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.
She shared her joy on Thursday.

"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.
That's an appalling thing to see next to you on a plane.
Somehow, it got worse.
It doesn't really matter how many open seats there are, this is not okay. Blanket rule: Don't do this.
Char's tweets went viral like a foot fungus, and the responses came in quick with a universal [gag].
It merits repeating. Don't stick your bare feet all over the plane. Not in the aisle. Not on a seat. Not anywhere, Sam I Am, no one likes them even if your feet don't smell like ham.
