This is not so much wedding related. I just need to vent. My husband 🙂 and I just got back from our Wonderful honeymoony in Hawaii. Unfortunately, on the way back the airline sat us in different rows- for a nine hour flight. Anyway I was on a row with a girl and a guy- none of us knew each other before the flight. They both seemed nice enough. Imagine my surprise when maybe 2 hours into the flight they are making out. Now if it had just been limited to them making out the entire flight I could have handled that. HOWEVER, they proceeded to do some stuff under the blanket and I know that she gave him oral like twice.
My personality is very laid back and I hate confrontation. I didn’t know what to do. Part of me was thinking “is this really happening right now?” and “this is going to stop soon” and “who DOES this??”. I did not want to turn around and look head on so I glanced out of the corner of my eye. Then I put a pillow on the side of my head between me and them so I couldn’t see anything. At least three times when flight attendants walked by I made eye contact with them, they looked at the people beside me and kind of just asked me if I was ok.
Eventually when it was getting really hot and heavy (the girl was sitting on his lap!) my husband, who was sitting behind the guy raised his voice and asked what was going on. He was kinda like “whatever is going on better not be going on beside my wife”. He asked me if I was ok and he told them what they were doing was “bullshit”. I turned around and said I was just trying not to look over there. Anyway, they stopped after that. After we got off the flight and I told him about the oral he was really mad at me that I would sit there and not say anything. Needless to say I feel so stupid and disrespected. I have issues with standing up for myself and knew when it was going on that it was wrong, yet I didn’t want to be a “snitch” or cause any problems. This is something that I really need to work on- my husband said he would help me lol- he isn’t mad anymore. Everytime I think of my flight back I get super grossed out. I know this email is super long, but just wondering in a nutshell, what others would have done in this situation. Thanks for listening!

@teachernva: “none of us knew each other before the flight”
What. The. Heck.
I’m so sorry for you and don’t know what I would have done. Your husband has no right to be mad at you, he should be showing sympathy. (((Hugs))).

@teachernva: As a flight attendant myself I fell grossed out for you LOL! Did you press the flight attendant call button?

@teachernva: People actually do this?!? I would take a picture or maybe even record it… lol After all, they want to be public.
They are nastily desperate!

I think they were role playing….pretending not to know each other to “spice” things up.
That said… I would have asked a FA to ask them to stop and then move me to a different seat.

Usually when people post XXX from hell on here I read the post and go ‘eh it wasn’t really that bad’…I did not do that on this one.
That’s just sooo awkward and gross. I think I would be equally weirded out and at a loss in that situation. Maybe I would have gotten up and talked to a flight attendant at their station so I wouldn’t have to speak up in front of my seat mates, but still get the problem taken care of.

Wow, that is so inappropriate.
I probably wouldn’t have said anything directly to them, but maybe gotten up (if I could get around them) “to go to the bathroom” and alerted a flight attendant to the situation without being obvious about it.
Although from your post it sounds like the flight attendants saw what was going on and ignored it, so idk. What an awkward situation.

@Regina Phalange: I doubt the flight attendants ignored it. It can be dark in the cabins and the poster did not alert them from the sounds of it. We can’t see what every single person is doing on the plane at all times. Even if they looked over maybe they may have stopped in that moment.

@Peachytalk: I could totally be wrong — that’s just the impression I got from the way it was worded. No disrespect toward flight attendants intended!

That is so disgusting…I am the kind of person who you cannot count on having the same reaction every time.
I would either: sit there with tears streaming down my face feeling violated
Start loudly talking shit about how disgusting they were and make a huge scene where somebody would have to hold somebody back because I can say the cruelest things to strangers when I’m mad.
Sorry you had to endure that.

@Regina Phalange: no disrespect taken ! 🙂 I just speaking on behalf of flight attendants everywhere, because I don’t know another FA that would allow intentionally allow that shiz to happen!
Post # 13
Yuck! Some people have no shame. I have no idea what I would have done, but I’d like to think that I would have told them to get an effing room!

Thanks for the support guys! I think one of weirdest things about this was that they didn’t know each other! The girl was from France and she was asking us questions and talking about how nervous she was. She didn’t speak english that clearly and I guess he was talking to her about France and stuff. He also talked about how drunk he was and how he was planning to get drunker. He proceeded to drink like 2 or 3 of those small bottles of Smirnoff. He offered her some since she seemed nervous but I’m not sure if she drank any. After the flight I saw them both in the airport separately so I don’t think they were together.
I kinda think every time the flight attendant slowed down they kind of let up and were just kissing. It was really dark on the plane as it was an evening flight and the lights were off. I guess the flight attendant can’t really tell them to stop kissing anyway. It’s my fault that I didn’t outright say something. I thought about pushing the FA call button but it makes a little ding sound and I figured they would stop anyway if they heard that and the FA wouldn’t see what was going on. I SOOOO regret not saying anything now, especially since I feel violated. It was just sooo gross. I think what bothers me most is that I didn’t stand up for myself and let them know that I was not ok with it. Anyway, I am trying to erase the memory from mind lol.

What a horrible experience.
I honestly don’t know how you just sat there; I would have said something to them 5 seconds after they started getting it on.

I don’t know how you didn’t say anything the entire time. I would have made sure they stopped. If I PAID for a flight, I’m not about to sit through it extremely uncomfortable. I would have made sure the entire cabin around us knew what the sleezeballs were doing.
You need to start standing up for yourself, like yesterday.
