The woman who refused to give up her 1A plane seat for a teenager insists she's not a terrible human being.

Even at the best of times plane trips are always slightly tense, what with screaming babies, subpar on-flight bathrooms and the chaos of duty-free fanatics cramming their discounted purchases into the cabin compartments.

However, after throwing in some awkward plane seat politics - it seems the entire fiasco only gets a whole lot more heated. Check it out:

Now that we're well into the summer holiday season, it's clear many of us are bearing witness to the reopened debate surrounding plane etiquette and namely - seating arrangements.

One jet-setter decided to put her foot down after refusing to give up her seat on a flight so that a child could sit with their family.

Unsurprisingly, given the hot topic subject matter, she has gone viral.

Taking to TikTok, Sabra Zaraa shared a short clip of herself earlier this month (20 July), revealing that she didn’t grant the hopeful their wish.

The woman revealed that she stuck to her guns when a set of parents asked her to move from her 1A plane seat - arguably the most desirable place to perch onboard-during a flight.

The overlay text of the TikTok reads: "POV: Flight agent asks me if I want to give up my 1A seat so a child sits with their family."

Zaraa, who posts using the handle @lifewithdrsabra, jokingly used the popular TikTok audio of a person saying: "Girl, f**k them kids and f**k you too."

In the caption of the short clip, the jet-setter explained a little more about the situation and assured viewers that the family ended up 'finding a solution' after she refused their request.

"That’s a no from me dawg," she wrote.

"Would you have given up your seat? Also they ended up finding a solution so no, I am not a terrible human being. Also the child was like 13."

She has since outlined some further context surrounding the incident which has since clocked up a whopping eight million views since it was posted.

"To clarify," she commented, "the gate agent asked me, I asked to see the seat map, I didn't like the alternative. They were kind and found a solution right away."

Zaraa also informed the millions of views that the family in question 'never addressed' her, noting: "I think it was even the airline's rule, not them asking to sit together."

"The airline asked the parents but we do appreciate people like you," she added.
