Never expect kindness from people. He did nothing wrong by sitting in the seat he purchased, would have been nice of him if he offered it though.

If you paid for a seat, and it was assigned to you, then you're within your rights to decline to move...maybe she could offer to buy him lunch or drinks or something, or maybe the airline could hook him up with something if they got involved, but other than that, sorry

He is right though. But I personally would swap seats because the back of the plane is the safest part of it, and I don't agree with per-seat ticketing.

That Ryanair passenger probably wasn't British. I've yet to see a person in UK who would display such sad manners, though I'm sure not all people are kind and friendly. Nevertheless acting with manners when kindly asked is a highlight of British culture for me.

The headline is misleading - he refused to swap seats for a man. And within his rights too.

She is allowed to ask - and he is allowed to say no.
