Possible to get it waived two months after paid? Or too late

Not sure; I’m in a state where they have to refund the rest of the year so the cost to them was clear and immediate, which may have incentivized them to help.

I think it’s still worth a shot, though. Best bet is probably to politely threaten to just cancel even if you don’t get the fee back, since they’ll know that means they sacrifice future business from you.

Appropriate response
1) Kindly ask him to at least let watch whatever I am hearing
2) Ring flight attendant call button and let them deal with him
3) Evil eye through my mask
4) Grab his phone and throw it down the aisle
5) Politely explain that headphones or earbuds were invented for this exact reason

I am thinking option 4
