  • A Delta passenger said she had to tape up her window on an eight-hour flight from Nice to New York.
  • Ally Shapiro showed herself taping a safety booklet to a window for shade on the flight on TikTok.
  • She called the situation “insane” and said a flight attendant was “dismissive” of her concerns.

A Delta passenger said she had to tape safety pamphlets to her window on an eight-hour international flight after she was told by a flight attendant it was the only way she could get shade. 

Content creator Ally Shapiro uploaded a series of TikTok videos about her experience flying Delta from Nice, France to New York earlier this month. In the first clip, which has over 4.1 million views, Shapiro shared a “POV” of the flight where she said she had to tape her “own window shade bc Delta decided not to include on an 8 hr flight.”

The video, posted on July 9, shows Shapiro using tape to stick a Delta flight-safety booklet to the window next to her seat and giving a thumbs to the camera when she finished.

In the caption, Shapiro wrote: “I used to be a very loyal delta customer, but this was just insane.” She also said she was made to remove the tape before landing in the US because she was told “management would be upset.”

Shapiro and representatives for Delta Airlines did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment, made outside of regular working hours. 

In a follow-up TikTok, which has received over 185,900 views, Shapiro provided context to what she said happened on the flight and shut down speculation that the airplane window may have been fitted with a button-operated shade tint option. 

“This window did not have a tint,” she said in the clip shared on July 10. “As you can see, I walked onto the plane and it already had this tape on it because there was no window shade.”

She also said that the first flight attendant that she spoke to about the lack of shade on the window wasn’t responsive to her concerns. 

“The first stewardess was very rude to us, very dismissive, basically saying ‘What do you want me to do about it?’ And I’m like it’s an eight-hour flight from Nice to New York. I need to sleep. I cannot be on this flight with 1,000 degree temperature and no window shade for eight hours,” she added. 

Shapiro said she paid around $2,000 for the ticket. 

She also said she did not bring tape with her on the flight. “The other much more friendly stewardess gave us tape and gave us a safety booklet to tape ourselves on the window,” Shapiro said. 

“As someone that already has so much anxiety when I fly, this was a really sucky situation for me and I wish they could’ve handled it better or at least offer us a different seat because I cannot fly like this,” she added.
