A couple on a cruise spent a little extra for the proverbial room-with-a-view only to find that HAL had a little surprise – it didn’t tell them beforehand about a crew member using a grinding tool outside their cabin’s window.
The YouTube caption says: "Thanks for telling us when you upcharged us $600 extra for the window guys."
There are over a thousand comments to the video on Nate Zemanek’s YouTube page.

July 18 2016 Upgrade: Seems that the couple were on their honeymoon. According to UPROXX, when they complained, HAL didn’t seem to care and told them that the maintenance work on the lifeboats would continue, from 9-5 daily, for the rest of the cruise. Later, after the issue went viral on Reddit and on YouTube, HAL refunded the $600 and gave them a free dinner.
