Had four flights this weekend. On each one of them the passenger in front reclined. (on the first flight, she reclined before takeoff and never put it back until landing.) On the last flight, the passenger in front reclined and then leant forward to rest his head on the tray. That meant that I had to recline to have any room. Reclined two notches on the seat. The angle stressed my back to where it still hurts. Either give us bigger pitch or eliminate the recline on flights of less than 2 hours.
I'm usually not all that bothered either way, but I don't stress if I pull harshly on the reclined seat to climb out of my seat. My wife, however, is 6'2" and all leg. In typical econo class her knees are hitting the seat in front of her before it reclines, and reclining her seat does nothing for her. It's miserable flying coach. For a short time she was worried about knocking the seat in front of her but now it's just part of the game. Complaints to the airlines get little done too...luckily, I suppose, we don't fly all that often.
yes some time it ll be ..
Surprised to hear this...
also surprised to hear this
although doubt the airlines themselves are unawares, or care that much, thanks to the revenue stream from "economy +" and other premium seats...
They probably assume that shorthaul this is OK and longhaul that pax will just have to deal with it.
I just need a few people banned upfront...
Generally I do like the flexibility of a notch or two, but I rarely lean back more than that and I do not begrudge the passenger in front of me the same. It depends on how tight the seats are. If my nose is in the hair of the passenger in front of me, that is unacceptable.
Had someone flat out refuse to put their seat up when I asked...pax had the seat reclined but was leaning forward the whole time, not even leaning back into the seat.
If asked, I will notch forward.
I hate the recline. Never use it myself.
The only reason I hardly use it is because I love the feeling of waking up when the plane hits the ground. If I'm reclined, I'm awakened by the FA and have a miserable 20-30 minute wait before I land.
I hate people that recline without being aware of who/what is behind them. I always check behind me and may only recline a little bit.
Same here, but I often have a hard time seeing how much space the person has behind me. I usually recline 1-2 inches. It's enough so I'm not sitting straight up and hopefully doesn't take up too much space for the person behind me.
This. That last 30 minutes, especially on a redeye, make all the difference in the world.
