A man has been praised online for refusing to give up his plane seat for a newlywed couple on their honeymoon.

Plane etiquette is a much talked about topic online, particularly on platforms such as Reddit and TikTok.

There is often heated discussion about whether you should give up your plane seat, and don't get me started on the debate around crying babies.

This Reddit post focuses on the former, as a man decided to take a stand against a couple on their honeymoon.

The newlyweds were on their way to their sunny destination when the husband asked the man in the window seat if he could move so he could sit by his wife.

However, the man took a stand, but according to him, did so in a polite way.

Voicing his frustrations on Reddit's 'AmItheA**hole' forum, he wrote: "They asked me if they can change seats with me to which I politely refused and gave them my reasons. One of the reasons was my size and aisle traffic.

"I always get bumped by someone when I am on the aisle seat. One time, my elbow was badly hurt because the trolley hit me. I [have] avoided the aisle seat ever since."

The man added that it was his second of three flights, with that one being the longest one. As a result, he 'wanted to sleep and relax'.

He continued: "The other guy who is seated with the husband tried to persuade me to change seats to making a scene as if I was the scrooge in the couple's honeymoon."

The man then asked the Reddit forum if he was in the wrong, writing: "I didn't budge and all the people around me, including the crew, looked like they hate me. Am I wrong to refuse changing my seat?"

If you head to the comment section of the Reddit forum, you'll find that a lot of people are in the man's camp.

"If they wanted to be seated together so badly, they should have paid extra to reserve seats together," one person wrote.

A second wrote: "Every time this story comes up the person is not the a**hole for refusing to move. You booked your seat specially."

Meanwhile, a third remarked: "Newlywed entitlement is a thing. The proper bottom line has been stated here many times.

"You booked and paid for that seat you should in no way feel bad or guilty for not giving it to someone else who couldn't be bothered to plan ahead or pay extra."
