On a cross country flight, I once watched a little old lady, walk to the mid plane (I was in delta comfort), and tapped a young guy on the shoulder, asking if she could sit next to her husband. He went on an outrage saying how they should have purchased their seats together, it's not his duty to let them sit next to one another, and that he paid for his seat (it was economy... Boo fucking hoo). And declined. She then said "but I am in first class", then gave the same offer to the guy at the window who kindly accepted. Aisle seat was shut up by an 80 year old grandma. I couldn't help but laugh.

I gave my first class seat to some dude in coach so I could sit next to my wife. The guy couldn't understand what I was asking him at first and the n had the most amazed confused look when he did get it!
