they would both be asleep anyway. After sharing his story online, he was flooded with comments saying he was in the wrong. So Jeziel wanted to know, what would you have done?

Ian would have given the upgrade to his wife. “Because the Bible says I have to put her first in everything…I get an empty seat next to me anyway so I can stretch out a bit.” Anne’s husband gave her the seat in business class while he stayed in economy with their four kids! “He was in the back with the kids. I was having satay in the front, it was really nice.” Ruth and her husband would split the upgrade. “No one misses out we can enjoy the upgrade for a few hours each.”
