Had a woman ask me to change on a TPAC flight from Japan. I was in the bulkhead window and her toddler daughter was in the middle next to me while she was in the middle seat in the row behind me. She asked me – and just me – to switch with her so she could have my window seat (next to her daughter) and I’d take her middle seat a row back.
Hell to the f**k no. Not my problem, they didn’t book together. Worse is we were surrounded by others from her tour group that she could’ve asked for a three-way trade instead. Or the tour operator. The audacity to ask just me and expect an inferior trade on my side.
