  • A TikTok went viral showing a woman on a Southwest Airlines plane lying in the overhead locker.
  • The video was viewed over 5 million times before appearing to be deleted.

A TikTok video recently went viral showing a woman lying in the overhead locker of a Southwest Airlines plane, leaving passengers baffled.

The video was viewed over 5 million times on TikTok, according to The New York Post. As of Friday morning, it appears to have been deleted from the platform.

"Southwest is wildn," the TikTok user @gmonique_123 captioned the video.

People in the comments were puzzled over the incident.

"That looks way more comfortable than the actual seats. give me a pillow and close the hatch," read one comment that The Daily Mirror reported.

"Southwest does allow you to choose your own seat," another commenter joked.

The passenger was found by a flight attendant before the plane took off from Albuquerque to Phoenix, according to ABC News.

It isn't clear how long she was in the locker, or how she got in.

Southwest Airlines didn't respond to a request for comment from Business Insider made outside normal working hours.

Perhaps surprisingly, it is not the first time this sort of behavior has been seen on a Southwest flight.

Back in 2019, a Southwest Airlines flight attendant was spotted lying in the overhead lockers. A passenger on the plane, Veronica Lloyd, posted a video to social media showing the bizarre moment.

"I can't get over how weird I find this," she said. "@SouthwestAir please get it together."

The flight attendant was reportedly lying on her side in the locker for 10 minutes, Lloyd told Fox News. After she came down from the bin, the rest of the flight was compeltely normal, Lloyd added.

The overhead lockers can be a point of contention between passengers on a flight looking to secure a spot for their bags.

One travel influencer laid out etiquette rules around the overhead bins and argued that a lot of people tend to get it wrong. He said that the overhead locker directly above your seat doesn't belong to you. Instead, it's a first-come, first-serve.

Another TikToker sparked debate after telling people not to put their bags in the overhead lockers over other people's seats.

Overhead locker space is a hot-button issue for passengers, so it's probably wise to avoid using it as a seat, too.
