A woman has taken to TikTok to slam Delta Air Lines as she was unable to secure her seatbelt during a flight.

Remi Bader, 26, uploaded a video to the popular app in which she can be seen struggling to fasten the seatbelt around her waist as the Delta Air Lines flight prepares to depart for its destination.

Addressing the US airline in the video, Remi tells them to "figure it out", and goes on to say in the caption of the clip: "And no, I shouldn't need to ask for an extender. It should just be easy!"

Check out her video below:

The comments on the video, which was posted last month, have now been turned off.

However, as reported by The Mirror, a number of people felt the video's message resonated with them and their own personal experiences.

One person wrote: "I was too embarrassed to ask last time so I pretended to be buckled and just decided if we hit turbulence so be it".

Another said: "This is exactly why I have a fear of flying. In 2016, the belt just closed. I have no hope now and refuse to be belittled by the crew".

A third person claimed: “I was asked to move from the exit row once because I needed an extender. Apparently, an extender means you’re unable to open the exit door".

In a different TikTok post, uploaded back in October, Remi spoke out about how she began "freaking out" when she was unable to fasten her seatbelt during a Delta flight.

Remi, says she has "always loved Delta", but said she believes that the airline's new planes "have way shorter seatbelts than they did before", claiming that the belt just wouldn't fit around her body.

She recalled: "We were already taking off, and there was nothing I could do, so for the first time in my life I took off without wearing a seatbelt".

According to the Delta Air Lines website: "Delta does not require a passenger who needs a seatbelt extender or is unable to lower the armrest to purchase an additional seat.

"However, please be aware that if a passenger impedes on another passenger, they may be asked to move to another location that provides additional space, or in the event of a full flight, be asked to take a later flight with available seating."
