One of life's great pleasures is the surprise of open seats next to you on a plane. That happened for Jessie Char as she boarded a recent JetBlue flight. Open seats and smiles all the way to the horizon.
"I left the armrests up so I could bask in the comfort of my private airplane bench," Char told NBC 4 New York. "It was a short flight, but I wasn't about to let this go to waste." Totally reasonable. Kick back and enjoy your condo in the sky.
However, shortly after takeoff, there was a thud. An arm rest had fallen.
