If EVERYONE behaved like a decent human being, then the lady wouldnt be standing.
She would be sitting in the seat that SHE booked for herself.
If you have reserved a seat and find someone sitting in it, then they SHOULD move when you produce your ticket, just like people SHOULD give up their seats to people more in need.
This thread is about moral obligations, morals seem in short supply these days.
I would stand. (and then maybe try and find a guard to explain the circumstances and try and get her a seat in 1st class, so I could have mine back. Although I doubt I would be successful.:rolleyes:)

First of all, there is always a carriage that has no reserved seating so someone there should give up their seat. Secondly, if you are pregnant and know you are going on a long train ride then you should take responsibility for your well being and book a seat!

Not normally inclined to comment but I feel very cross at the people who would not give up their seat and rant about the poor woman not pre-booking, it's her fault she is pregnant, benefits, scroungers, over-population and having paid a whole £50 extra etc etc. Is this the Daily Mail forum? Perhaps she is an illegal immigrant benefit scrounging single mother too????
Decency costs NOTHING. YES so I would give up my seat. And I am knocking on a bit.
As for those "not visibly disabled", isn't a smile and perhaps an apology with a short explanation not make everyone feel much happier?
I really despair. Dig deep for your human side and stay in touch

If that woman did not have the forethought to buy an advanced ticket then I don't see why I should have to give my seat up.

If someone was obese, and carrying the same excess body weight then i would not give my seat up for them, so why should it be any different for a pregnant woman.
