Woman's Video About Hitting the 'Airplane Lotto' Couldn't Be More Spot-On

We feel like this every single time.

Let's face it: If you're not a people person, flying on an airplane can be a very unpleasant activity. In fact, even if you are a people person, it can be unpleasant. The airport itself is always busy and crowded, and the airplane seats are so small. After you board, the idea of personal space is basically a distant memory.

That just means that when we do board a flight and discover the seat next to us is empty and we get to spread out, it's the best feeling ever, as @rvlivingandmore perfectly demonstrated in a video on TikTok. She explained what winning the airplane lotto is, and we couldn't agree with her more.

"It feels like you hit the lotto when the last person gets on the plane and you end up getting the entire row to yourself!" she wrote, sharing the view from her seat. She sat by the window, and the two other seats in her row were totally empty. She's so lucky! 

And judging by the comments on the video, it seems like there are a lot of people out there who feel this way, too.

"Had that on a 16 hour flight to New York once. Bliss," one commenter shared.

If only there was a way to guarantee this would happen every flight we take... but we understand that other people have places to be, too. Is a free upgrade to first class too much to ask?
