A woman joked she "hates" her boyfriend after he accepted a free upgrade on their flight while she was left in economy class.

In a TikTok video, user Ellie Tindall @ellietindall from Nashville, Tennessee, shows her boyfriend looking comfy in his First Class seat while giving her a thumbs up and a cheeky wink.

She plays the song I Hate U by SZA and mouths along to the lyrics: "If you're wondering if I hate you… I do."

Ellie's video was watched more than 1.7 million times on the app after she uploaded it with the caption: "When your boyfriend books himself first class but books you in economy."

One user blasted: "I’d rather be with my girl in coach than alone in first class. Kind of a red flag."

"That would be the end of our relationship," commented a woman.

A third said: "I’m sorry upgraded or not you’re bugging if my boyfriend or husband leaves me alone on a flight. I wouldn’t do that to him."

Someone else said: "My husband did this while I was 6 months pregnant. my whole family was with me he was in 1st class."

A more supportive viewer commented: "You go, girl! Chill, people. Let the man enjoy his First Class experience."

Ellie, who is also on Instagram, replied to the more angry comments and explained her video was intended as a joke and she had actually encouraged her boyfriend to accept and enjoy his upgrade.

She wrote: "He got upgraded and I told him to take it because he paid for the trip!

"We are happy, just thought this was funny. Y'all shouldn't take life so seriously."

Flight attendants have previously given tips on how to blag a free flight upgrade and your options include bringing little gifts or turning up the charm and asking nicely.
