Woman sparks debate after ignoring passenger who tried to flirt with her via flight messaging app


SOME people dream of meeting a handsome stranger on their flight.

But when this woman received an onboard message, she was less than impressed.

Steph, 25, was relaxing on her flight to Mexico when she noticed a chat invitation on her screen.

The message simply read: "9E has sent you a chat invitation."

The Californian native decided to ignore the message, "I turned off the screen to avoid interacting," she said.

She added: "For those asking, I didn't reply or accept because he was sitting in the row in front of me… it was awkward."

Steph wasn't looking for romance, or even to make friends on her flight, so the whole interaction came off as a bit weird.

She's not the only one that was put off by the message request either, one person said, "people will make anything a dating app these days."

Another said: "My anxiety operates at a high capacity, this would send me through the roof!

"Confined space and it's not like your can really hide!"
