    Lady reclines her seat.
    Dude freaks out about it because he's eating, and she puts it back up while he's eating. Afterwards she puts the seat back again and he punches the back of the seat a bunch.
    Then he just keeps tapping the seat as seen in the video.

    I thought this was clear. Seats recline and that's just the way it is. I'm tall And I recline the seat immediately on every flight. It provides me an easy sleeping position as well. I nap on planes like a child naps in the car. We take off and I'm asleep in minutes.

    However reading the Twitter comments people state that "The convenience of reclining pales in comparison to the inconvenience of the person behind you" and about half the user seem to feel that just using the reclining function of an airplane seat is in itself intrinsically an asshole move.

    What say you?
    Is it okay to use the reclining function on an airplane?

    That feature was installed for a purpose, and as soon as we're at altitude, I use it.

    Recline away. I usually don't use the recline function usually because half an inch makes no difference in my discomfort but I don't mind if other people use it.

    1/4 recline is ok, full recline and you get dealt with

    People who fully recline are ignorant and feel entitled....they need to be smashed in the face unless they beg me nicely and buy me several drinks up front, that I have no problem with. Be courteous and people won’t have to bounce your seat back and forth.....

    Entitled pussies....same pussies who think they can drive how they want and drive like an idiot and think their car is a force field protecting them

    by the way from what read, the gu y asked her not to recline because he cant recline his chair which leaves him limited space. she said ok. but later on she said fuck it and did it anyway. that is what started that

    Dont care what you do on domestic flight. Long haul I always get emergency exit row so I have tons of leg room.

    Both parties here are twats imo. There is much worse conduct on flights than reclining

    the fact that she is planning to sue him for that and contact fbi makes me lean more towards his side even though i think he acted like a petulant child. they are both waste of spaces
