Shoshana Strykert, 28, took to Facebook to share an open letter to Jetstar, an airline based in Australia, in which she expressed her disappointment over how she was treated on a flight on Feb. 8.
"You did not let up with your mutters of annoyance and looks over your shoulder. I apologized to everyone around me. I almost started crying myself," she wrote in a post on Facebook.
