He Snapped up a $150 First-Class Upgrade on His Long-Haul Flight, Even Though It Left His Wife Alone in Economy With Their Three Kids

A man recently went online to ask if he’d been wrong to bag himself a last-minute upgrade without telling his wife. Here’s what he had to say.

They were on vacation

“Me, my wife, and my three kids are currently on vacation,” the 39-year-old began. “The flight here was a long, overnight haul.”

He was a frequent flyer

“I’m part of the loyalty club with the airline we flew out with, and that means there are lots of cool perks, like a lounge, food, etc.”

He had bonus points

The man explained that he’d also managed to rack up a lot of points with his frequent flying, which was always a bonus.

Not wanting to fork out $10,000 on plane tickets for the entire family, the man had bought them all tickets in economy class.

There was a last-minute offer

However, about 20 minutes before boarding began, the tier of the man’s loyalty club was called. The boarding staff revealed that there were two first-class upgrades available on the flight, costing $500 each.

He couldn’t refuse

The man thought this was a great deal, especially given how long the flight was. Even better, he could use his loyalty points and get it knocked down to $150.

The man eagerly snapped up one of the seats for himself. After all, it was a bargain for what he called a “massively better” flight experience. But there was one problem: he hadn’t consulted his wife.

When the man told his wife about his upgrade, she got mad at him. According to him, she “controlled” herself because they were in public, but he could tell she wasn’t happy.

He’d abandoned them

However, the man’s wife did call him out for going and booking himself an upgrade without asking and leaving her to look after their children on a long-haul flight.

Headed for a different kind of break?

When they reached their vacation destination, the man’s wife hadn’t spoken to him apart from saying that they needed a “serious discussion.”

Was it really that bad?

Had the man been so wrong to treat himself to an amazing deal? He asked the internet for their thoughts.

The internet responded

The internet’s response was as you might have expected. “This is the kind of thing that makes women think men are generally worthless as parents,” snarled one.

“That sort of behavior would have me speaking to a divorce lawyer when we returned from vacation,” said another. “Seriously, you thought she’d be fine flying, with three kids, on her own, while you chilled in first class? I wouldn’t be surprised if you’re the sort of husband who thinks unloading the dishwasher is the same as “giving her the day off from her responsibilities.”
