I could, it's my right but I won't.

I don't like recliners but I try not to let is stress me out. The only time it's a problem is if it's a tall person and I have to look at their scalp. I've actually counted the freckles on a bald guys head...
on a flight from Chicago to San Diego, The guy two seats to my right started coughing continuously when the guy in front of him reclined. As soon as he put his seat up and moved, the coughing stopped. I might need to use that one day.

Great points but the way I see it it's not a curtsy issue. I liken this situation to not flying your airplanes into United States airspace without permission. Just because you got an airplane that can fly anywhere doesn't mean you can take it anywhere. The space in front of my seat is my airspace and you can't fly your seat through it. Very simple.

I will make your flight miserable and enjoy doing it (the S10 of flying)....and after I'm done I will call the flight attendant and have you recline back up....hopefully you're stupid enough not to listen to them so when I push the seat so hard your face hits the seat in front of you I will have cover.

Re: To recline or not recline

Ya know, this situation reminds me of the yeonpyeong islands. maybe the UN can mediate between hooskins and saden, and come to a technical cease-fire. Still have to watch out for the incidental shelling though!

I resolve all my conflicts through rock/paper/scissors and if that doesn't jive I imagine I'll be smashing your head with the rock, stabbing your neck with the scissors and leaving a blood soaked note on your chest that reads "Darwin Award Candidate."

Re: To recline or not recline

if i feel like it, i recline. ive never had an issue with it personally. never had a person kick or hold up my seat back, never had an issue with someone reclining into me, yeah its a bit annoying when someone puts their seat back but thats just the way it is. im of the thought that the person in front of me has a right to recline.

if someone asked me nicely to move my seat back up and they had a legit reason (i.e. tall person) then i would most certainly do so unless it was a long flight and i wanted to try and get some sleep, then i would tell them "sure no problem but when i get tired im going to have to put my seat back".

if it was some small person or a person who wanted to use their laptop on their tray and my reclining effected that, i probably wouldnt unless they asked very nicely.

some people recline, others dont.

i had to fly with my lil brothers girlfriend last week. she said repeatedly before the trip that she doesnt like sitting next to strangers on the plane. we fly southwest, she is OCD so she pretty much gets in the first boarding group, im usually in the last group.

so she gets on early, grabs an aisle seat with a stranger sitting in the window seat, so when i come on the plane i have to first go back 20 rows to find an over head storage bin (which goes against my civil rules, put your overhead above your head rule), then i have to sit in the middle seat next to a stranger and her. kinda sucks but whatever. when the plane lands im that ahole who has to push thru people to get back to where my overhead carry on is.

so on the flight back, same set up but she boards alil before i do this time, but this time there is a complete empty row right behind her yet she still chose a row where someone was already sitting in the window seat and she took the aisle seat to force me into the middle seat and to ensure a stranger doesnt sit next to her.

well, i had already had it with this know-it-all, i want an expensive wedding law school student, so when i see the set up i tell her im sitting in another row. just realy rude of her to place her wants of having an aisle seat and not having to sit next to a stranger vs placing me in the middle seat next to a stranger, which i dont mind, i had a great conversation with a minnesota grandma on the way up. but to force me to sit in the middle seat unnecessarily, man, eff that with a wiffle ball bat.

Re: To recline or not recline

I try to avoid anything like planes where your stuck/crammed into something with a bunch of people and you have no control over the situation. If I was stuck on the tarmac (sp?) for 5 or 6 hours like you read about I would go nuts until they had no choice but to let me off the plane.

Re: To recline or not recline

I hate every part of flying. Every single freaking part. I'm terrified to fly, but I do it when I have to. I'm 6'3, so I hate it when the shithead in front of me reclines, but at that point I'm already so miserable it doesn't matter.

Re: To recline or not recline

There's now a 3 hour rule in effect for sitting on the tarmac. That's long enough as it is.

3 Hours! I'd start to go crazy after about 30min and my breaking point is around an hour.

Re: To recline or not recline

The worst is in the summer or a hot location, stuck on the tarmac. Many planes can't provide proper A/C until their engines are fully running.

Re: To recline or not recline

I flew to Houston, for work, and reclined all the way there. I expect some massive reclinage on my flight back too.

May the biggest dick wins and I'm always in it to win it.
Actually if you think about how the seats are set up and how they function then you should realize that those few inches in front of your knees are not your space. They belong to the guy in front of you.
And if you were to act like like you advertise than security could be waiting for you at the gate like the hothead in the CNN article.

Re: To recline or not recline

They should really just get rid of reclining seats altogether. Problem solved.
