Person Asks if They’re Wrong for Not Giving Their up Their First Class Seat on a Plane for Their Boss

Get in the back of the plane with the peasants!

Okay, that’s probably not the smartest thing to say to YOUR BOSS, but would you give up your First Class seat…for anyone?

Well, that’s the dilemma at the heart of this person’s story…see what you think!

AITA for not giving my boss my first class seat?

“Yesterday, my boss and I were flying home from a conference.

We were on the same flight, but our original seats were not next to each other. I’m a frequent traveller on this airline and use their credit card, so I often get free upgrades to first class. I got upgraded on this flight and my boss did not.

After the flight, when we were collecting our bags she said she wanted to talk to me about my “lack of respect for protocol”. She thinks that because the company paid for my original ticket, and she is more senior than me, I should’ve given her the first class seat.

I think this is absolutely insane. While the company paid for my seat, it’s my own personal credit card spending, and frequent travel that earned me the upgraded seat.

Is this some sort of corporate standard I’m not aware of?


And here’s what Reddit users had to say.

One reader said they’re NTA and they might want to think about how to “cover their a**.”

Another individual said they need to document everything about this to HR.

And this Reddit user said she was NTA and a good boss wouldn’t have asked something like this.
