A flyer has complained about the “worst flight in [her] life” in a Facebook posting to an airline for giving her a windowless seat.

The dreams of a flight to remember were dashed, according to Nat Pelech’s post, after she found herself in a “claustrophobic, stinky and loud corner” of her Jetstar Australia plane, reported the Daily Telegraph.

“I was looking forward to enjoying the clouds,” she wrote in her Dec. 16 posting, but she was in for a rude shock when the row she was allocated to had this scenic view:

Jetstar did reply to Nat on Facebook. “I’m sorry to hear that you were unhappy with the seat that was allocated to you on your flight yesterday,” the company said. “It certainly wasn’t our intention for you to be uncomfortable on your journey with us.”

Her Facebook post included the following image of her leg, which was healing from a torn Achilles tendon:
