All travelers know that there is a lot to be desired when it comes to “mood lighting” on flights—also if you fly in business class.

The solution is? Well, for some people, if the plane’s not the right light, you must do it yourself.

That is exactly what Instagram influencer Harimao Lee did when she snapped this photo of himself sitting in business class, wrapped in a blanket and lightly, as she looked out her window, a glass of champagne.

Sure, it’s quite a length to go to just to stage a photo, but it is a nice picture to say the least.

Still, according to the Daily Mail, Lee’s picture led to a number of mild internet “outrage” because the people thought that the staging was too much. And, as some pointed out, Lee was sitting backwards in her chair to get a better snap.

Some even went as far as to claim that the lights are prohibited by the TSA, but a simple check on the TSA website shows that holiday-lighting, LED lighting, Christmas lighting and torches are allowed.

Lee loves to play with different kinds of light on her Instagram, the Daily Mail reported, so posing with the string lights in the interesting locations, is not new for her. She posed with them for, as well as a number of other unique forms of lighting.

While some consider the picture to be exaggerated, others praised the photo for being creative. According to the Daily Mail, a number of Lee’s followers called it “beautiful” and that they “appreciate how much effort would have gone into a photo like this.”

Either way, we don’t have enough space in our cabin for lights, because they were full of these important items.
