The reason for this is simple. The person in the middle seat has drawn the short straw on the flight and as a consolation prize the universe has decided they get the arm rests.

Just be thankful you don’t have to sit in the middle seat this trip! And as a bonus if you get lucky and there’s no one in the middle seat, everyone’s a winner.
