Airplane passenger stands for ‘6 hours’ so ‘his wife could sleep’

This might be taking “being a good husband” a bit too seriously.

A photo recently surfaced on social media showing a man who reportedly stood for 6 hours on a plane ride. He’s shown standing over someone who appears to be his wife, who is using her seat and his to lay down.

Some users on Twitter saw this as the ultimate romantic move. Others, however, thought the woman should have just sat normally in her chair.

Courtney Lee Johnson originally shared the photo on Twitter, praising the man for his actions. Johnson, a life coach, captioned the photo, “This guy stood up the whole 6 hours so his wife could sleep. Now that is love.”

While the post didn’t include details on how long the overall flight was, where they were flying from and what airline it happened on, that didn’t stop Twitter users from commenting on the supposedly romantic move. The original post garnered over 3,000 retweets and over 15,000 reactions.

Not a chance that my hubby would do that for me. The guy must be newly married or very afraid of his wife. ?

On one of our flights between the UK and NZ on Air NZ we paid for those SkyCouch seats for the 3 of us. It was the most uncomfortable seat arrangements we ever encountered and was a waste of money.

Same here! San Fran to Auckland, and because you still had to wear a seat belt you couldn’t lie down anyway. Pretty useless really. Standing for 6 hours? Only if she were pregnant lol!
