So I’m on a British Airways jet that seats around three hundred. It’s divided into three sections:

- a luxurious first class with seats that can recline into full beds without touching other seats
- business class with wider aisles and fewer seats next to each other
- coach class with cramped nine-seat rows

There were maybe fifty people on the plane. I had a whole row to myself in coach. They could have moved everybody to first class and had room to spare. Of course they didn’t.

What would make them do that except hatred for their fellow man?
