A man took matters into his own hands after a fellow passenger kept reaching into his row to open his window shade during a flight.

Plane manners are a frequently debated topic on social media as flights can be a place for disagreements when passengers are squeezed into seats with nowhere to go.

One major debate on planes is who has right over the windows.

Well, Eric Goldie - who goes by the handle @ericgoldie on TikTok - documented his negative experience with a fellow flyer who desperately wanted the blind open.

Replying to a comment, the real estate agent posted a video showing himself looking depleted before sharing a clip of a person reaching behind their seat to open the window.

Watch Eric's TikTok below:

In the clip, the frazzled-looking man can be seen pushing the person's hand away twice while no words are exchanged between the two.

He posted the clip - which has amassed a staggering 594.3K likes and 5.6 million views - in response to a comment on a previous video where he recorded a list of irritating things people do on airplanes.

While the comments were divided on the TikToker's actions, many users on the video-sharing app agreed with how he handled the situation.

One user wrote: "The hand slap is the vibe I’m going with for 2023."

A third commented: "If you have to reach to the [person's personal] space behind or in front of you, it's not your window."

A fourth shared: "I was on a flight and someone reached up to my window and kept opening it… I kept shutting it and she was like I want to see the view… use your own??"

Others questioned whether he had the right to guard the window with such determination, as one person noted: "You have to think of everyone in the row. Rule is if daylight [is] out it stays open and if dark out it stays closed. People have paid to see the view."

A second user interjected: "Why would you get a window seat if you don't want to see the outside? get an aisle seat."

A third person questioned: "I get so confused when the window is 50/50 between seats. Who owns it."

The New-York based man later posted another follow-up video clarifying the location of the window to justify his actions toward the passenger.

"I see how this can be confusing but there is no confusion on whose window this was," he stated in the 16-second video. He then put a picture/video of how his seat looked "when reclined" and added: "That's my headrest. It's not 50/50. Here's a video for reference."

Do you guys think he was in the wrong for pushing the passenger's hand away? Comment down below!
