But the innovative idea, which was shared to Facebook group Passenger Shaming and created using a blanket, split the internet in two.

‘Brilliant! That’s thinking outside of the box,’ enthused one, while a second admitted: ‘That’s pretty ingenious, actually!’

A third commented: ‘I’m not going to lie, I’m impressed,’ while a fourth added: ‘That’s genius, I’m not even mad.’

However, a select few took to the comments section to raise an issue with the safety hazards. 

‘I guess the handle next to the door must not be used for this due to safety reasons,’ wrote one, while a second penned: ‘In front of the exit row door. Endangering hundreds of lives. Genius indeed.’

A further added: ‘If it wasn’t so rude, intrusive, and dangerous, it’s actually a smart idea. Too bad.’

But others quickly jumped to the passenger’s defense and offered nothing but praise for the ingenious device.

‘It’s probably a safety hazard and not allowed but I have to give her props for ingenuity,’ wrote one, while another admitted:    

‘Honestly, I think she is brilliant. And. no, that’s not a handle to operate the exit door as some people have speculated.’

‘And no, if there was an emergency, I’m pretty sure she would wake up the same as every other person on that aircraft and comply with FA instructions. She is winning in my book!’

A further added: ‘I can think of lots worse things passengers do.’

Others criticized the woman for blocking the exit row door and endangering her fellow passengers (pictured)
