Flight journeys are not always very comfortable but at least they are convenient when you want to save up on time. While the leg space in flights is always an issue, a picture of an EasyJet passenger sitting on a plane seat with no backrest is going viral. What's worsened the situation was when the airline company asked to take down the picture from social media. While having a seat with no backrest is not shocking enough, the company tried to get the photo off social media. The airline received more backlash from people. But the airline later confirmed that no passengers were allowed to take those seats and they are awaiting repair. Mother Kicked Off EasyJet Flight in Spain For Wearing See-Through Top Without Bra.
