You get reclining seats on planes.

Some people think it's fine to recline

Others don't

Brief enough for you? grin

some people are twats
other people are not.

Feel free to assign the label to the group of your choosing (recliners/not recliners) - that seems to be what everyone else has done grin

If you are tall, some people believe you should be punished pay for extra leg room, and let the person in front of you recline.

If you have a baby, you should put it in the overhead locker so the person in front of you retains their Right to Recline (I think that's in the UN Constitution, non?).

Hereyou are BOF.

But, really?

So there are votes for both sides?

Yup. And Bupcakes has set up her own airline - 'Cunting Airlines', for non-cunty, non-reclining people. It's all go.

I only ever recline if the person behind has already done so. Therefore if you're in the last row you have a moral obligation to recline wink

When I was a teenage backpacker on a longhaul flight I went to sleep with my feet on the fold down tray of the chair in front of me. I woke a couple of hours later to find that the person in front of me had reclined his chair and I was stuck, wedged, unable to move.

I went back to sleep.

Who WBU?

Sometimes i recline and sometimes i dont but not on a basis of who is sitting behind me. Fat, thin, short, tall or with babe in arms makes no difference to me as they haven't paid for my seat.

i read pages 1 2 and 13 (i think) got the general gist within approximately 20 seconds. should you do something just because you're technically entitled to?

I'm unable to decide so you were both being unreasonable thistledew

On a recent 5 hour flight ( leg 3 in a 36 hr + journey), I was in the back row. Which did not recline. Those in front obviously did. not pleasant!
