Mum demands stranger entertains her seven-year-old son on flight

A woman found herself embroiled in a bitter argument with a mum sitting next to her on a flight when she demanded she turned off the film she was watching to let her son play games on the phone

A plane passenger was left stunned after a mum sitting next to her branded her a “spiteful b***h” when she refused to let her child play games on her phone to keep him entertained.

When the woman boarded the flight from Budapest to London, the mum sitting in the same row asked if she would trade her window seat to sit in the aisle so that her seven-year-old son could look out of the window instead.

She agreed and began to watch the superhero film Venom on her phone with her headphones in, but 20 minutes into the flight the mum and son swapped places, so the child was now sitting in the middle seat next to her.

The film got to a point where the protagonist “bit the head off of a bad guy”, at which point the mum tapped her on the shoulder to ask if the movie is appropriate for children, as the woman realised the child had also been watching her screen.

When she responded to say the film was rated a 15, the mum suggested she put on something more suited to children or turned it off all together.
When woman explained: “Now I’m not gonna lie, I’m very confrontational – confrontation makes me giddy, but I was dead a** shocked.
“‘Uh, no. I’m still gonna watch the movie I picked for my flight’ I responded. Now the kid pipes up, ‘Have you got any games I could play?’ ‘No, because I’m watching a movie’. ‘Come on, he’s bored’ [the mum] said. ‘Not my problem though is it?’
