A man and his fiancé were boarding a plane when she had a meltdown after being told her bag was too big. The airline worker and a cop threw her off the plane, and when the cop asked if they were together, he denied it to save himself. He picked her up after she caught the next flight out and she was understandably upset with him. He wonders if he was an a**hole for choosing self-preservation over defending his fiancé. Read on to find out what people had to say about this incident.

Man denies relationship to fiancé to avoid getting kicked off plane 😱

A man and his fiancé were boarding a plane when the airline worker took issue with her carry-on bag. Despite the man's advice to only bring essentials, his fiancé brought a full-size bag that barely met the carry-on standards. As a result, the airline worker and a cop showed up, demanding that she be removed from the plane. In a moment of panic or self-preservation, the man denied any relationship with his fiancé, resulting in her being removed from the plane. While some may view his actions as selfish, the man's co-workers and boss were relying on him to return on time for a time-sensitive project. The man is left wondering if he was in the wrong for prioritizing his professional obligations over his fiancé's predicament. Read on for the comments and reactions to this controversial situation.
