Wife books first class plane tickets for honeymoon; husband says 'fly by yourself.'

Wife books first class plane tickets for honeymoon; husband says 'fly by yourself.'


My wife 'Hannah' (F30) and I (M33) are going on a Europe vacation next year, visiting England, Italy and France. We got married a couple of months ago, so this is meant to be a late honeymoon.

Hannah and I are in the process of booking everything, we split it up so I was in charge of booking hotels and Hannah flights, and we checked with each other obviously. Well, yesterday she booked the flights and all of them were business/first class.

We have a flight from Paris to Milan and I said to go with a budget airline, but she booked that with Air France which is like, triple the price of the others.

I was furious. I asked her why she spent so much money on flights, Hannah said she thought we should spoil ourselves with all the luxuries for our honeymoon. I told her we need to change all of those to economy. She said I could change mine if I wanted, but she wants to experience first class for once.

We've been arguing about this, her reasoning is we (I) can afford it so why not. I have a well paying job, but this doesn't mean I can throw around money like this. I eventually said she can have all the first class flights she wants, but we need to drop one of the countries to use the hotel/sightseeing money for the plane.

Hannah got really upset and said she was just trying to make our honeymoon special. AITA?

ETA: we did discuss everything before booking, which hotels to book, which flights, etc.

NTA. I'm married but I am super petty. I would cancel the whole thing. Money doesn't grow on trees and if her only argument is that you can afford it....girl bye. She made a unilateral decision after you both discussed everything prior and that is not ok. Ask her to pay the difference between economy and first class. NTA.

NTA. You say you had discussed what flights beforehand. So your wife is just saying fuck that and making her own decision, I guess? Not cool.

NTA, she needs to be a bit more understanding. You're being reasonable.
