A plane pas­sen­ger recent­ly shared her frus­tra­tion on Red­dit after pay­ing extra for a win­dow seat, only to dis­cov­er that she was seat­ed next to a sol­id panel. 

The unnamed trav­el­er expressed her dis­ap­point­ment by shar­ing a pho­to of her air­line seat, reveal­ing the lack of a view. She had booked a win­dow seat on a Delta flight but found her­self seat­ed in front of the exit row, where pas­sen­gers typ­i­cal­ly enjoy both a win­dow and extra legroom. 

Though she was­n’t con­cerned about legroom due to her height, the absence of a win­dow left her mild­ly frustrated.

Unfor­tu­nate­ly, as the flight was ful­ly booked, there were no alter­na­tive seat options avail­able. While the flight atten­dants offered to put her on a new flight, she declined as she was trav­el­ing with fam­i­ly. Though dis­ap­point­ed, she chose not to make a fuss, con­sid­er­ing the sit­u­a­tion only mild­ly infuriating.

Many Red­dit users empathized with the pas­sen­ger’s expe­ri­ence, shar­ing their own sim­i­lar encoun­ters. Some even received com­pen­sa­tion from the air­line for their inconvenience. 

Oth­ers advised con­sult­ing a seat map before book­ing to avoid such inci­dents, as cer­tain air­craft con­fig­u­ra­tions may sac­ri­fice a win­dow seat for oth­er neces­si­ties, such as AC ducts or emer­gency exits.

One com­menter point­ed out that Delta does not charge for win­dow seats direct­ly; instead, they charge extra for Com­fort+ and exit row seats, which offer addi­tion­al legroom. There­fore, the pas­sen­ger may have paid more for the legroom rather than the win­dow itself.
