Reclining seat on a flight

Recommended Posts

Few months ago I was on a 7 hours flight (night flight) and few minutes after take off my wife reclined her seat. Behind us, the whole row was occupied by an American family of 3.

 

The woman asked us if we could not recline and we answered her that we will do it during the meals but not at all times. She went crazy, started insulting and called the hostess, who of course told her that we have all the right to recline our seats. At this point the man (probably 150kg) sat behind my wife and started shaking violently her seat until we had to ask help from the crew.

 

The whole thing ended because they were told that next time the captain would be involved but during all flight I had their kid behind kicking my seat (probably instructed from his terrible ineducated and ignorant parents).

 

In 20 years of flight it was the first time that this happened to me but I recall seeing the same exact thing on a flight and again it was an American involved.

 

So my question is, is in the USA less acceptable to recline seats than everywhere else in the world?

interesting that the guy shook your wife's seat and not yours. there was another case in the press recently when a man persistently shook the seat of a woman passenger in front of him, would he have done the same seat was occupied by a male? the airline in the situation were shocking in their defence of the female passenger.

reclining a seat is normal and is to be expected, if you feel strongly about the seat in front of you not being reclined then arrange for a front row seat, and only fly when this is available.

Should not have to deal with mean spirited people on an airplane...

 

I have run into similar behavior in Thai theaters...loud talking on cell (alway female)...parents allowing children to bang on the back of seats and generally disregard the presence of other movie goers.
