A fashion blogger was asked to leave her First Class seat on a flight - because her crying baby was upsetting other passengers.

The incident occurred on a Delta flight to Los Angeles, and the woman was asked to move to the back of the plane.

Arielle Noa Charnas, whose Instagram handle @somethingnavy has 944,000 followers, shared an explanation of what happened on her feed.

She said: "On our way to LA a few days ago it was my first time flying with Ruby, I had a screaming crying sleepy baby who was so overwhelmed that she couldn't fall asleep.

"My husband and I paid for first class so that we'd have the extra space and could lay down with her - once we were boarded I was getting tons of eye rolls and head shakes from fellow passengers on @delta because my baby was crying (as if I could just look at Ruby and say okay now it's time to stop 😂).

I tried to ignore the people until 10 minutes passed and a flight attendant came over to me and asked me and my baby to move to the back of the plane (as if the people in the back didn't matter).

"Give up our seats that we paid for and move. Apparently I was upsetting and getting a lot of complaints from the first class passengers. I started crying because I was so stressed and anxious and instead of the stewardess being helpful and compassionate she instead made the situation worse.

"I don't know what's right and wrong when it comes to flying with a baby but after telling a few people the story they were in shock. Thoughts? We're headed back to NYC today and we're hoping for a much better experience."

According to the Standard, a spokeswoman from Delta said: "Delta flight attendants are trained to provide safe transport and excellent customers service.

"We fully support all passengers travelling in the class of service for which they paid."

Many followers said she should not have been moved, calling it "so wrong". Others said they could understand why it happened as fellow First Class travellers paid extra for 'peace, quiet, space and luxury".

Do you think flight attendants were wrong to ask her to move? Leave a comment in the box below.
