WATCH: Passenger caught on video punching, pushing woman’s reclined seat

Posted: Updated:

A passenger aboard an American Airlines flight is sparking a conversation online about the etiquette involved in reclining seats on flights.

Wendi Williams posted a video to Twitter, which has since gone viral, of a man punching and pushing the back of her seat in economy class.

Williams says he started doing it because she reclined her chair.

The woman, who says she has a neck condition, says the incident has given her headaches – and now wants to press charges against the man.

American Airlines says it is looking into the incident and says, "The safety and comfort of our customers and team members is our top priority."
