Man Stood For 6 Hours In Flight To Let Wife Sleep. Twitter Divided

An image of a man standing in an airplane while his wife slept across a row of three seats has divided opinions on Twitter. The photograph was shared on the microblogging website by a user named Courtney Lee Johnson on Friday, where it has collected over 15,000 'likes' and thousands of comments.

"This guy stood up the whole 6 hours so his wife could sleep. Now THAT is love," he wrote. The photograph shows an elderly man standing while a woman lies across three seats in a flight.
