Airline passenger films man punching her seat after she reclines

According to Williams, the passenger behind her punched the seat with more force about nine times prior to the video, when he switched to the more constant, lower-impact punch solution demonstrated in the tweet.

Now, Monica Lewinsky has thrown in her two cents, backing the woman in the viral footage.

The woman said the man asked her, with an attitude, to put up her seat because he was eating.

In Williams' case, the passenger behind her was watching a video on a phone placed on a flat tray. That video has now become a lightning rod for debate about personal space and keeping the peace on planes.

BTW, Wendi also claims she's had to get x-rays, has headaches and lost time from work since going 12 rounds with her fellow passenger.

As for the airline at the center of the incident, Williams said she spoke with American Airlines after causing a firestorm on Twitter - the video is nearing 300,000 views - but wasn't satisfied that "they apologized but really didn't accept any responsibility for the flight attendant's actions".

"I've had extensive neck surgeries - my cervical spine is completely fused, except for C1, " she tweeted.

The illness now has a name, CoViD-19
Singapore has 50 cases, including one found at its biggest bank, DBS, on Wednesday that caused an evacuation at the head office. It is suspected to have come from a market that illegally traded wildlife in Hubei province's capital of Wuhan in December.

"After much consideration, and exhausting every opportunity for #AmericanAirlines to do the right thing, I've made a decision to share my assault, from the passenger behind me, and the further threats, from an American Airline flight attendant", Williams wrote on Twitter. "I asked her name & She gave me a Passenger Disturbance Notice!" "It's scary bc it's this the kind of injury that could do it in", she said. She tweeted that she plans to file an assault charge with the Federal Bureau of Investigation against the "man who mistook me for a punching bag". "Anyone who doesn't like it, I don't care!"

"After much consideration, and exhausting every opportunity for American Airlines to do the right thing, I've chose to share my assault, from the passenger behind me, and the further threats, from an American Airline flight attendant". Although some people consider reclining seats a nuisance or "rude", there are no rules, spoken or unspoken, about not reclininy your seat if the person behind you does not.

Others faulted Williams for reclining her seat in such a tight space in the first place.

Sure, it sucks to be crammed into that last seat, and sure, the world may be a bit better if nobody reclined their seats, but come on. It's much more comfortable to recline your seat and they are designed in such a way that they do not affect the person sitting behind. "The safety and comfort of our customers and team members is our top priority, and our team is looking into the issue", the airline said in a statement to The Washington Post. It's an option for a reason. "It literally ruins the travel experience of the person sitting behind you", she said. "He knew he was being recorded and still acted that way, but you're right, I'm sure we could've shared some tea and had a nice, calm chat".

While some said the woman should have taken pity on the man who was in the last row of the plane and lacked the ability to recline his own seat, others pointed out that then the person in front of the woman should take pity on her, and so on, meaning no one could recline in the end. Why should you be inconvenienced?

"Doesn't matter that she had her seat reclined", responded another.
